my blog post from 2011 and proceeded to use my image in one of their store displays. I have since contacted this store seeking compensation for the illegal use of my photo, but have (to little surprise) not heard back. So, please, if you are a photographer or artist be careful about how you post and what you post on the internet. If it can happen to me then it can happen to anyone and it might just be a matter of time. And if you live in the LA area, drop by El Palacio de Oro y Diamantes at 718 1/2 S. Broadway to see a free exhibition of my photo work and tell them that Mark Pariani sent you. Thanks for reading and stay alert about your internet posting. And be a pal and don't support photo theft - Keep it REAL.
