The celebrity gossip site TMZ.com has posted what it claims is an iPhone snapshot of Steve Jobs leaving Apple's (AAPL) Cupertino, Calif., campus Wednesday afternoon with Jonathan Ive, senior vice president for industrial design.

That would make it the first photograph of Apple's CEO published since his last public appearance nine months ago -- at the unveiling of the aluminum unibody MacBooks in the company's Town Hall meeting rooms on October 14, 2008.

Jobs returned to work part time in June after a five and a half month medical leave, during which he received a liver transplant.
