J. Kurtz and Sons Store Building[edit]

Just a note, the image posted for the J. Kurtz and Sons Store Building is not the correct building. The building pictured (with applebee's in the base) is across the street. the attached image is the correct building.

Thank you, @Rumandoldspice:. I have already repaired some of the errors that my misidentification caused. Jim.henderson (talk) 18:31, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

photo permission[edit]

Hi Jim,

I'm interested in acquiring permission to use one of your photos. It is for a book that includes a section highlighting the work of Heidi Neumark during her time at Transfiguration Lutheran Church. The specific photo that I'm interested is this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heidi_Neumark#/media/File:763_Prospect_Av_Transfiguration_Lutheran_jeh.jpg Would you be open to a conversation about this possibility?

Thanks,

Jon

You already have my permission, @Jonheinly: If you click on "Details" you will get to File:763 Prospect Av Transfiguration Lutheran jeh.jpg which has a CC0 notice. This means anyone anywhere can use this photo for anything without asking further permission, without payment, and without credit. If you do wish to credit me, it should say, "jim.henderson via Wikipedia". Perhaps you would like to upload a picture of the subject pastor, releasing it as I released mine. Jim.henderson (talk) 21:16, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks!

Using one of your images for a book cover[edit]

Hey Jim:

I love this shot: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/174th_Street_(IRT_White_Plains_Road_Line)#/media/File:174_IRT_sta_jeh.JPG

I'm interested in using it for the cover of an upcoming poetry collection. Would you happen to have a larger image of this pic available? If you're amenable, it would have to be a size suitable to reflect good resolution on a 6 x 9 inch-sized cover. Feel free to contact me at truth@cherrycastlepublishing.com with your response.

The honor in using the shot would,of course, be mine. All appropriate photo credits would be listed, and we would happily send you a copy of the book when it's published.

Best,

Demolition for 1 Vanderbilt at 43 & Vanderbilt[edit]

w:Mount Morris Bank Building[edit]

Great picture! I was hoping you'd do it, and you did! Vzeebjtf (talk) 17:18, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I thought of this target on my way to Port Morris and thought, oh, this can't wait to winter when the southing of the Sun will shade much of the facade all day. Parking the bike, I noticed that the opposite buildings were low enough to keep it in sunlight, but what the heck, it's a good time. Maybe one day I'll return from Westchester on a train and get off in Harlem on the western platform for a high shot. Or just climb the station stair. Jim.henderson (talk) 18:42, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
You may know that a very tall building is going up on the south side; good you got the shot in time! As for the platform, it's between the tracks, so I don't think that would work. Vzeebjtf (talk) 22:19, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Re: Cat and cop[edit]

Thanks for your comment on my arrest by the licensing police. My first thought was "what, it's a public monument!" But I get it. You say that it is "rarely possible" to find the owner of a recent copyright on public art? Then these just don't get into Wikimedia? Or is there any workaround? You say "we have millions of pictures with much worse categorization." How would I find these photographs to help with the categorization of them? Also, I am glad to hear from a fellow human editor. I have posted comments a couple of places regarding categorization, and haven't received any replies. Do you feel like taking a look and replying? I posted at: Category talk:Visitor attractions in the United States, Category talk:Visitor attractions, (and) Category talk:Museums in the United States. Thanks again for the feedback! Drbones1950 (talk) 16:03, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Slightly busy this evening, @Drbones1950: so I'll just address the licensing question for the moment. Sometimes a fellow Wikimedian thinks the subject important enough to do research for which I lack patience. That's how the King Jagiello Monument got in. Polish interwar copyright law, Italian fascist copyright law, American law both under Buenos Aires Convention and Berne Convention and a few other items were carefully compared. Also en:File:Rockefeller Center statue side view.jpg which was only US law but had other complications. I've never heard of a case where one of us snapped a picture and then sought, found and persuaded the person with the rights, though it probably has happened. Incidentally, we do everything better if we put each other's userpages on watchlist and butt into their discussions when we have something useful to say. As in Wikipedia there are topical Projects for places, etc but they are far less successful than in WP. Probably because we have far fewer active editors. Jim.henderson (talk) 22:16, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Uncategorized pictures are plentiful, @Drbones1950: and many occur in big bunches. The richest lodes are the daily uncategories, for example Category:Media needing categories as of 1 May 2015. I don't work these very much because, being completely uncategorized, they take more thought and offer fewer items of interest to me. I get more from Category:1913 books and the like, because they already group similar but poorly organized items. City cats like Category:Buildings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania are similarly rich. Usually, if we start somewhere in the category system that we know, and work our way up and down and across, we find many items that have much work to be done.

