As the author of one of the photos, it is a great honour to see it was chosen, and it's also good to see it credited. However, it would've also been nice to have been informed of it when it happened, rather than to find out only yesterday, more than one year after the whole business and by the most complete and absolute chance. 

A comment or mention on my instagram would have been just nice, you know. And I would've shared the post with friends which at the end of the day would mean more visits to the Time Out website!

Thanks,

Well I was at least expecting a reply or something...
