Living as I do in Atlanta, I have only occasional contact with the
real South, and even growing up 100 miles souther I was in a military
town that was therefore similarly cosmopolitan. Nevertheless, picture
day at school yielded a lot of talk about having pictures "made".
There was a definite connotation difference. Having your picture
"made" involved professional photographers and dressing up and such;
having your picture "taken" could just as easily refer to a snapshot.
These days I consider the "made" use somewhat quaint, associated
with mint juleps and verandas and suchlike. :)
