Visual myths and bad edits

“As you can imagined I am in a state of shock. I feel ashamed and humiliated for trusting CNN. I am stunned that they would take my work out of context. I spent a long time looking at their website before agreeing to show my work and in no way did I see any indication that they were subverting photographers work to lead to controversy that would provide greater visibility of their site.┬áStill, I take responsibility for not knowing better.”

    • John,

      I finally make it on Duckrabbit and…my blog is incorrectly attributed to Jim Merithew. But Jim’s awesome, so I’m sort of OK with that! Thanks for the kind words about the blog.

      Cheers,

      Roger

      • Oh bugger! A hasty dash out this morning with small boy and I did not do as thorough a job posting as I should have.

        Mea culpa. And ahh the irony!

        Please accept my apologies Roger.

    • Hey Roger, apologies on behalf of the duck. That was our own visual myth and bad editing, but thanks for being cool.

    • Thanks David for being quick and cool too!
