This is a Follower submitted image. It does not appear anywhere else on the Internet. The lighting and composition is very good. The words in the caption were written (added) by me. I believe these words compliment the “tone” of the photograph as I interpreted it. This does not mean the original photographer AGREES with me on them, moreover the “final content” is a marriage of imagery and text - a permanent relationship intended to last forever. I hope the message is clear. Enjoy! ~ Centauri4
Hello Billy Monday,
If I have done this with one of the images first posted by you, I sincerely apologize! This is not my usual method of operation, in fact, the images I enjoy working with the most are typically “Uncredited” because I do not want to bother to remove ANY existing information in order to create a “different” story using the image. It is also more difficult to do on an Android smartphone with the Tumblr app because the phone does not have a robust editor - one for placing captions within the frame of the image.
If I have re-tumbled one of your image and the message included with it took something away from the image, please help me find it. I just scrolled through the first several pages of yours and I honestly do not recognize any of them. I guess that is another “tricky” feature of Tumblr, when it comes to locating a specific image or “jumping” back to a point in time where one specific image appears.
I appreciate everything photographers do to create images, from finding models, to maintaining the equipment, to traveling to remote locations in order to “get the shot”. This all requires dedication, patience and of course “the means” (funding, or finances) to make the pictures possible!
I also encourage Tumblr users to search out images using "Reverse Image Searches" such as those possible with Google; by using the "Search tools" > "Time" > "Custom Range". This allows the User to specify a set of dates such as 1/1/2010 to 12/31/2005 and see the number of COPIES of images appearing in that time frame.
If 45 images appeared in the time frame specified, then scrolling through them in order to find the OLDEST one is much easier than when there are a hundred or two hundred. If the User selectively turns the "Search tools" ON and OFF by clicking that option, the total number of files found using the search is shown (even with images). This helps the Tumblr content creator to identify the oldest image when 50,000 copies of it exist.
As far as adding political statements TO an image:
Well, there is a small argument to be made for the fact that IF an image can be right-clicked and saved, then it was not protected from being used for other purposes. It is only a small argument and I will not make it very loudly, but it is an argument none-the-less. If I am able to take an image and place some sort of statement on it, then THE NEW IMAGE which I have created using your image as a background is something new. It is not the same image it was when you uploaded it, it is now my image. My creation. If you wanted to truly protect the image from ANY use at all, then it should be Watermarked or only uploaded to a website where visitors can on;y view a Thumbnail of the original and then purchase “Full-sized copies” for their viewing pleasure and enjoyment.
That would protect your “original work” as it was first made known to the world. I am not sure if Tumblr is the best place for actual photographers, the ones who are trying to make a living from their craft, to share images for the first time (or at all).
I also created a template for applying to Internet "found images" so that the image would be shown with a consistency of appearance, including specific fields, IF or WHEN they are used in my Tumblog. My content attribution Template looks like this:
Simply nude | Lara Stone | From something called, "Naked Purple Throwback 2" - also available HERE. I am not familiar with the person or the photographer, but they seem to have done a competent job capturing the bold beauty of this captivating human.
The Nude in Photography | Naturism as a Way of Living | 03.08.2014 | U.S.A.
Having a "Template" like this only requires creating it once, saving it to your hard drive as a “*.TXT” (Plain Text) or “*.RTF” (Rich Text) file, and then performing the Reverse Image Searches and identifying the original artist. The text I quoted (or indented) above is an actual sample previously used on my Tumblog.
So, as far as crediting people for their work, I feel like I am making more of an effort than most to do that. Thank you for this question and raising the level of awareness for ALL Tumblr Users in this area!

The quality and composition of this photograph most closely aligns with my memories of family times past. The lighting, the decor, the setting in general, these all fit my memory and having this particular subject included in them just makes it more.
