4th at Water St., Looking North (see more)

* Wednesday's Post uses the plight of the Positive Nature youth program to look at how all the remaining small businesses near the ballpark are having a tough time dealing with their skyrocketing tax assessments. The cab company moving next week mentioned in the article is Merritt Cab at First and K, where DRI is planning its 800,000-sq-ft office and retail project. There's also an accompanying video on Positive Nature; and it's interesting to note that Positive Nature arrived in the neighborhood in 2004, so it's not a long-standing business the way the Market Deli is, whose owner is now on the hook for $50,000 a year in property taxes.
* There's also a story that looks back at the openings of DC sports venues through the years, with highlights such as the Capital Centre getting its final inspection approvals just a few hours before the first Bullets game and the 15-mile backup on the Beltway that greeted the first game at FedEx Field.
* The Post's special section on the 2008 baseball season is also in Wednesday's paper, with plenty of mentions of the new ballpark, like these from Tom Boswell and Dave Sheinin.
Other ballpark stories from Tuesday (keeping in mind that for now I'm just pointing out pieces that have some slightly different angle from the eight billion other pieces):
* Bruce Johnson of WUSA blogs about the police presence planned for the ballpark, but I was unable to focus on the content after being greeted by my own photo from Saturday's GW game right at the top of his entry. Glad to know you're a reader, Bruce! Tell your readers and viewers about my site sometime!
* WTOP continues its ballpark-story-a-day regimen with word (and video!) that, while some of the new temporary surface lots *look* like they're dirt, they're actually a "mixture of compact concrete and other elements that help with drainage."

Wow - Bruce (or the intern who ghostwrites his blog) didn't make any attempt whatsoever to cover his tracks: the name of the photo is the exact same as yours, outside of the normal Blogger file information. Have you contacted him in any way in order to get some credit for your work? I think your faithful readers could post some comments on his blog to alert him to his own malfeasance, if necessary...

I know it's too late in the ballgame, but from now on maybe you should watermark your photos?

the lack of inegrity other media exhibit by not crediting your work (images) is shameful but not surprising. it's much easier to rip it from someone else who did the work than to do some actual reporting. i asked and received permission to use a prominent image of yours and properly credited you. i was surprised, or guess i should not have been, at the number of people that saw the image and immediately knew it was yours only much larger! we at the ballpark appreciate your work ;)

that is just crazy and so wrong! i noticed the comments section is moderated -- wonder if he'll allow any comments on the photo to be posted.

It looks like the blog has been updated with a credit to JDLand.com for the photo. Better late than never, I guess...
