I was checking some images with Google image search and found this

Does it remind you of anything, e.g. this

I have asked the "gentleman" to remove the image from his page and reported it but do not hold out a lot of hope. One of the trials of being on the internet I suppose!

Just had to let off steam! SadSadSadSadSadSad

Find out where he lives, go round and disassociate him from his testicles.

Personally if he's not making money out of it then I wouldn't worry about it. It's happened before and will happen again with images posted on the internet.

At the bottom of the Flickr page is a report abuse link. Use that, there is nothing moderators like more than deleting bad boys.

Yes, I have reported it - be interested to see what happens! I have since found out that he is on another site I frequent too - might tell a few of my friends there about him!

He even has 'PRO' on his flickr profile ... yet still feels the need to steal an image and pretend he did it ... hmmmm

Wonder how many have been lifted from elsewhere and how many are actually his if any are that is.

I wonder if anyone else will recognise their work? In some ways I am hoping it is just mine - I hate it when any photographer claims another's work as their own Sad Maybe he just liked my image for that particular occasion - let's hope so anyway.

He is on Facebook too and offers the image for download and to share...

Gee, another sad so-and-so who feels the need to show off other people's work as his own?

(By the way, stealing your image is bad enough, but adding text with a linguistic mistake is adding insult to injury! Well, in my book, anyway...)

Bet that's where he got the image from! Bloomin' cheek!
