Upsplash is a winner

Upsplash is a winner

I’ve rather neglected this site of late. Busy is as busy does as they say. Notwithstanding this I discovered a fabulous photo library today that I’d like to share. Upsplash offer 10 new photos every 10 days. The pictures are help under a Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication, which essentially means that anyone can use the pictures for any purpose with the exception of selling them or claiming the copyright.

The library is small but pretty. The images collection looks edited and of the 100 or so currently available I can see most of them being used somewhere.

As an experiment here are a pair of images I made using just one of the available images. I was thinking of the word “worthy” and “vernacular” when I put them together. I’ll leave you to judge which is which.