Bayonne Bridge redecking[edit]

Thanks for your past images of the Bayonne Bridge redecking project. Are you in a position to take more current shots while the bridge for the moment has two decks? The PA web site has lots of such images by they don't seem to offer a free license.--agr (talk) 13:18, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, it's not like MTA who fully release the bountiful works of their staff photographer, Patrick Cashin. I've been busy the past month, partly with Wikipedia things like coaching at Museum of Modern Art en:Wikipedia:Meetup/WikiArte/MoMA 2016 tomorrow) handling pictures from the OHNY photo contest, after spending a week in San Diego. I am unsure of finding time to bike out to Kill Van Kull, one side or the other, before further big transformations. Life is full of hard choices, when there's so much fun to be had in the city.

Use of your photograph in New York at Its Core exhibition[edit]

Dear Jim,

I am pleased to say that we are using one your photographs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/65th_Street_Yard#/media/File:Nychr5bbtjeh.jpg) in the New York at Its Core exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York, as per the Creative Commons license it was uploaded under. You will find it on an ipad in the third gallery (Future City Lab) in a section about developing new ways to get freight into the city. You are of course welcome to visit for free.

Best,

Charlie Morgan, Curatorial Assistant, Museum of the City of New York

Thank you. I, too, am pleased and might get a chance to visit the exhibition before it's finished. Jim.henderson (talk) 15:29, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi, are you a raifan too?[edit]

I've made such an impression, since you've made lots of photos pertaining to subway, and other railroads within NYC. GK tramrunner RU (talk) 03:12, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

More a fan of civil engineering, but yes. Indeed, two hours ago at a meeting on 14th Street of astronomy buffs who are also railfans (New York has a club for everything) I learned that the Nostalgia Train will be running on the 6th Avenue Line Sundays in December. I haven't ridden subways very much since getting my Citibike key, but might get a chance at this. Also tomorrow I'll return to 14th Street for the Wikimedia hackathon. Busy, busy. Jim.henderson (talk) 03:28, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

Are you visiting Hack Manhattan?[edit]

I've been there a few times, and even used their 3D printer. I know about Nostalgia Train, maybe I will come to ride it this year. As of civil engineering I am a fan of architecture. GK tramrunner RU (talk) 14:09, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Dates on NYPL Detroit Publishing postcards.[edit]

Hi, this just popped up on my radar, and the date seemed early to me. Looking at the source archive page, the "1898" in the date field of the file description appears to have been haphazardly scraped from a blanket "1898-1931" probably applied to the whole collection. Just thought I'd point it out for future reference... --Junkyardsparkle (talk) 02:43, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Locator-tool[edit]

New picture; new location

Hi Jim! As discussed at lunch today, here's the link to the documentation on the locator tool: Commons:Locator-tool. Best, Braveheart (talk) 17:00, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

Thank you kindly, Philip @Braveheart:; I was lucky to sit by you at lunch. Being of an age of slow learning, I used your tool to code only one picture. My many failures were not at all the fault of the interface. Working in familiar geography will make it much more efficient than my old ways. Oh, is there a way to configure to open untagged photos in a familiar place, rather than London, which is far from my home and my photos? Jim.henderson (talk) 01:03, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
@Simon04: Maybe that's a question you're able to answer? Braveheart (talk) 19:16, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
I complained before getting enough experience . It opens on the last seen location, which is usually the best guess. Perhaps this uses a cookie. I tagged several Montreal pictures, and a few New York City ones. Jumping that distance is less tedious than crossing an ocean, and usually I don't even have to cross a river.

Pardon, but are you suggesting that bothering to complain that I no longer have a functioning watchlist is a "tantrum"?

Sorry, @Infrogmation:; I made the mistake of using only one paragraph for two different complainants. The one relying on foolishly and unproductively intemperate language wasn't you. I do hope you can ameliorate the impact of the watch limit bug by one method or another, pending repair. My friend @Pharos: had it even worse.

Bonaventure station picture renaming[edit]

Hi Jim,

Just a quick notice that I requested one of your pictures for renaming. You might have been a bit confused indeed because this is the Lucien-L'Allier metro station, not the Bonaventure station as you first mentioned in the title (it's true that both stations are close to each other though!). The station sign is not that easy to read in the picture, but you can have a look at the location data that point right to the Lucien-L'Allier station.

