The Sound of Freedom

The day after Independence day seems like the best day to recant this little tidbit of information regarding the fastest man made jet in the world.  Can you imagine, flying over heads of state at Mach 3, and then hopefully going to do some reconnaissance work in the area, just to prove the point that “America is here.”

European Photographic Freedom

Europe is potentially about to get alot more photographer unfriendly.  On July 09, 2015 the E.U. Parliament will vote on an amendment to copyright as it applies to publicly view able buildings and art work, more commonly called Freedom of Panorama.  The proposed law change would make photographing any public building, monument, or artwork and using those photos in a commercial application illegal, and the owners could sue for damages.  Just what those damages are is questionable, but it’s yet another thorn in the side of the continent of Europe that makes it less appealing to the freedom loving American that I am.

I don’t know what, if anything us Americans can do about this, but hopefully, some smarter minds will prevail because even without the freedom loving American thoughts that I have, it should be pretty apparent that this is a horrible idea.
