Do What You Can, When You Can, Where You Are, With What You Have

I don't have a big yard anymore. And I don't have a big garden anymore. But I do grow a lot of stuff in a very small space. I think I do pretty good with it. I work it year round, but more so in the spring. On Sunday's, I usually sift a little soil from a compost pile. That's what the picture is. I made this contraption about three years ago. I call it my Shamgar Soil Sifter.

Is Really A Free Image Site?

What's the historical significance of this window? doesn't have as many images on it as some of the other Free Image sites. If I had to guess, I'd say there are less than 200 photos. Looking at the site gives you the illusion that there are more. But there isn't. And that's not a bad thing. Because it has a uniqueness to it that's difficult to put your finger on. Until you read the 'About' page..

Death To The Stock Photo - Free Image Site

Free Image Site Review - Death To The Stock Photo

I have to admit that I almost gave up on this site. The only reason I stuck it out was because I had read so many good things about it. I simply couldn't navigate it. I couldn't find any of the free images. You can find the site here :  . The photo above is from the site, but I only found it AFTER I started my review.

Unsplash Free Images Site Review

Review of Free Image Site UnSplash

This is the fifth review of sites with Free Images, in as many days. The image above came from there. Here is a link to the photographer Caitlin Wynne's website.  Today was particularly tough one. The site that I am reviewing is called UnSplash. It's been around for a while. They are held in high regard by everyone in the industry. Their reputation is impeccable. But I have a problem with, and I want to give you fair warning.

This Plasma Ball is from PICJumbo images. is the fourth in this series of Free Image Site Reviews. The way I decided to review it speaks volumes of the site. I was looking for an image for the website. I was looking for an image for my 'What's Free What's Not' page. After looking through at least 7 other sites, I made a decision. The first site I found that had an image I thought I could use, I would review.I finally found one here.
