Another possibility

As I described in the previous blog people happily nick things from the internet, and I am the last one to say I never did it. Let he who is without sin… But there are other ways as wel.

Saint-Vincent 2011 - Saint-Ythaire
An American sent me in May 2014 the following email:
I'm working on a documentary film called American Wine Story (, and I was wondering if we might be able to use one of your photos (with credit) in our film project. It's a photo of a group of people carrying a St. Vincent statue, and it would illustrate one of the interviews.
Of course I consented, and I even had to sign a form saying I was agreeing to let them use my pictures.
Around the same time I received a similar question concerning a picture I took of the interior of a church. I had taken several pictures just before major renovation works started. They had found my pictures on the internet; they were going to be used to illustrate a booklet about Romanesque churches around Buxy. And also this time I consented. My name is mentioned on the last page of the book, together with the other people who contributed. Which proves that you can use other’s work without stealing it!

Information about Saint-Vincent and Romanesque churches can also be found on the website of La Tuilerie de Chazelle.
