OK - I need to take out 21.gif jdannels in this round of the MS tourney. I figure he will come out swinging with something amazing in symmetry. Some long exposure ocean shot or something. Symmetry aint my thing so in I go with this image. Aidan struggled with the painting as we were doing it but once he saw how cool he looked it was all good. So wish this was advanced but whatcha gonna do. Some of the outtakes are hilarious. I hope to remember to post them.

And as a side note - I am not a face painter. Never done it before so that would be the reason it looks like hack job - cause it is. But looking at images of Gene Simmons his face paint wasnt really a whole lot smoother.

Last night of the challenge and I have over 300 votes and a 7.2+ average. YEAH BABY! That image alone did a number to my overall vote average recieved. Hoping to hit 6.2000 this coming week.

Hoping this ribbons. I would be replacing one of my kids on the front page with another. Aidan wants a copy of this shot printed so he can hang it in his room. He thinks he look sso cool. He has no clue who Gene Simmons is.

And next I move on to 21.gif vitaminb. If I am lucky my entry will keep up the pattern I have set with these last 2 weeks. Or it could tank. Either way - it;s cool.

Thanks for the votes and comments. Made for a fun week.
