If you right-click and save the images to a local drive, you can inspect the image's EXIF data to extract camera, lens and GPS coordinate/date/time details.

One such free Windows program that will show you *all* of the EXIF data in each image is PhotoME.EXE

Feel free to share these photos with anyone, anywhere, anytime as long as my name remains embedded in the EXIF data.

I hope you enjoy them!
