When I say "Photo courtesy of" it means...

Photo courtesy of

When I need an image for this blog, or the other websites and blogs I support, or to use a picture instead of a thousand words in a PowerPoint deck, the first place I check is, a source for thousands of high quality photographs.  The site is run by Sam Mugraby, an Israeli photographer and graphic artist who offers his fine work for free (with a liberal license) at or in the public domain at  As you might imagine many of his photographs have an eastern Mediterranean sensibility but a great many could have been taken anywhere.  Next time you need a fresh image to make your point give a try.

Got a note from Sam in response to this post.  He appreciates hearing from people who use his work.  He seems like a nice guy.
