Oho. So I have ! More than mere drawings; paintings ? They could be serigraphs, with their beautiful flat color fields. Congratulations !

I appreciate both sites, Wright Chat and The Wright Attitude. Facebook enables easy sharing of photos, something which is more difficult here, where the sharing of ideas takes precedence.

Stan has navigated the task of administrating the site fairly. I haven’t seen any examples of name calling on The Wright Attitude, but maybe I haven’t followed it closely enough.

Stan- Doesn’t your site allow sharing photos of others as long as credit is given?

It does, with the caveat that the usage is in support of some sort of point you are trying to make about the architecture. We try to stay away from "pictures for pictures sake" unless they're your own shots, and you're simply sharing your travels.

We also allow the use of uncredited works (ie - "I pulled it off the internet") provided it meets the caveat from above, and you are clear that it was not your work to begin with.

Rule #1 at the WA is to "be a good human", and this photo policy is just our way of insuring that folks treat photographers as the good humans we know them to be.
