Bobak Ha'Eri

Most common question:
"How should I attribute you when I use your photo?" Simple: "Bobak Ha'Eri" and it can be placed in whatever style/format for citation you are already using (caption, footnote, endnote, watermarked onto edge of photo, etc — I don't want to make it difficult for you).

If you have any questions, please email me at BobakUSC [at] yahoo [dot] com

Since some people have asked me, here's a map of places I've been.


  • Photos - Since pictures are worth a thousand words, I've uploaded a number of the photos I've taken (gallery available here). If you want to use them, please follow the licensing agreement use the proper citation. Currently at 1500+ photos.
  • Articles - Creations and contributions listed here. Currently at 66 DYKs, 1 GA and 1 FA.

The Fine Print

Please note: Wikipedia does not give legal advice, and neither do I. Whenever I write on a legal topic, my intentions are to shed light on what the law says from the perspective of someone who's studied that particular area, not to formally advise anyone. Get your own lawyer. I am not forming a legal relationship with any of you bastards.
