This is precisely why there are NO RULES on this thread - I don't know when the photo was taken, and I don't care! Recent pix are not always our best pix! Sometimes our best and most precious photos are from our past - after all, photos are our memories, without them our past does not exist except in words which can be manipulated and altered over time, but images remain true.

(well, of course images can be manipulated too, but so far, those manipulations leave evidence to the fact! YIKES - that discussion is for another thread, another time! )

Do you have permission to post these people on the world wide web? Why not use your own self instead?

Understanding Photography and the Law
There are not very many legal restrictions on what can be photographed when in public view. Most attempts at restricting photography are done by lower-level security, law enforcement officials or general enforcement persons acting way beyond their authority. Neither the Patriot Act nor the Homeland Security Act have any provisions that restrict photography. Similarly, some businesses have a history of abusing the rights of photographers under the guise of protecting their trade secrets. These claims are almost always meritless because entities are required to keep trade secrets from public view if they want to protect them.

Public photography is wide open
That’s the general rule. When you’re on public property (a street, sidewalk, city park, etc) you can take pictures of what you see. This means that you can also photograph private property as long as you’re not trespassing to get the shot. You can take photos any place that's open to the public, whether or not it's private property - generally, if you have permission to enter, you have permission to take pictures.

The following exceptions apply
* Per the American Law Institute, "One who gives publicity to a matter concerning the private life of another is subject to liability to the other for invasion of his privacy, if the matter publicized is of a kind that A) would be highly offensive to a reasonable person, and B) is not of legitimate concern to the public."
* One may not inappropriately use the specific person's image for commercial purposes, e.g., stating that the president endorses a product by publishing a photo of him using it.
* Do not photograph in situations where there is a “reasonable expectation of privacy,” which is basically not snapping shots of people in the bathroom, a dressing room, or similar places nor is taking “up skirt” photographs permitted, even if you’re on the public sidewalk. Do not use technology (e.g., a long lens, hidden camera, or parabolic microphone) — to access a place where the subject has a 'reasonable expectation of privacy."
* Military bases and nuclear facilities may restrict photographs even from the outside area. Even if you’re not trespassing onto government land, taking pictures of these installations could get you detained or sent for a round of water boarding.
