Flickr won't use your photos outside their domain, but others might. If you put them up on a public site, you never know where they might turn up.

I've had a "pro" account on Flickr for some time and this gives you access to some interesting stats, one of which is the referrers to your pictures. I often see mine showing up in Google and Bing image searches. Recently found a Mexican travel site that was using a boatload of my vacation images from a recent trip to Cancun.

I'm kinda flattered, to tell the truth. I'm not a pro by any stretch of the imagination and don't have a lot of ego riding on this. If someone else enjoys my images... well, that's kind of why I took them. Enjoy!

Haven't seen one on a billboard yet and doubt I ever will.
