Genea-Bloggers Favorite Photographs

The 4th Smile for the Camera - A Carnival of Images, titled My Favorite Photograph, was posted by footnoteMaven on her excellent, digital magazine quality, Shades of the Departed blog yesterday. What a wonderful variety of favorite photographs from 40 contributors.

My own contribution was an oldie but goodie - that of John Richman (1788-1967) which was embedded in my blog post about my second great-grandparents, John and Ann (Marshman) Richman of Wiltshire in England. I chose this photograph because it was of the earliest-born person that I have in my collection.

The next Smile for the Camera - A Carnival of Images topic is Crowning Glory. Show us those wonderful photographs of hairdos and maybe even a few don'ts. Don't limit yourself to just hair fashion through the ages, got a great photograph of a hat, helmet, bonnet, or some other interesting headgear?

Share!Choose a photograph of an ancestor, relative, yourself, or an orphan photograph that is the epitome of Crowning Glory and bring it to the carnival. Admission is free with every photograph!

Your submission may include as many or as few words as you feel are necessary to describe your treasured photograph. Those words may be in the form of an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem (your own or a favorite), a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article. The choice is yours! The deadline for submission is midnight (PT) 10 September, 2008. See footnoteMaven's post for directions on how to submit your entry.

I have just the picture! Can you guess which one it is?

Thank you so much for participating in the "Smile For The Camera" Carnival from day one.

Your hard work and promotion of Smile and Shades is greatly appreciated.

I, for one, can't wait to see your Crowning Glory.
