    I mean one you didn't take and one you had no idea about. I was on flickr the other day and did a search for my username and you can't imagine my surprise when I saw that someone took a picture of spam and I at QLD Police Union March.

    She doesn't seem to know who we are and just took a photo of 3 photographers at a big event. Seems like spam on this forum found it and tagged me and himself. :lol:

    Not one of me as such, but if I search in Google images, I can find inumerable numbers of people with the same name. I guess that's not so hard though when you share a name with a Premiership footballer, an NFL running back, a US PGA golfer and an actor.

    There are actually many images showing myself on the internet ... sometimes I find some of them by accident. often they do not come with my name when in a group, lucky me ;)

    Also they are hard to find. google my name though, and 98% of all hits is me (not many images of myself though ;))

    I share a name with an actress that no one seems to know offhand, but apparently there are four thousand pictures of her on the internet. Not even one of me, oh well.
