Instagram Has a Holiday Gift For You!
I never felt inclined to join up with Instagram. My continued lack of interest in doing so hasn't had anything to do with any particular issue with Instagram. I just never bothered. For whatever reasons, it just didn't appeal to me enough to take the time to join or use.
But now there's a very good reason to not join Instagram. And because of this reason, I'm quite happy I never hooked up with them. You see, Instagram has announced it has the right to sell your photos. And guess what else? They're claiming the right to sell them without paying you a penny! Nope. Not one red cent. Not only that, they say they can do so in perpetuity and without any notification at all. Nice deal, right? I mean, you know, nice deal for Instagram.
Don't believe me? I don't blame you. I didn't believe it either until I read THIS ARTICLE on C|NET's web page.
As you might imagine, I'm now very happy about my ambivalence and lack of interest in joining Instagram. Oh! Did I mention that Instagram says you have no right to opt out? You know, now that they've decided they can sell your images? Well, that's what they say.
That's Mia at the top pulling off one of her white satin gloves while wearing some sexy and festive Christmas/Xmas/Solstice/Kwanzaa/Hanukkah/Holiday/Whatever lingerie. (Click it to enlarge.) I shot this one and some others of Mia just last night. Oh yeah. I shot two other pretty girls as well. But they weren't wearing gloves or sexy and festive holiday wear. In fact, they were wearing even less than Mia. Yeah. My job sucks. (Not.)
