Open Source Stock Images

Just a small note: “Back to the Future in Venezuela,” by Mark Falcoff in The American.com, features a professional, apropos image of the Venezuelan flag receding in mist.  It reminded me of the allegorical photos often employed by The Economist, among others (for example, here and here).  I was surprised and pleased to see, instead of the usual “AP Photograph” or “Getty Images,” a credit to “Flickr user Joaquín Windmüller.” (Via Pejman Yousefzadeh.)
