  • The photographer says:

    I’m glad you like my photo, and appreciate your attempt to provide attribution, but copying the photo from Flickr, hosting it yourself, and printing the name of the photographer is not enough to be in compliance with the terms of use. An attribution link back to Flickr is, at a minimum, required.

    Better yet would be to leave the photo hosted there rather than copying it, but that’s not required.
