Little help from far away, thanks to Creative Commons and Daruma

A few weeks ago a Flickr user dropped me a piece of Flickr mail asking if she could use one of my photos. Hi there, I’m helping with a fund raising bake sale for victims of the recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan. I was looking for a daruma image to use for the packaging […]

Follow-ups, Notes, And Updates

In no particular order: The MetaFilter community continues to amaze me. After getting some much appreciated help from Extraface readers but no resolution, I threw the Jazz Cap question out to Though I still haven’t found a photo, I got back several solid recollections, a few of which came in within an hour.
