Someone told him his picture was bad because it was from the left side.

How do you know? I didn't see anything in the picture that was a dead giveaway, though I guess it could be something in the data. I once installed an archibald to 3-piece crank adapter backwards in a bike. It was in there so tight and I was only running it as a fixed gear anyway, so I just left it and flipped the wheel and it worked fine.

Some people do left side drive with fixed gear for safety reasons -- the cog will never break loose under deceleration. However, putting a left-threaded pedal and crank on the right side, and vice-versa, is a recipe for pedals unscrewing and damaging the crank threads.

The flag on that green mailbox is on the "wrong" side in the first photo; another indication that photo was flipped.
