RE: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Picture Etiquette
- I tend to agree with most of the posts on this. If the picture is one of your children holding up a 30 caliber ammo can, or the cache page describes the container, your are certainly not giving anything away. If it is a clever, or evil hide, I'd hold off posting that particular picture. As Melanie suggested, if the owner would prefer his or her hide not be photographed, they can always request you delete the picture from your log.-----Original Message-----

Subject: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Picture Etiquette
So I've been caching for a few months now and it just occurred to me that I may have been breaking some cache etiquette early on. I was taking pictures of my kids holding the cache and posting them on the cache pages. I was careful about making sure not to show the cache in it's hiding spot, but it just occurred to me that some people may not even want their cache shown as this may ruin some of the fun of the hunting. What are your thoughts on the matter?
FWIW, I still take lots of pics, but seldom upload them to the geocaching site now as I'm not really sure what I should and shouldn't post. Looking forward to your feedback.
