Getting permission or finding out what the licensing/usage guidelines from the original source is always a good idea. When in doubt about how a designer/photographer would like their work referenced, ask them. Sometimes attribution blurbs can be confusing or hard to locate.

If you loved the photograph or concept enough to include it in your blog, you should give full credit.
