“A good novel tells us the truth about its hero;
but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.”
There are two reasons for today’s post.
The first is that I like the quote!
The second is that I wanted to test the new move by Getty, one of the world’s great photo libraries, to make 35 million (yup, that’s million) photos free to use on social media sites and blogs. As with embedding a youtube video on a site, you embed the photo with some code; this means you can’t edit it in any way, and Getty adds a photographer credit and link back to its site (as you can see in the photo I’ve used above).
If you’re a blogger or a social media user who likes to add images to your posts, this is an interesting development. More info here.