I hope you're okay with the renaming. Thank you.

Photo of antique washing machine in Kentucky ... Maytag page[edit]

Question of identity

Dear Jim,

I submitted a suggestion for deletion, as there is an error in labeling on the part of the museum (according to the geo coordinates, it is the museum in Madisonville, KY.) As a Maytag historian, I can verify that the machine pictured is absolutely NOT a Maytag artifact. The first Maytag machine was the "Pastime", produced in 1907, and looked nothing like that in the photo.

If you have a contact at the Hopkins County Historical Society in Madisonville, perhaps you would be so kind as to advise them, and agree to the deletion of the said photograph.

Regards,

Brad Ross

Thanks @Bradross63: I know nobody at the museum; was just killing time before the Total Eclipse later in the week. Errors in labels are not normally grounds for deleting a file and I do not intend to do that. Rather, such errors are grounds for correcting the description and sometimes the filename. Technically I could say I have no evidence that you know what you're talking about, resist stubbornly, and keep the filename and description on grounds that we have documentary evidence it is Maytag. That is not my plan, however, as I do not put great faith in the Museum's label. Instead I intend to change the description and rename the file. I shall also remove it from the en:Maytag article. Is that a good compromise? Jim.henderson (talk) 01:50, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Right general, wrong battle[edit]

Dear Jim, if you have an illuminating information regarding File:Makers of the world's history and their grand achievements (1903) (14596104027).jpg that might correct the NYPL, please share it on that file's discussion page. With kind regards, --Taterian (talk) 05:03, 17 April 2018 (UTC)

Drat, you're right @Taterian: Our Civil War categorizing is not among the best in Commons, and a couple other pictures misidentified other Pickett charges as being the famous one at Gettysburg. Correcting them, I went 'way too far and misidentified this one the other way. Thank you for your kind understanding; I must be more cautious in future. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:02, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Don't even mention it! It was a pleasure to get acquainted with you and I already plan to draw on your unquestionable knowledge while dealing with the Civil War files and categories which are as you so rightly pointed out, "not among the best in Commons," which is very regrettable. And the NYPL itself sometimes makes mistakes as you can see here, Category:Samuel Blachley Webb. Last but not least, the Generalsandbrevets.com is now perfectly accessible and navigable through the Internet Archive at The Generals of the American Civil War and The Brevet-Generals of the American Civil War. I use these both sites a lot recently since all files without proper sourcing are getting deleted within seven days after nomination regardless of their usage in wikis.

Could be worse, @Taterian: at least it ain't the USMC. Civil War is not a specialty for me, as it seems to be for you, so I seldom go very deep there. I do a lot of diffusing of old books, digging out pictures like the one you spotted me mishandling. My deeper dives are into my dear home town and its suburbs, where many new pictures are my own. Anyway it's pleasant when going to WM / WP meetups to identify myself as not just a Wikiphotographer but a "cat wrangler", or when meeting library and museum people, as a "Wikimedia curator".

Who is this person[edit]

Hi. Who is this person? Is it not better to add his name as a new cat, just like all the other people in the same book? Regards. --E4024 (talk) 08:46, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

✓ Done Usually if we have only one or two pictures of a subject, I make no category, thus saving time which can go to handling more old pictures in more old books. However, if another user such as you, @E4024: is confused by that practice, I can make an exception such as Category:Thomas Johnson (Kansas politician). Jim.henderson (talk) 16:35, 17 May 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. BTW I was not confused of anything, Mr Henderson. It just looked weird to me to see all those irrelevant cats under a pic from a book on Abraham Lincoln. Regards. --E4024 (talk) 06:11, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Glaser's Bakery[edit]

We need some pictures of Glaser's Bakery[1] before they close on July 1. Could you manage it? I also asked User:Beyond My Ken Thank you. --Fridolin freudenfett (talk) 10:17, 25 June 2018 (UTC)

Re: Category:Anticrepuscular rays[edit]

I am not sure what you are asking.--Kai3952 (talk) 12:57, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Please make your question clearer.--Kai3952 (talk) 14:03, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
I think it would be nice to get a "consensus" from more people.--Kai3952 (talk) 15:50, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

My biggest mistake is to be nosy! I will not help any file and category in the future other than my editing work. If you have any questions, please ask at the help desk.--Kai3952 (talk) 16:08, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
