downvoting this is stupid. The question is fair, why downvote a dupe? –  bharal Dec 28 '12 at 16:34
    
@bharal: It wasn't my downvote, but, I don't think people are downvoting this because it's a duplicate. Downvoting can be done when a question doesn't show research effort (if you don't beleive me, hover your mouse over the downvote button, and read what it says). The first Google search I did was for "picture captions I or me" and the first result was a nice article by the Grammar Girl on this topic (plus this). I don't think these downvotes are unjustified. –  J.R. Dec 28 '12 at 20:26
    
How about just "with Barbara"? Isn't "I" superfluous if the recipient can recognize you in the picture? (You are probably not a stranger to them.) :) –  Kris Dec 29 '12 at 5:47

1 Answer 1

Barbara and I is very formal. In most cases Barbara and me will be appropriate. (You can write Me and Barabara if you want to, but it's considered polite to put the other person first.)
