The now-destroyed mural "Autumn," by David Guinn

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A wonderful surprise to come upon when walking north on 9th Street on a blue sky day, the mural "Autumn" by David Guinn was unfortunately the victim of a reviving Philadelphia real estate market, covered over when a new building was built on the the abutting parking lot in the winter of 2012.

Not leaving much time or enthusiasm for Pan, though.

I think, Bits, that this seems to have hit a lot of us recently. I hope your logistical stuff eases up soon.

Hi Conrad - lol, as I come back to this photo 3 months later.....Eased up a little, but still rather nutty. Hope you're doing well this summer!

Thanks EagleHunter! Philadelphia has a quite extensive mural program. I think there's something like 3,500 of them around the city. But this one was sure startling to see while walking up the street.

Many Thanks Ann Broder and strzinek !

Hi JCD - I'm happy that you like my photo of a now-gone mural in Philadephia, and in your blog you've provided a link to the original photo here on Panoramio. But you need to be aware that the format you have used to share my photo and the others on your 'Best of Panoramio' blog site doesn't meet the Panoramio terms of use, and can be interpreted as a breach of copyright laws. Since you've provided links to original photos, and especially due to the name of your blog, I'm pretty sure you just aren't aware of the API, and would be glad to comply with it.

At the bottom of every Panoramio page there is a link 'API' which provides the format needed to share Panoramio photos on other websites.

The API requirements include: You should never post an actual downloaded copy of the photo, but only post the active photo link. You must always acknowledge the actual photographer and their copyright. ( In my case, all of my photos are 'All Rights Reserved') This would be very easy to provide as the text where you say 'link to original photo'

And Panoramio requires that the Panoramio logo be displayed.

If you are having trouble with any of the formatting, there is a thread in the Forum specifically for questions about implementing the API, and people there will be quite happy to help you with it.

Thanks! And good luck.

JC - The API requirements are the API requirements. You're now stating you are intentionally ignoring those requirements, thereby breaking copyright laws.

Yes, please delete my photo if you will not respect the API requirements and copyright laws.

Please also keep in mind that others whose photos remain there in violation of the API can and likely will report your blog for those infringements.
