original photo no adjustment made

 This all started on Christmas Eve in 2006.  We were at my mom's celebrating and my little great niece had just learned to walk and was practicing going up and down my mother's little steps.  I took this photograph of her backside because she just looked so tiny and cute.  The face that emerged in the photo was noticeable immediately on my digital camera.  The whole family was freaking out.  Once I got it home it was darker on my actual computer & didn't show up so well so I adjusted the levels in photoshop and it showed up even better than the first time I seen it. 
My mom thinks it's a total coincidence because she had a velvet dress on.  I think it was something bad.  You can definitely see facial features and either a wicked smile or scream.
  Tell me what you think? 

changed to b/w and adjusted lighting levels in photoshop

Levels adjusted but left in color

pray for Darren

My cousin Darren was born mentally retarded.  He is 50 years old and has been a great joy to all our lives.  I would say he acts more like a 6 year old child.  He talks loud, loves to tease and be teased and is a messy eater but loves his food.

 He is fighting for his life right now because of MRSA.  Please put him on your prayer list at home and at your church.  

Here is an email from his sister that I think really drives the message home of how wonderful Darren is:
Darren has staph infection of the blood and pneumonia. He is fighting for his life!

This is what you maybe don't know! Darren is the life, youth and innocence that keep a bit of kid in all of us, especially Dad and I. He is always wonderful to be around, loves all who love him. Although we don't see each other as much as we should, Darren creates this incredible bond between us. He loves to eat, have fun, and yearns to see and greet any or all of us. "OH NO!!! Greg! Stacey! Uncle Jim! How are you?" If more people in this world could know a Darren and not take it for granted, it would be one amazing world.

Can any of you imagine a future without seeing or hearing him? I know I'm his sister and I cannot picture a life without him in it! Please pray or just take a moment to look back on the impression he has made on you. When I grow up I want to be like him!!!

See this movie!

The Town was an outstanding movie!  We really liked it and found ourselves rooting for the bad guy played by Ben Affleck (it's those eyes!).  I highly recommend it to anyone that likes a good action thriller.  Very well done all the way through.
