Sorry for the delay, but I needed to put up a video almost 30 minutes long and pictures from the 2015 Anniston Christmas Parade.  This year, the parade was held on an Saturday afternoon, and it was one of the longest parades with a great crowd thanks to warm weather.  Enjoy the video and pictures!

Hey Anniston, Why Did You Not Give Credit To The Photos I Took


Picture2wefwe

Do you hate it when someone uses your work without the credit?  I am sure anyone would be livid if someone used your work and never gave the credit for it!  Well, I am having to go through this, because the City of Anniston used my photos without permission!  A TV commercial was made for Neewollah on Noble 2015 by Jacbos Media Services.  I gave them permission to use my photos for their TV ad.  But, I learned that instead the city of Anniston gave Jacobs Media Services photos to use in the TV ad.  To view the ad go to the 8:20 mark in this video below.

So, let’s compare the photos in the ad to the photos I have taken here on Geek Alabama.

As you can see, those photos above look very similar to the TV ad, because they are photos I took!  Come on Anniston, it would have been nice to at least give credit to where these photos are at!  By the way, you can view these photos at:  http://geekalabama.com/2013/10/27/neewollah-on-noble-lobsterfest-2013/

Oh well, I guess I am used to this now, because there are those who don’t take me Nathan Young or Geek Alabama seriously!  Lesson for anyone, give credit before using someone else’s work!
