    For those who take digital pictures of their work and print them to put them in an album.. do you blur the numbers before printing them?You are loosing the possibility to keep tracking the numbers of the car, but at the same time you are getting yourself out of trouble in case the cops come in and find your albums.

    I also thought about blurring the numbers on the pictures but keeping the numbers info on a list somewhere. but then again you forget what car it was and what it looked like. why do you guys think or do?

    eh, I personally don't like the look of blurred numbers, so I wouldn't want an album full of flicks with blurred numbers...It's a good idea for the internet though.

    If you're gettin raided or whatever, thats probably the least of your concerns...

    just my 2 cents

    create a secret code you can write on the back of the flick or keep unaltered photos on disk labeled beastiality porno

    Not me...the blurring distracts the eyes from the goods.

    As far as books go, if you take close shots of a piece then you wouldn't have to worry about the numbers...but that depends on the situation.

    they couldnt charge you with anything more than they could your average railfan.

    an average railfan doesnt have 500 pieces of the same guy with bombing by that guy and wall pieces, sketch etc etc..
    i am just wondering if the blurred numbers would help not getting charged with those mischief.. if they cant retrace em can they still prove them..? anybody had previous experience of being raided and could pm me if they dont want to say it out loud?

    honestly , keeping numbers is semi pointless in the post 911 world . tracking is too difficult to even bother with.

    how is it incriminating to have pictures of graffiti in the first place. Unless you are in them?

    ...i don't edit numbers except when i post them...

    ...one thing to is to make sure your flicks are mixed in with flicks of other people's pieces...they obviously can't charge you with every piece that you have a picture of...my albums are all mixed up of my work, my friends work and random catches all together with railfan shots...other advice that you probably already know...stay out of the shots...avoid night flicks...keep bags out of the way...

    ...and i would think that unless you have a bunch of flicks of cleans from your area they're not going to worry as much about the train action...especially if they've already got you for a large street charge...if you get caught painting freights it might be different though...so don't get caught...

    hehe thanks porque..best answer i got so far..i decided to print them.. i only got about 20 off 150 that you can see the numbers on em. the mixing photos are something i hadnt think about..i usually have my benching albums and then my personnal flicks albums that i keep out of my house. but i guess i wont be able to do that forever.

    same with me, if the number is there near the piece and its in the shot, i dont care, i dont mpost my own stuff either, so i have no problems with numbers, but i do write all my numbers down and shit so that i can find out where my shit is,,,,but i dont usually worry bout it...
