I finally got around to creating two new userpics that I've been meaning to create for a while. Here they are:

Whaddaya think?

Also, I've been working on the presentation of my userpics page — not that I expect it gets a lot of views, but I certainly look at other users' userpics all the time. I'm trying to be better than I was initially about crediting photos and all that. Now, I have this funny hang-up that every userpic I use must either be of me or represent me. Thus, there is rarely any artwork to credit. Most of the userpics are made by me. Should I put some note somewhere saying that, unless otherwise noted, all userpics are made by spwebdesign? Or do I add "icon made by spwebdesign" to each userpic's information? Or leave it as is? Also, what do I do if I'm not sure who took the picture? (elgatocurioso, did you or your wife take the gorilla and King Richard's Faire photos?) When I can't remember who took the photo, should I simply leave it uncredited, or should I mention that the photographer is unknown? Feel free to browse my userpics and give me your feedback. Thanks!

I think it's important to give credit where it's due I also think that at some level I am not a professional and have no ambitions towards it, the photos I take of my friends are pretty much freebies and what they want to do with them is a gift I give to them.

However, I do have a few professional photographers as friends (as I'm sure you do) and should they be able to gain notoriety or work from the photos they have shared with me, I would try to offer them credit for their work. It's more of a support of their chosen professions/hobbies than a worry about being meticulous.

I'd have to tentatively say 'yes' on me (or the fabulous Lady K) taking both of those photos, although I don't know for sure. Our photo albums are all at the Baltimore house currently.

Well, I'm pretty sure it was one of you two, just didn't know which one. Also, who took the Hearts photo? Was that Jesse?

Whoever wasn't in the Photo! If it was him, his last name is "Pollock".
