What am I missing?

I wanted to find a picture to use on my blog. I looked on flickr as I remembered that they allowed people to use Creative Commons’ licenses. But I can’t find a picture I can use. Everything I looked at was using an attribution license. The license is worded as follows:

Attribution. You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).

So where on flickr do the licensors state how you should make the attribution?

    I think the common way to attribute a photographer is to write photo by somewhere on the page where the photo is used. At least that would make me happy wrt to my Creative Commons Attribution/Non-Commercial photos.

    Each photograph should say in the Additional Information section either “All rights reserved” or “Some rights reserved”. In the latter cases that text will be a link to whichever Creative Commons license is in force.
