This little photo was grabbed from a webcam image I took in 2000 for the Yahoo! Shopping “World’s La-Z-iest Shopper” promotion, which featured three laptops rigged with webcams for sending image postcards.
The image was used in a Telocity banner ad — and without my consent. The two girls in the image are Stephanie Howdle (middle) and her pal Caitlin, both of whom are Canadians who were vacationing in New York City in 2000 and took this webcam image with me. Quite to my surprise — and quite randomly — I found it online.
