Photos made with digital consumer cameras almost 10 years ago have a quite special quality. One can see their age, not from counting JPEG artifacts, but from the pale colors, prism effects around edges of objects, small pixel size, and most of all, the absence of people posing next to their achievements.

Photos used to exist in the context of a home page. There was not really a need to put yourself on a photo if you claimed that this was a car you renovated. It was clear, why else would you spend the server hosting space with a huge image file? Today, when photos are copied around image hosting services and almost as easily copypasted as text, you will never go down in history as the best car renovator ever if you are not present on the photo.
