If the photo has the EXIF data intact, you should be able to see when it was taken, given that the camera's date and time settings are correct.
I often post photos that I took more than a year ago, so posting date isn't reliable at all.

I use the "taken on..." info on the main page of the pic (and not the posting date), but I should use the exif infos when available, you're right

But it may happen too that the camera settings are false or inaccurate. And when you set your camera time in New York, London or Moscow, it remains your original local time when you travel around the world. So I don't trust the EXIF infos so much :/
And most people do not adjust their camera settings at all I found on flickr a lot of pictures obviously of-the-day and dated years ago

i'm absolutely sure that there will no spires. and i don't want some on the SWFC. ok, maybe it would be the tallest building in the world for a short time but it would look ugly IMO

Great SWFC is looking like a monster as usual. I just hope they turn up the pace and do the scaffolding quicker.

It looks better against the Jin Mao than I thought it would. Their angles and lines set each other off beautifully in these latest photos.
