One should note that these photos are credited but may not have copyright permission. If a photo has not been credited accordingly and you know who took it, please let me know to whom it belongs so that I can give them credit for their work. If you are a photographer and see your own work on my page please contact me and I would be happy to take any photos down, credit them accordingly, or work a deal for use in conjunction with each other. I appreciate all of the photographers and videographers that help to bolster my blogs literary material. -Emmett Vick
