I love taking photos of oddball things. For example a picture of the boardwalk.  Not the Boardwalk hotels or the view of the lake.  I mean the actual boardwalk.  Those kinds of pictures are great for backgrounds.

One day we were entering the Magic Kingdom Park right at opening and walking down Main Street when I stopped right in my tracks.  I looked into the store and saw the most perfectly arranged plush Mickey Mouse display.  It was before even one customer had disturbed them.  I had to take a picture.  My family just thought I was nuts.

They were not the only ones.  A very kind Cast Member from China saw me taking the photo.  I tried to explain to her what I was doing but it was lost in translation.  Instead she wanted to take my picture with the plush Mickeys.   She was very sweet and I could not say no.

So where was I going with this.  That’s right… backgrounds.

Example 1:

The picture of the plush Mickeys is a fantastic example of a photo that can be a background.  Here I used it as the back drop of a page in my son’s album.  Perfect for the topic of meeting Mickey!  I just changed the opacity to 75%.
