Flickr and Creative Commons

If you have been reading or Googling me, you may know that photography is a hobby of mine.  I'm not particularly interested in making money off of it, as I have a day job that pays the mortgage and consumes most of my time.  That being said, I've been on Flickr since 2006 and have put my public photos online with a Creative Commons license.  What does that mean?  My photos, with permission, end up being used in a significant amount of web content. There are rules to usage and you can look them up from the link provided if you'd like, but overall my images have been used in context and in tasteful ways. 

My wife often asks me "why do you take so many pictures of random things?".  This is why.  Who else is going to create random pictures of breast pump bottles arranged in a smiley face?  Who is going to take high resolution pictures of local artisanal beer cans?   Who is going to take pictures of electrical boxes that are painted with colorful murals?  That answer to all of these questions is: Me.  

A simple Google image search will show you all the images or articles with some of my images that are used.  I can't vouch for the content of each of them, but I'm happy that my seemingly random images find use.  https://www.google.com/search?q=aaron_anderer&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwifmZiWu9rmAhXKuZ4KHWB9Cg8Q_AUoA3oECAsQBQ&biw=1280&bih=910#imgrc=_
