Don't you just LOVE it when someone posts a picture?

I was very pleased to see that my "Snappy the turtle" TB has finally got to be photographed with some American turtles. B) I sent him off to Florida to meet the turtles and although he made it to there nobody added any real turtle pics...

 

But he then wandered off to Oregon and teamLOAR finally added two turtle photographs: It just goes to show that sometimes a TB will complete its mission but maybe not in the way you expected... MrsB

Sadly my little Snappy turtle has since gone missing. I've tried a couple of emails to the person who has him to try and get him moving again... but no luck. :unsure:

 

Never mind.

 

In better news, Guffer Gecko's looking well.

I always love seeing photos of TB's on their travels. I usually try to take photos when I can - especially of interesting ones but wish more people would do it.

So far none of my TB's have had any interesting photos (though I always request it on the TB page) but here are a couple of ones I've found and take pictures of.

My favorite photos people post of my TB's is when they post a picture of my TB with its inspiration...

 

Like Riley's Rickety Traveling Chevy TB

(Here's a better picture of the TB itself which was posted by someone else)

I really like it when people take pictures of my geocoins. In fact! I even have a geocoin dedicated to it! My Sailboat Suncatcher geocoin is called Riley's Take My Picture Geocoin. Unfortunately, it seems that not many people have been taking pictures of my trackables, but when they do, it's really fun!

I recently had a "TB WAR" with another user, where we posted pictures of each others TBs getting near-tortured! It was hilarious, and other users joined in too! Here are some of the great ones- and the TB Links too

So in not all cases, you might not want to get pictures of your TB posted! Haha

I had this TB with me on a few trips and it visited a number of caches in the South Island NZ. The TB is 1SDAsweetpea's geofish. The TB owner emailed me asking "What is a gumboot" so I took a photo of the TB sitting on a gumboot by the Clutha River. This is about 100m from our house. Drop in and see us some time?

I really do try, just sometimes I don't have the camera. Had one this day, though, as I swapped one in and one out. Sail Away near Berkeley Marina.

And one other while facing San Francisco, across the bay, from Dog Day Afternoon, one of the older caches in the bay area.

Our TB that we take with us everywhere: TB404FA but he only comes out for really awesome caches.

 

We have a hard copy that doesn't leave us, and can be discovered at events, etc. But we also have different posable versions of him that we use to take the pictures with (hence the different outfits and gear). If other cachers want to add to his adventures to places that we'll never get to go, we'll gladly send out one of his "copies" for pictures (and the tracking number of course), just as long as the other cachers send him back. :)

Here's one I took of a traveller I picked up Baby Aiden - I have to say I get a kick out of taking photos with the travellers - sometimes it is hard to get a good shot, but every now and then you get a classic one like this!

Here are a few pics I've taken. I love to do fun pictures for other people's trackables. I figure what goes around, comes around.

 

I took this one of someone's GeoCookie Coin. I quickly made a trip to WalMart for some real Oreos because the photo made me hungry.

And then there's the time I took a few trackables to a Star Trek Convention...

I took this Spark Plug TB to the school they used in the movie "Kindergarten Cop". It's not a toomah.

And this gave me an excuse to actually wear my Yoda mask.
