A Recap of Images 12/26/2014

I know that the way this site is set up sometimes makes it a bit difficult to find some of the images that are stored here, and so to help to make navigation a little bit easier, I have decided to from time to time post a recap of some of the more relevant images that are here that you may find useful in your blogs and hubs, Bubblews articles, Elitevisitors articles, or elsewhere on the Net including right here on BlogSpot. All of the images that you will find here are photos I have taken, and decided to share in this forum. Springboard Images. Here are some I want to highlight today. As for the rules regarding these? Just like you would do for Morguefile, or Pixabay photos, even if you cannot provide a direct link back to this site, simply putting Photo credit: Springboard Images is fine with me. It's not about making money when it comes to these photos. It's about sharing and having fun seeing some of my pictures making their way across the Internet on blogs and other writing sites.

Busch In The Box

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
Here is a simple photo I took in my refrigerator in the garage of some Busch beer cans. Feel free to crop or modify this image to whatever suits your needs and use it for posts on Bubblews, Elitevisitors, HubPages, WebAnswers, or wherever else you feel this photo can be of use to you. My only ask is that you provide an image credit to Springboard Images. I don't even care if you don't provide a link. Just say where you got it like you would Morguefile or Pixabay and I will be happy with that. These photos are just something I like to do for fun and share. I intend to make no profit from them. But I do like to provide other photos that you can use for your purposes that you may not be able to find elsewhere.
Most of all, Merry Christmas Eve, and thanks for stopping by and being part of Springboard Images. The rule I have laid out here applies to all of the photos you will find on this blog.

Schlafly Bottleworks

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
Snapped a photo of the Schlafly Bottleworks brewery and restaurant in St. Louis, MO before poppin inside for dinner. Had a Dark IPA and an Oatmeal Stout with my meal of sausage and sauerkraut. All was very delicious and well worth the visit. Of course, I had family with me as well, so that made it nice as well. Out with dad and his wife, and my sister, brother-in-law, and two of my younger nephews. The meal was reasonably priced. My only complaint was that the service was a bit slow and unattentive, but you can't win them all I suppose. I will definitely be back to their restaurant in future.
Feel free to use this image if you see fit to. Just please provide a link back to this site and of course provide proper image credit.

Beer Can Chicken Stands Ready

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
I shot this photo of a beer can chicken just before I put her on the grill and thought I would share it here. You never know when you may need a photo of a seasoned, propped up beer can chicken to make a blog post or some other post go well. By the way, the chicken turned out to be moist, juicy, and delicious. I have never been dissatisfied with the flavor and tenderness of a beer can chicken.
The rules are as they always are here. Feel free to use the images you find here. Just be sure to provide the copyright information and even provide a link back to this site. I appreciate sharing, and want to continue to do this in future.

Beautiful Ford

Just a photo that I took of the grill of our 2010 Ford Edge SEL using sepia tone. I liked the way it turned out, and of course this can be used to talk about any Ford product, or any opinion on Fords, the Ford Motor Company, or anything else auto for that matter.
The rules are the same as always. All of the photos you find here are free to use as you wish. Just make sure to acknowledge the copyright information and if possible provide a link back to this site.

Pool Water

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
As the wife and I just recently moved to southern Illinois from the tundra of Wisconsin, we are still having to acclimate to the climbing temperatures. Incidentally our new house has a pool, and this is a shot I took of the water. I think this could be used for a multitude of applications. In fact, I am currently using it as my wallpaper on my Smart Phone.
Feel free to use any of the images you find here in your blogs, bubbles, hubs, or other applications where you see fitting. Just remember to note the copyright information, and whenever possible, provide a link back to this site.

A Damp Place

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
This photo was taken in the basement of a church I conducted pest control services for. In fact, I noted that several of the churches I did services for in the city I worked in had similar areas beneath the church. One of those places that pest control providers get to go to find the vermin and bugs.
This photo can be used for a multitude of purposes. As are all of the images on these pages, this one is free to use. All that is asked is that copyright information be displayed when using this image, and please (if possible) try and provide a link back to this site.

