Credit where credit is due, everybody! ALWAYS! - Paul

Today, a couple people in the photo tipped me off to this article in Time Out Los Angeles.

It credits my photo to some guy named Sam Webb. Looks like Sam decided to screen cap my photos without attribution to pad his own article.

Thanks to Google search, Time Out used the same photo for their article, and deciding to be courteous, cited him as the photographer.

Time Out and the website hosting Webb’s article have since fixed their credits, but this is a good reason to acknowledge your photographers and sources of information.

Without doing this, it just turns into a big pool of wrong information. 

Or there comes a day when you discover that you took a picture of your daughter, and it ends up on the cover of a book in Turkey:

The book:
