    I hate to bring a thread back on topic, but I'd be hesitant to post pics of many caches, even more so a local one, and even more so if you state which cache it is.

    I don't specify on any of my caches that I would not like to have a photo taken, but they are all camouflaged in different ways, and while most are nothing super unique or of a style unfamiliar to many, I would prefer it be left for the cache finder to enjoy in person. Of course, if I was contacted and asked, I might be willing to give my blessing for the right reason.

    Example: If you hid the cache below, would you want others posting pics of it in a local forum?

    Lightbulb That cache is so--

    That cache is so-- Well, it's so cool that I can't say how cool it is without using language better reserved to rim a margarita glass.

    When I asked this question I was hoping for a yes or no answer. Unfortunately, I got a yes and no answer. Brdad raises a very good point. I've arrived at the conclusion that if the hiding of the cache is not intrinsic to the reward of the cache, than I will post pics of the cache in my albums on geocachingmaine. If, on the other hand, the artistry of the cache lies in its camouflage, like the example given by brdad, then I will decide on a case by case basis, give ample spoiler alerts outside the album, and adjust my choice based on any expressed wishes of the cache's creator. I think that should cover all bases.

    BTW: Where did that cache come from? It's amazing!

    I think that's a very good conclusion to come to.

    This particular cache is reportedly in California. To narrow it down any further might be against my values! however, a Google Image search for smallest geocache container might point you closer, as well as give you other ideas.


    Another option with some caches - you can take an image from an angle which doesn't give the outside of the container away as easily.

    CA? I heard they shoot people out there for poaching avocados. My admiration for that cache creator grows.

    Yeah - I though about that - but I decided I'd see what happened. I have a slightly different picture without the TB number, but it isn't as good.

    Someone could "grab" it, and place it wherever they want - or hold it hostage.

    Neveer a good idea to have a TB number showing in a picture.

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Thanks to you and Haffy.

    I'd like to see some other interesting TB pictures, though!

    (Sheesh! I thought it was the GeoMaine Furby that was photographed in the Hooters in Shanghai - it was our Maine Chickadee Plate TB! I must be getting old...)
