    A work peep sent this to me on Friday. I would never be so brave (or stupid) as to take someone else’s work and pretend it’s my own. Well at least in photography. There is a generous amount “borrowing” that goes on in consulting but that’s another story altogether.

    Surprising that in today’s technical age someone would be so bold, when it’s pretty easy to discover this sort of thing. What’s that website where you can put in an image and it will come back with all the places on the web where that same image can be found?

    Good catch. I missed that.

    It is sad. I feel bad for people who paid hundreds of dollars for a hack photographer.

    Tin Eye was listed in the comments. It’s interesting, but doesn’t seem to crawl my gallery2 installation.
