Almost all images available on the internet have associated copyrights, costs to download, etc. which means bloggers and writers for websites such as hubgarden/weekendnotes often have to do a bit of search to find the perfect photo to go with their article on sites that provide "no copyright" photos.

Have you found yourself taking photos of random things and places in the hope that you may use those photos in your writing at some point?

Yes! I document most of my photography on Instagram and love capturing elements from my world as regularly as I can!

Yes! I have been a random photo taker for years and my family give me a hard time about it! It sure is handy now that I'm writing though. I usually take photos of my food, kids, free samples or coupons, nature and places I go.
I do, but not as organized as Xarah and enthusiastic as thriftyfrugalfun. I also get in a lot of trouble with my family if I stop to take too many photos, so I do it when I am by myself more often.
I like to take photos of random things, but I haven't done it in years. I think the last random image I took was about five or six years ago. I was in Darling Harbour and took a shot of a couple wearing socks with sandals. Classic.

Yes but never seem to have the time to write as many articles as I'd like. My husband thinks I'm mad taking random photos just in case I need them at some point.
As a professional landscape and nature photographer I only take images that I intend to be able to use professionally, be it for one of my websites, or book covers or magazines that I contribute to, or for my own blog or now for my hub. I used to delete quite a few images, that I am now keeping and using for the hub. Not that they aren't wonderful images, but obviously I save my best images for sale, since I earn my living this way.
Not generally.
Since the advent of digital cameras, it is so easy to take photos, however now that we don't generally get them printed out, I find I do not take as many random ones as I used to.

Holidays are different for me -I take a lot of random ones then, but at home, apart from my animals and grandchildren, no.

Yes, since I started on Weekend Notes and Hub Garden I am much more conscious of building up a library of photos. I find photos I would use for Weekend Notes are different to the holiday snaps I would take for myself.
Now I've an ITablet, I take photo's of beautiful things I see......a beautiful sunset, a flowering tree or plant, or a bubbling brook!

These are for MY enjoyment. They don't 'go' anywhere else. Holds no interest for me whatsoever to do that!
