Rusty makes me famous again

Remember these?

They're gonna be in a book! Or some other of our Disneyworld photos will be, anyway. Two of our pictures, both photos of me taken by Rusty, are going to appear in a book for scrapbookers about how to take good amateur photos at Disneyworld. Check out this e-mail. We're famous!

> A website (_www.PlanSnapScrap.com_ ( ) can

> We are looking for a variety of perspectives, so hope to include photos
> from
> as many as 200 amateur photographers. Unfortunately, my publisher won't
> let
> me pay anyone. What you get is a free copy of the book if your photo is
> used. (As well as your name -- and the name of your business and/or
> website, if
> you wish -- on the photo credits page. If you'd rather, for complete
> privacy, you can specify that no identifying information about your photo

> The photos we were interested in using are of Carrie (according to your
> captions), so we would of course need her permission as well as yours as
