Sighted in the +Google Maps wild just now! Cute profile  too ;o) I was viewing a business listing on Google Maps, saw the photo, liked it, wanted to see some more. That's when I noticed that the photographer's name was +Local photos. The photograph was clear and up-to-date. This is helpful, more so than the business's own posted images alone, or Wikipedia-sourced photos that aren't necessarily representative of the business as it appears at present e.g. due to recent renovation.