Flat On Trailer

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
Sometimes when life tosses you lemons, you have to resort to making lemonade, or as the old story goes. This was a flat my wife and I encountered on a trip moving to Illinois with an 8-foot trailer 25 miles before our final destination. Luckily we were able to secure the services of a towing company who came out and took care of our tire for a mere $75. Problem solved.
In the event I took this photo.
Of course, this photo can be used for a multitude of purposes. As is the rule with all of the pictures posted on this site, you may use the photo for your own purposes. Simply acknowledge the copyright information and when possible please provide a link back to this site.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are enjoying using this site.

Cereal In Toilet

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
This is a photo that was taken in one of my school accounts where the establishment has seen fit to dump cereal into the toilets from 5-gallon collection buckets they use in the classroom to dispose of the uneaten cereal they feed to the students. Of course this is a bad idea, and the school in question has developed roaches as a result.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you find some of the images I post here to be useful in your bubbles, blogs, or other Internet postings. 

Just Chillin'

Copyright © 2014 by Jim Bauer
Working in the pest management industry and being a licensed trapper to boot, you get to encounter quite a lot of interesting things. And over the years I have taken many pictures that I think may be of use for a variety of purposes, be they training in the pest management industry, advertising and marketing materials, or just plain writing about your own encounters. So I decided to begin to share some of those photos I've taken here on the Images site.
As is the rule for all of the photos I post here, they are free for use. Just provide the copyright information, please, and perhaps provide a link back to Springboard Images.

Bubblews Photographers

I thought I would just take a moment to call out on the many fantastic photographers that show up on the website—and by the way, this is a great site you ought to check out in any event if you've never been there. We (the Bubblers) are always in search of great, free images to use for our posts. I post my own photos here and use them often on my own posts at Bubblews. Of course, backlinks are always a good deal for us as well as it helps us to rank a little higher in the search engines like Bing and Google.

So, if you want to post your photos here it is a really simple process. Send the photo to and insert "Bubblews Photos" into the subject line so I can easily find it. Of course, make sure you attach the photo and above all else, please make sure it is yours before you send it my way. As well, provide a link to your profile page. I will be happy to post your photo on these pages, and make a link back to you directly. Also tell me the year of the copyright.

Of course, all of the images used here are free to use regardless of their source. All you need to do to use any of them is to provide a link back to this site and PLEASE also provide copyright information giving credit to the original photographer.

Some pictures that have appeared here from other Bubblers so far?

No Way To The Door

Copyright © 2011 by Jim Bauer
No doubt winter this year has really stunk. No two ways about it. Granted, this little picture was taken back in February of 2011 when we had that major blizzard blow through town. But even that year, despite the big dump, it still wasn't nearly as harsh nor nearly as cold as it has been this year. What with polar vortexes and arctic fronts? Yeesh! This is really beginning to get rather old, and the weather has been crappy since back in October.
Oh well. One more day closer to warm sunshine and the cool breezes of summer. Cool, but not cold.
This image is free to use as you wish on a blog, in a bubble, or wherever else you may see fit. All I ask is a simple link back to this site, and noted copyright information. That's it.

Talking Like A True Pinnochio

Copyright © 2013 by Jim Bauer
In truth I should be completely embarrassed to even share this little depiction here of a liar. I was writing a post on BubbleWs about politicians, "If Politicians Were More Like Pinnochio," and I just could not find any free stock photos that quite fit the bill.
So I sat down and drew this guy, which is no doubt a crude picture to say the least, but may still have some use in something you wish to use it for.
Do you like the way I left the nose open? Sort of to indicate a liar is perpetual, never ending, always in action, and so the nose never truly reaches an end.
This image is free for use as are all of the images you will find here. All I ask is that you provide a link back to this site, and of course give credit where credit is due (that means simply denote the copyright information).
