OK, so I’ve been taking pictures for my articles for a while now, but it’s the first time one of my photographs has been used for another journalist. Imagine my surprise yesterday when my Dublin, Ireland, photo, below, was used Monday on the business page to promo Tuesday’s story about…local attorneys.
I was a little puzzled, especially since Justice carries a pointy sword and isn’t blind.
Sure enough, they used the picture as the main picture, too, on today’s business page. I still think it’s a little weird, but hey, they used my picture (and I got credit)! My co-worker inserted an ellipsis after “inaugurations” in the cutline (caption) to try to match the two: “…and, of course, it serves as a symbol of law.”
Copy editors are crafty folk.
