All the photos on are copyright 2001-2006 by Johnny M. Patterson.  However, nearly all of the photos are available for re-use under the following terms.

Printing photos for personal use--

If you want to print a copy of one of my photos to show your pals or for use in your own project, then please feel free to print any photo you like from my site.

Non-commercial Web use of photos or text --

If you have a personal home page or non-commercial Web service, please feel free to use my photos. You do not need to pay for usage, just be sure to include a hyperlinked credit on every page where the photo appears. Something similar to this HTML is acceptable:

That way people know where the photo came from and can find my copyright statement.

Commercial Web use of photos --

If you would like to use my photos on a commercial page, then please do the following:
  1. register the URL with me (sending email is fine -
  2. add the hyperlinked credit as above (on every page where a photo appears)
You do not need to pay for usage but I reserve the right to deny usage on sites that I find objectionable.

Text --

Please feel free to redistribute for noncommercial purposes, via hardcopy or email,  any of my writings.  Please attribute the source in such a way that someone can find the most up-to-date version on the Web.

Please do not copy any of my text to a public Web server. Link to my pages instead. I will not break any of your links. The problem with putting a page on your server is that the search engines will find it and send my readers to your server instead. Thus they will be deprived of my latest content.
