After the storms

posted on 11th of april, 2012

One week has past since a system of storms passed through the northern part of Texas bringing with it rain, baseball sized hailstones, and 21 confirmed tornadoes. Over 1100 homes were damaged with approximately 350 of those destroyed. It is estimated that the cost of damages is between $300 million and $500 million.

Remarkably, despite the power of the storms and the large number of people living in the area, no one was killed and few were injured. Recovery is currently underway, and neighbors are helping neighbors.

(More images of the recovery have been uploaded.)

I'm a fellow Texan (though am an expat right now) and I saw this on the news. Wow, that was some horrible weather! I'm glad that it wasn't worse than what it was. Best wishes on your sales of these images and for recovery efforts.

Pinterest is a social networking site that has been gaining a lot of following in recent months.

The difference is that this is done visually, and most users organize their topics into boards that they "pin" sites they find of "interest". The pinned site is shown on Pinterest by a single picture that the user selects from the page they are sharing. Once shared, a pin can be repinned by others over and over and over. Pinterest is driven by pictures ... pretty pictures. If you take a closer look, Pinterest is driven by pretty pictures that are...

Agree with Brad and Wisconsinart, surly this would be the same reason we should not plaster all our images over other social network sites like Facebook etc. I throw a few up for feedback from time to time but the amount of watermarked images out there is huge. I'm sure buyers are not randomly searching these sites for images when they could just come here and see nearly 14 million that are pretty easy to search. On the other side, I'll go take a look at it :-)
