How do we know he didn't turn his camera's timer on, put it down on a
wall or bollard and go and stand in front of the camera? This seems to
be jumping the gun a bit. Also, note the copyright release says "I,
the creator", not "I, the photographer". I don't see any basis for
attacking this image.

It would be handy to have some more image copyright tags available for
use, as the current ones don't cover all legitimate situations.
