In trying to figure out what kind of a picture to post, I came across this amazing smoothie image. You always know when a picture of food is good because it makes you crave whatever is in it. And after looking at this picture, I was ready to whip up a smoothie!

I found this picture on Flickr through the Creative Commons Search Engine. The picture is associated with an attribution restriction. This basically means that I can share the picture, and even edit it to an extent, but I must give appropriate credit to the creator of the image and cite whether I changed the image in any way.

Also, according to the Fair Use Checklist, I can use this image because it is for reasons related to scholarship; basically, it’s okay because this is a school project and not a for-profit enterprise. Related to this point, I can also use this image according to Fair Use because my posting it will have little to no effect on the market for the picture; essentially, my limited audience, which mostly consists of peers in the class, won’t really impact the economic potential of the picture.

Now that I’ve established that I can rightfully use this picture, let’s get to the smoothies! Check out some of my favorite recipes here, here and here!

  4. That is a very appetizing picture and although the picture has an attribution restriction, I think it is a great idea to source media, especially if it is original artwork. Everyone one should get recognition for their work. Also, thanks for the links to the smoothie recipes. I will have to try some.


  5. This reminds me of the most amazing smoothie I had in Florida over spring break. I am normally not a fan but it was morning and so hot that I ordered it. SOOO good! Wish I could go back and have another!


  6. These smoothies look so good! Reading this post is making me want to take out nutribullet and make a smoothie at 1 in the morning – something the people in my house would probably not appreciate. I love your food theme btw! Every time I read our blogs, I am starving lol


  7. These smoothies look awesome! I make the first one all of the time, I add a couple scoops of choc. protein powder and it tastes just like a banana flip!! I like how you brought the class assignment back to your blog by adding the recipes.
