I'd really recommend you ask first (i'm a professional photographer and deal with this on a normal basis) instead of saying "please post them" then grabbing them for your site.

The DMCA allows for written notice to be given to you and will give you 24 hours to remove the infringed photos or your site can be shut down.

Again, i'm happy to let you use them but ANY photo, even in the public domain, is protected by copyright laws which are designed to protect the work from this exact scenario.
