A- If you took the photo, and it is yours to use and share. Otherwise, if you are not the photographer, you MAY still be able to use the photo in certain circumstances. This is if it constitutes "fair use." Section 1-7 of the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. 107, gives you a limited right to use others copyrighted works "for purposes such as criticism and comment." There are a number of factors taken into consideration when considering if infringement has occurred such as: whether you're making money off from publishing the picture, whether the picture was already publicly available anyway, whether or not it's worth any money, whether publishing it decreases its value, and several others. It's important to know that none of these can solely determine what the courts would deem "fair use." You are solely responsible for the content of the pictures posted and must comply with all copyright laws applicable to republishing and reprinting.
