Jill, she/it does look off-balanced either way. If she is real I'm a little surprised the photo made it into the wedding album let alone the Library of Congress.

would love to go with the statue but!!!!! look at the line it does not add up in my book - base vs. floosy.

My husband gusses some type of ash tray or cigar tray is the base item we are seeing.

Sticking with my gut --- she jumped out as the photo was taken ----
Aunt MADEM just look at the brides face "who invieted HER !!!

I opted for the "not so proper family member" rather than a statue. I can't see a statue of that nature at a wedding unless it was a joke on the "happy" couple.

Also notice hair tie --- I do not think her hair is showing but tied in a wrap around the hair with the bow at top and hat over it ...... ??????

the only way i can interpret the rules here is as my attached shows. since the upper edge is arched and since we have to remove all of the card backing and since we cant drop out any of the actual photograph, i dont see how it could be any other way. (it's sloppy, but it shows what i mean)

and, with that in mind, as of right this minute, to me, the first two entries are invalid... but then, i'm probably reading something wrong in the rules again

craig

edit: actually, i just took a closer look at cazubi's and it seems fine. nice job, cathy and very clever

whether or not she is a statue (I'm undecided, its strange for either) thats defiantely not her base
I'm tempted to say she wasnt in the original photograph and has been added later, she just doesnt match anything in the picture, her skin is too dark, her dress is inappropriate and no-one is loking disdainfully at her as she ruins that wedding photo.

After further investigation, I reckon she's a statue or someone messing about with the photos.

clearly a different wedding, probably the same location - if you look carefully you might see miss special relative on this one too

Well Im going to have to agree to disagree with some of you on this one. I am convinced that its a statue with a base. She doesn't form out of the top of the base in the middle is all.
