Any tips on finding and using photos for blog entries?

I know the FAQ says, "Please make sure you are not using copyrighted or licensed images." Besides using personal photos I've taken, what are potential sources for images that I could fairly use?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I assume that you mean free of cost, as well ;)

- Wikimedia
- flickr or photobucket when the owner says so
- getty images (some of them are pay only, some of them are free)
- library of Congress and the like government sources

While I haven't been good about capturing my photos in a single place, such as my photobucket account, just know that if you ever come across a photo credited to Jim Crikket or SD Buhr, either in one of my blog posts here or at Knuckleballsblog.com, feel free to use it in your blog. A photo credit would be appreciated.
