Not quite sure what you mean. The images are from sites such as Flickr or Wikipedia so the link back to the image is often a way of giving the required credit for the usage of the image.
This is a good thing! It shows that you are a serious webmaster who does not steal images. In addition because the image is hosted on a different domain your pages will load a little faster. In addition, hotlinking can be seen as a way round copyright issues because the image is never on your server. If you take images and then host them on your server you can be in breach of copyright and that can get quite costly.

We rarely use this type of image these days on our own sites, we use licensed stock images, but building out the infrastructure to do so, not to mention the cost of acquiring the licensed images makes working as AB does a better bet for most serious webmasters with lots of sites. ;) That noted, we still hotlink our images, albeit from our image server. That means we always retain control of the images.
