This blog has went through many themes. The original name of this blog was “Inspirational Photography”, a term I used, not as a way of making this blog sound as coming from a professional photographer as i am a political activist like yourselves, that uses images and the pen to try to inspire others, a gorilla activist so to speak. “Inspirational Photography” is therefore basically as it say’s, photography of social events that are meant to inspire you to get up off your backside and do something positive yourself to help yourself your community, the environment.

I have, as you have seen, changed my blog title to “A Time for Action”. This decision wasn’t taken lightly and was due to people using my blog title as a purchased title for their own websites. This was a hindrance for anyone that searched for my blog. Anyway, it was changed to a “Time for Action”, taking protest to the next level. I had also linked my blog to my Flikr and Twitter accounts.

I have now changed my blog to “Animal Rights”. And separating my photography, which can be seen on my Flikr and Instagram accounts.
I will mostly be posting animal rights and environment stuff on here from now on.

It is easy to find reasons why nothing will ever change for the better. And, if we listened only to the insistent voices of skeptics, they would no doubt be proven right; after all, if no-one presses for change, change is unlikely to happen on its own. Small acts of resistance within every community can make a difference. And those who believe in change have helped change the world – again and again. Therefore you too can make a difference.

    Love it. And you are right – we all need to do something and that is how we can get other people to join us! LSx

    Very simply put, converting the basis of our societies from competition to cooperation is probably the only thing that can save the human species from imminent extinction.

    A very rational, logical and completely attainable goal that could transform Life on Earth in ways most positive.

    As long as capitalism exists, this will never be permitted.

    Buy or Die

    Just remember, if we keep buying, just because we can, we still die. And if we continue pretending we can go on buying and growing and consuming without limits forever; we all die, sooner rather than later.

    Hi! Thanks for re-blogging me. I appreciate the exposure and that you thought my article interesting enough to re-post. I would be interested in the focus of your own blog, however, since I’ve seen so much in the blog in support of animal rights which is not something my article supported. You even have links to most of the Animal Rights groups that I vehemently oppose in your blogroll. I am just curious as to why you’d re-blog my post that doesn’t seem to support your own views. Thanks!

      Hi, there. Yes, as you have seen, I am very much in favour of animal rights but I am also open to other ideas and points of view. I do not force any of my views and hope others look at situations themselves and make up their own minds.
      I am also vegan but my wife and kids are not. Everyone has the ability to make judgements on their own. They can only make good judgement by listening to all view points. Hope that answers your question.

      • January 7, 2013 at 17:52

        That is very fair and thoughtful of you. I love animals deeply and want them all to have good lives as much as can be. I appreciate you putting it out there that there are other views. Thank you very much.

        no problem. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Whether you like it or not.

    Thank you for re-posting my blog. Our situation is similar in that I am a vegan but my husband and son are not. I chose the vegetarian route because of health reason. But, after reading Kathy Freston’s book, Veganist, and watching Glass Walls by Sir Paul McCartney, I remain a vegan as a way to demonstrate my opposition to the dairy, meat, fish, and poultry industry.

      Hi thanks for the input. Hope others would look at the global food situation and do the same. Not just to help animals, but fo their own health.

    Thanks for the re-blog and directing me to your great blog. There is so much going on at the moment to do with forestry and animals. Everywhere you turn some species is under threat. It is heartening to see that there are so many people being a voice for them. Tough times but hey we will give it all we have. It is our planet, our birthright.

    This morning, I was wondering, if it was completely hopeless, how poorly some people in this world treat animals. Thanks for sending the message that the good fight apparently still has many days in its future. 🙂

    • December 5, 2013 at 15:32

      If we all pull together we can win this battle.
