Photo Contest -- Win $100

I'm still cutting out Christmas cards. But my internet friend, Kim, is running a contest on her site, Are You in My Photo?

What's the site about? I quote from the home page.

This is the strangest photo sharing site you’ve ever seen. Everyone is in someone else’s photos without even knowing it, and this is the place to find these unexpected connections. Is that you in the background of a stranger’s photo taken at Disney World? Is a long-forgotten classmate finding herself in your First Grade picture? You can also share old pictures of ancestors in our genealogy photos section. Surprises. Nostalgia. Memories. It’s all here. And it’s FREE.

This actually happened to someone I know. He was looking at a childhood picture of his friend, taken at Disney, and said to his friend, "Why do you have a picture with my uncle in the background?"

You can win a $100 or a $50 Amazon gift certificate by sending in your photo.

The theme is: What are you thankful for? In honor of the upcoming holiday we would like to see photos of the things you are thankful for. You know, the good things - like family, friends, puppies, vacations - you get the idea. We would love to see vintage or nostalgic photos, but all entries are welcome. The winner will receive a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate. And who wouldn't be thankful for that? Deadline is November 30th.
