LAST WEEK, we were given copies of the local daily that bore the news that my hometown, Alabel, Sarangani Province is applying to become a city.
I was struck by the stark resemblance of one of the photos in the frontpage to a photo I once posted here. I suspect that the staff of Brigada News surfed the web for photos and came across my post on Ladol Beach.
As seen in the newspaper, there was deliberate attempt by the layout artist to remove the large watermark I put on the picture. There is a darkened portion on the spot where the watermark was placed. Take a look at the pictures below that serve as proofs of it:

The Photo in Question: Compare
I have no qualms about my photo being posted in the newspaper. In fact, I am happy that they consider my picture worthy on the space. But I would have been happier if I was properly acknowledged, or at least, if they left comment on this blog, which would have taken only a few seconds of their time. 😀
