“This is my Girl Scout troop in about 2001. Whoever thought it was a good idea for a troop to take a picture in a cemetery….”

“This is my mom and dad who went to visit my brother in Texas. They stopped off at a scenic overlook in Austin to take some pictures. I have no idea who that is in the background nor why they are dressed that way, but they obviously thought it was a Kodak moment too.”
UPDATE: Sooo… we heard from Jennifer, the Superhero in the background, and got her side of the story.
“As for the pic, it was w/ a pro photographer for some promo work I was doing. My last name is Justice so I was doing a superhero theme. I think this was like March ’09. OMFG, I’m still laughing! Too funny. Anyway, I’m not sure exactly whats going on w/ my face here but I’m sure its more annoyed w/ sun in the face and the wind doing the exact opposite of what we were wanting. I know we got the shot because I used it for awhile but I can’t seem to find it at the moment. Anyway, enjoy! I’ve got more family portraits to bomb… UP UP AND AWAY!!

“This is a photo of my mom, dad, and cousins at my sister’s wedding. All my family is Asian, except my dad, who stood out even more whilst giving an odd face-smashing, sideways kiss to my mother. Eyes open, of course. By the way, my mother calls his hairstyle ‘The Nicholson.'”
