I try to make a concious effort to take newer pics of my guitars if it's been a while since I have taken photos of them.
There seems to be a trend on many forums to use the exact same photos over and over for what seems like forever. IMHO, this is really boring and I find it actually detracts from the thread. For example, of someone posts a thread called 'Show Your Jazzmaster' and you see a few pictures of guitars you have never seen and then there will be a whole page or two of the same old boring shots. This kind of makes me scroll through and it bores the crap out of me.
