The work we did some years ago on photo annotation following the foaf  
workshop is probably still a good approach:


The lat/long should be attached to the photo with dcterms:spatial.

We simply used dc:date for the date the photo was taken, but that  
might run afoul of using things like dcterms:created and  
dcterms:issued (because of sub-property relationships) if you're  
trying to encode those things.
