In mentioning that I got mentioned in Sunday’s L.A. Times I rhetorically asked if it was greedy of me to want credit for the photo of mine used to illustrate the item. Yesterday I decided it wasn’t and wrote the Times’ readers’ representative:

I was initially inclined not to make an inquiry because I appreciated the exposure in “Heard on the Blogs” this Sunday (Calendar Arts & Music, page 2), but still I’m curious why my photo that was included both in print and online… went uncredited to me.

I received a speedy reply that the issue was being looked into and sure enough in today’s For The Record section:

Bird cutouts: In Sunday’s Calendar section, the photograph accompanying an article about bird-shaped cutouts being hung from telephone wires around L.A. should have been credited to Will Campbell at www.blogging.la.
