Due to getting a bit of a buzz from finding nice photos for this site, earlier this year I started adding images to articles (where the editorial team member who originally posted the article did not have the time or the inclination to add one). And so, I have been given the nickname “the photo fairy” as I occasionally scatter photos, like magic dust, around the site.
It seems appropriate at the end of the year, to pay tribute to some of those individuals and organisations who have allowed their work to be used via the Commons Creative License, and which have brightened up Liberal Democrat Voice in recent months. Here’s a dozen of them:
Catalonian flags by Marc Sardon (also used by the Guardian).
Dublin and Guinness by Dittmeyer
Ed Davey with a background which is very appropriate to his job as Energy Secretary – by Liberal Democrats.
Speaker at Hyde Park Speakers’ Corner by Andrew Moreton.
The Sun newspaper by vapour trail. In fact this picture is on vapour trail’s Photostream as a random pic from a stag holiday in Ibiza. But it has come in handy on several occasions for us, particularly to illustrate “Page 3″ debate posts without actually lowering ourselves to showing an actual Page 3.
Sierra Leone gold mine by thehunter1184
Israeli and Palestinian children playing together in Tuwani by delayed gratification.
A great shot of the Welsh National Assembly by Wojtek Gurak.
The Isle of Iona Post Office by Freddie H.
A great illustration for World toilet day by worldtoilet showing school children at Tamil Nadu, India following a successful sanitation programme.
Barack Obama after his victory speech from the Barack Obama organisation.
Alicia Keys in concert on Portugal by José Goulão.
