I joined the photography blog network I Heart Faces, and every week there is a photo competition. So, to start things off right, I dug this out of my archives (since I didn't really have the time or a child/pet to shove a hat on real quick for a pic!) and am officially submitting it.

So you can't see the hat too well but here's the story.

This is from our honeymoon. One of the first things we did was to get the Bride and Groom Mickey and Minnie ears. His is a top hat with Mickey ears stapled on it. It's the cutest thing. There are other pictures of both of us with our ears on that are cute, but I wasn't sure if the contest entries could have more than one face; I looked and didn't see any that did.

But anyway, I took this picture while we were on the teacup ride with my point-and-shoot I had a couple of years ago. This year, now that I've got my D60, I'm looking forward to duplicating the shot. Yes, you heard me. I am volunteering to submit myself to incredible motion sickness for the sake of the photo. I must be crazy!

This photo probably got more comments and laughs than any other photo we took that trip. So, now I am sharing it with you. :)

    BTW, thanks so much for your thoughtful comment. That really meant a lot because I hesitated to even post my thoughts about that. Have a great day!!
