I like to think of it as rest breaks which are much needed when I run. I often find many photos that aren't the best views, just because I needed a rest :P and sometimes the most ordinary spots turn extra wonderful.

However, tRicky and I had the fortune on the weekend of being around our nephew (9) and niece (12). Both are addicted to devices, however 9 is so addicted to his phone that massive tantrums and crying ensues without power/charging cables and internet. So Evil Aunty Tash (it is a Thing now) confiscated the phone on the first day and told 9 to go and play with any of the 30 other children at the caravan park.

Thank goodness us adults aren't that bad. Are we?

Well, apparently adults are such bad people that it's now necessary to get permission from parents/guardians of all under-18s for those "children" to have their photos uploaded, so that's one more thing for me to worry about in relation to Easter.

Along with needing more portaloos now that there are 700 entrants!

Actually I think the wording is that you need permission from both the child and the parent for a photo to be taken in the first place, let alone uploaded. Plus the photographer has to be supervised by a responsible person.

Uncle JiM:
While I dont disagree with what tRicky just wrote, do you believe that the Organisers of the recent Bendigo Fun Run asked everyone in there Photo Albums for permission?

Is there somewhere in the big events where notice is given that photos will be taken and placed in the public domain.

Usually you sign your life away when you complete the entry form, e.g. there'll be a disclaimer stating that you may be photographed, but I think the powers that be might have cracked down on it where it involves minors.
