hmmm. with all the laughs flying Mike, why don't you let us view YOUR website.

we'd probably all be in shock when we find a collection of all the photos we've ever posted on lawn site.

j/k

i never claimed it to be my work, and it isn't in my portfolio section, just in some little pics on the main page as filler really.Come on, it's on your home page! You don't expect us to believe that it's not your work?

one thing i can say is, there is NO WAY i'm ever sending any pics to anyone but customers.See Below.

i do remember chris having issues with this picture once before. what a pain.
As I've told you guys before, when you submit photos to contests, you expose yourself to a wide variety of future events. This photo is one that I submitted in my early years and has been long forgotten. I don't hold any grudge toward bmwsmitty for using it, although I my hope is that everyone will always use their own work to describe their own style. However, I understand that I also once had to get started, and I needed some graphics to get started with. I really don't remember what the guys name was, but I do know that I had his permission to use his photo. I guess I feel it is only appropriate that you have permission to use other's work; therefore, it is a matter of morals and ethics. In the spirit of Christmas, I am going to leave this as a gift. Good luck to you as I hope you gain an enormous amount of business off of it.

Hey now that is an awesome idea. I am having a website built right now. I bet I could squeeze in a few of those awesome pics from Joey. You guys would believe me if I told you I flew down to SO Cal to install those wouldn't you?

On the Kichler topic, again my disclaimer, I'm just a beginner, but...

That photo recently posted of the corroded Kichler AZT freaked me right the frig out. My new ecomony material for spots has been upgraded to copper.

What? You don't want people stealing the photos that you stole? Now that's classic!
