Photos from Liberty City MLK Day Parade

It did rain on Liberty City’s Martin Luther King Day parade, but the procession went down anyway, kicking off with the FIU marching band’s downpour-defying version of Sam & Dave’s “Hold On!”. Here are some photos taken along 54th Street.

    Oh no. Tell me that I am not seeing watermarks on Beached Miami’s big, beautiful photos.

    Thanks for noticing. You think it takes away from the images too much? The photos are under creative commons. It was a careful decision. This way I still get credit for my work when other sites use the photos.

    It’s just something that I personally don’t like or feel there’s a need for it unless you’re making your livelihood from the pictures that you post or you have evidence that someone has been lifting and using them for their personal gain.

    The only watermarks that I thought worked well were the ones used by Miami Fever when he was posting. They were highly stylized and actually complimented the photo in some cases.

    I’ve been loving the photos here at Beached Miami and I just hate to see the images marked up unless there’s an absolute need to do so.

    Keep up the great work.

    My take: If someone uses the image via URL, we will know and be able to ask them to credit us (if they haven’t) or to take down the pic. If they steal the photo via screen shot, then we wouldn’t know and they are probably going to screen shot around the watermark anyway. So the only effective watermarks are dead center of a photo, and we’re definitely not doing that. I say, make the copyright settings clear (in your photo client and somewhere on the sight) and count on general decency.

    Are we supposed to read the trucker hat the way one would read instructions on a roadway, or is that just a grammatical atrocity (or delight, depending on your sense of humor)…?
