So the winner will receive a $5 [...]
I received a Flickr Mail from a NowPublic member asking if they could use a photo of mine in an article about National Chocolate Chip Day. The article itself isn’t really an article at all, just a summary of another article. Geek that I am, a link is a link and the photo doesn’t mean [...]
