A picture is worth a 1000 words

What harm can one picture bring…well…

A photo can identify where you are at a point in time
A photo can show others where you live/work
A photo can show something that could be used against you in the future

If you tell your mum that you were at home studying and you post a photo of you clubbing on Facebook…you better find a good excuse to explain that before you get home.

If these are things that could get you in hot water, best that you think about how you take your next photo.

Be aware of landmarks, company names/logos if you don’t want to be tracked.

At the very least, keep your photos private.

Here’s an example from early in the year:
