Submitted photos need IDs
June 25, 2013 - Jim Smith
We need your help. I've probably spoken or written this hundreds of times to people calling in to the newspaper or sending messages to the newsroom, but for the record here it is again: When you send us a photograph, you MUST identify those in the image.
Just sending us a photo of a group of people looking into the camera lens will not result in the image being published if you do not identify those in the image, preferable from left to right. And sending us an image of people passing a check will also not result in it being published.
It always amazes me that someone will go to the effort of taking a photo and then sending it to us without listing who's in the image. If it isn't important enough to identify those in the photo, why would it be important enough to publish?
Simply put, if an image contains people and there are no identifications, the photo will not be published. So help us out in getting the image in the newspaper by providing identification for those in the image.
On a side note, I spend last weekend chasing a pair of 20-month-old twin grandsons all over their house and around the tot lot. I now know what tired means!
My wife had been with them for a week while our son-in-law was at an out-of-state conference, our daughter was working and a new nanny had started looking after the boys. My wife also now knows when the word "tired" means!
I had forgotten had energy-packed, non-stop a couple of 20-month-olds could be. They are in to everything all the time and need to be constantly watched and never let more than arm's length away. There is no wonder our daughter and her husband go to bed by 9 p.m. every night ... while visiting, we did too.
I'm glad my wife and I didn't have twins, I'd have been old by the time I was 35!
