Flickr accounts as free porn collections

I got a notification today that one of my photos on Flickr had been added as a favorite in someone’s collection.

When I went to view the photo, it was an erotic photo that I shot for a friend a few years ago. I had it on Flickr for storage purposes and it was public, with the client’s permission.

So I went to the person’s profile and it was not filled out. I then went to view the person’s photostream. Nothing. Then I went to his (definitely HIS) favorites section and was kind of surprised (although I shouldn’t have been) to see that all of the photos marked as favorites added up to a pretty decent porn collection. It was a total whack page.

I was pissed. I then went to look at every other person who had added that shot as a favorite and wouldn’t you know, they were all people with no online profile or photos of their own, just erotic-themed favorite photo albums.

It’s a small thing that I did, but I did it. That is my WORK. I got paid for it. That woman didn’t want her image to be saved in some asshole’s collection. So I went into every album I have that had a sexy/erotic/nearly nude touch to it and set all of my permissions to private for friends only. It’s not much, but I will not submit my work for that kind of use, and I won’t submit my friend’s photos, either.

Really smart of people to do this because you can get an account for free, but still creepy and not appreciated.
