I think this cam was meant to be found. The pics don't look like normal pics, it looks like they were taken for the purpose of having some photos on a camera that was to be left.

I don't know. I found it during a thaw in a snowbank. It was wet and muddy. I expected the photos to not be able to be developed.

You should bring those to the store they were taken in if you know where it is. That would be neat.

I mean..if the person who took them worked there or know who those people are.

I've figured out where the store is. I'll do it and let you folks know what happened.

Even though these images aren't exploitive, it seems inappropriate to post found pics of children. I think we owe any child more protection than that.

I honestly don't understand that concern. She was out in public when the photo was taken.

Yes - you have a valid point. But posting an image to an internet community isn't quite the same as simply seeing someone in public. I wasn't suggesting you don't have the right to post the picture, but rather commenting that it would make me uncomfortable to post a photograph of someone else's child. It just wouldn't be the the same, for me, as posting a found-photo of an adult. To my mind, a child deserves more respect - as does the right of a parent to determine where and how their child's image is displayed. I probably shouldn't have commented - just displaying my incredible over-protectiveness where my own child is concerned - but I know had I lost the camera, I'd hope it would be found be a like-minded parent.

Honestly - I might have kept it to myself. If I've offended, please accept my apologies.

I replied to you because I never understood the argument, or understood the argument and thought it was stupid (you can't post pictures on the internet because pedophiles will use them). You're point about the rights of the parent, however, make a lot of sense to me.

I like the second to last one.
