[Bug 14150] I am a photographer as well as a hand-coding web designer. One thing that frustrates me is the duplicity between alt="" and title="" for photographs and photographers. For instance: <img class="thumbnail" alt="David Kyles" title="David Kyles Shock and Awe

You don't have to. In fact, you're required not to. That's horrible alternative
text.

Assuming the photograph is a key part of the content, I encourage you to see:
