It’s All in a Name

In an earlier post, I talk about naming photos and coming up with new and creative names. Well, in April when KI and I went to the Library of Congress to register over 200 photos with Copyright, all those creative names weren’t so great anymore. See, KI typed all those names into the registration. As the writer in the family, she’s also the typist(100 or so words a minute).

I would have had to ask the Library to stay open late to finish while it took KI an hour to do that.


Now while it only took an hour, I heard about it for the next couple of days. KI’s solution was to have one word titles so she would have to type less. I did not really like that solution because in reality, it would make me have to be even more creative. How many one word titles could I get for a sunrise? Sunrise, light, glow? Yukk! I sort of came up with a compromise.

Well not really… I did decide to begin creating series of photos. This “compromise” is a new way of grouping and introducing my photos to all of you. It really has little to do with photo titles except I do not have to be as creative with the names.

There are some issues with this new concept. My purchase site does not take characters or numbers in the titles so I have to put the series number in the description.

More importantly it has not resolved the typing issue for next year when KI and I register a new crop of photos. So I am still trying to figure out that resolution.

Oysters Anyone

Register less photos, hire a typist, lavish KI with gifts and alcohol? All are possibilities.


A few weeks ago I introduced you in “Hooked on Birds” to my first “official” series-the Snowy Egret. Today you are viewing two more series. Please let me know what you think.

Also if you have any suggestions to my photo naming dilemma, they sure would be welcome.

Take a look at “Recent Photos” too as I am always updating those.


For now, enjoy!


And as always thank you for supporting my work.

Oh, and BTW, KI will be blogging on July 4 at the BSB Authors Blog . It’s her annual Independence Day blog. Check it out.  She never disappoints.

    I think gifts to KI are the way to go. 😉 Can you only register 1x/year? Maybe doing semi-annual registration would keep the typing burden more manageable at any given time… The photos are gorgeous, btw.


    • SA:
      All good ideas. Each time you register there is a fee. This was the first time. We will be registering photos about every 6 months. I think gifts to KI are the way to go too. But she likes big and expensive ones!

      Thanks for your kind words on my photos!
