after a few reloads, I wasn’t able to see the picture. It’s the second time today. Is it just random, bad connection or else? I am a bit confused
This may not be true for your particular case, but SOME of the "seed" portals had photos in a format incompatible with the current games' rendering. Players found that by adding a new photo via Ingress, sometimes those wayspots would suddenly pop into existence in Pokemon Go (if they happened to be in an otherwise-empty cell).
But those wayspots remained in Ingress, and thus would still be in Lightship.
This will also apply to the 4square stops Niantic has recently created. They are not legally allowed to use photos without permission (which we as players have given) so all the portals not created by a player or sponsored will have no photo until a player adds one. This is also why "3rd party photo" is a nomination reject reason.
I've seen several wayspots with a big red "?" since... forever.
I've recently noticed some of the wayspots I see have stretched photos inside the disc.
I have seen some without pics. I assume it is when we check the pics and reject the bad ones. If all rejected there may be no pic. Many pics have cars, animals and people in them which Does not meet eligibility criteria.
