    I am PrairieProf on Instagram, and while I am honored you chose SO MANY of my photos, I feel quite ripped off that you did not ask me permission to use them or notify me in any way/give me credit on Instagram. The ONLY way I found out about this is by a friend posting the link on my Facebook page.

      Hey Anne,
      Per Instagrams terms of service, as long you as embed them in the instgram improved embed it’s ok (They are still being hosted on instagram technically, we are just showing instagram’s page). That being said, if you want us to take them down, let us know and we will right away.

  2. Anne

    No, you can leave them, but I still don’t see why you’d just grab SO MUCH of my work without having the decency to notify me on Instagram on somewhere.

    Also, I’m pretty sure some of those are NOT from Waterloo, IA! There is no La Boulange Bakery here and no vineyard that I’ve ever heard of.

  3. Tom

    There are no wineries in the immediate area. The ones that are sold produce the sweet, fortified types.
