Changed my picture (which wasn't, you know, actually MY picture) to this one of a chocolate scented candle I was given for Christmas. As you can see, it's almost gone already. :)



I actually think its pretty funny...but I don't think pictures that you did not take yourself are allowed(?)
*nods* I thought that too, and in fact usually try to take a picture specifically for the prompt. However, I've found that I can use a picture of a picture (magazine cover) and pictures I've already had in my photo library, so I thought this might be OK. If not, I'll take it down.
oh ok...just did not want the mods to freak out on you.
No one has said anything yet. Mods?
I am not a freaking out kinda Mod, so no worries there. As a community we do want to promote posting our own pictures because we are a photography community trying to explore our own creativity not a meme community. I know we can get away with taking pictures of pictures and I think I have done that before or thought about it but I would like to stay away from that as well but sometimes that pic is just a part of life and it calls to be taken.

I do want to stay away from finding pictures on the internet and posting them because I do not want the community to be come a meme community - the prompt being more important than the photography.

As you put this picture under a cut and made sure that you didn't say it was yours and YOU post very regularly your own photography I didn't really see it as a problem as long as it doesn't become a habit and doesn't replace your photography.

Thank you for being involved in photo_scavenger and posting your photo prompts regularly.

Okay, Thanks. If it's setting a bad precedent, though, I can go light a candle and take a picture of it real quickly. I don't know why that didn't occur to me last week when I was trying to find a fire somewhere. :) I may do it anyway, just to keep my record clean. :)
Like I said, I am not too worried. I will just FREAK OUT on the next person who does it. ;)

Change it if you want but no worries if you don't.

That quite literally made me LOL!
Me too. Then I cringed.
