If you love photography, chances are you
have considered putting your work together in book form. One great idea
is to create a few books that center on different themes. Here are a
few ideas to get you going. Weddings are an obvious choice for a photography book,
and not just your own. Even if the wedding you are attending already
has an official photographer, your photo book will make a great wedding
gift. When you are taking photos, try to focus on things that the
official photographer may miss, such as humorous dancers, or cute kids.
Holidays are a great option, and your family and
friends will certainly appreciate a photo book of any recent holiday
get-togethers, whether they were able to attend or not. This is a great
way to keep families together and in each other’s hearts and minds all
year round. Whether you are an avid hiker or
you just like to visit your local park a few time a week, putting
together your Nature photos can be a rewarding experience. You can take
photos of natural things like lakes, mountains, and trees, or you can
record all the fun had on family camping trips and the like. Best of
all, these photos can give you that touch of the outdoors to keep you
going when the weather isn’t cooperating.
Another great photography book theme is City Life. Get out and about in
our hometown or wherever it is you are visiting, and get photos of the
people, places and things that you see there.
It may take a few years to get enough material for a book, but taking
photos of a child on his or her Birthday from their first one on would
make a great birthday gift in and of itself. Try to focus on recurring
items like cakes, presents, and other attendees to ensure that the
birthday theme is clear. You will really have
to be on the ball for this one, but having a photographic record of as
many of your Child’s Firsts as is possible would be something that will
be cherished for a lifetime. You probably don’t need any extra
encouragement to take pictures of your kid, but do make sure that you
record such things as his or her first days, first steps, and first
solid food. If you have a family member (or
friend you’ve known for a long time), who is in the process of
purchasing hid or her first home, it might be fun to put together a
book of all of the other Homes he or she have lived in for as long as
you’ve known them. There are probably a lot of great memories in those
places, and your photo book would be much appreciated on such a big
move forward. If you have a friend or family
member who excels in Sports, put together a photo book of as many games
as you can, including stories of their exploits. This will also be a
treasured item as the years go on.

Comic Book 101 – Top 5 What If Stories

What if was actually not staffed with jerks?

Within comics book, there exists endless divergent continuity streams, where one small decision made by a comic book character has resulted in vastly different outcomes. These themes have been explored before in What If? a monthly Marvel comic book series that peeked beyond the multiversal veil to examine such possibilities. Here are five such issues from that series, which are most definitely worth reading.

5. What If – The X-Men Lost Inferno

They may be the children of tomorrow, but the X-Men have faced plenty of insurmountable odds over the years. In one reality, the X-Men did battle with demonic forces, in a war that could have meant the end of mankind. And in that particular reality, the X-Men failed to stop the Inferno War, which resulted in a demonic gate being opened and hordes of demons storming the planet, converting former heroes and using humanity as cattle.

Faced with Extinction, Doctor Strange and his fellow sorcerors are all that stand between the Earth and demonic annihilation. But when betrayed by one of their own, the insidious Baron Mordo, Strange hatches a mad plan to summon the Phoenix force to Earth and use Rachel Summers as a conduit to help close the demon gate.

It’s a story of impossibly high stakes, sacrifice and terrible odds, with an alternative story that matches and improves upon the original. Also, an evil Wolverine eats a baby. For real.

4. What If – The Fantastic Four had not gained their powers?

He may be known as Mister Fantastic, but super genius Reed Richards taking his family and best friend with him into space in order to investigate cosmic radiation was a pretty impatient and stupid move on the part of the famed scientist. But what if Reed had been patient. What if he had actually listened to his pilot and best friend Ben Grimm, and had taken two experienced NASA astronauts with him instead of his wife Sue Storm and her brother Johnny?

Well for starters, the Fantastic Four would never have received their iconic powers to stretch, flame on, turn invisible and look like an orange pile of rocks. This would have resulted in Richards returning to Earth ready to start a new organization, the Richards Group, which would see the Fantastic Four face threats and challenge the unknown without their amazing gifts, proving that just having powers, don’t make you a hero.

3. What If – The Alien Costume had possessed Spider-Man?

Spider-Man is best known as the red and blue webbed wonder of New York. But he has had plenty of costume changes over the years. One of his more signature looks, came in the form of a back in black outfit that was secretely an alien symbiote. The creature may have proven to be initially beneficial to Spider-Man, but after discovering that the Symbiote wanted to bond with him for life, Spider-Man had no choice but to find a way to rid himself of the living costume.

Except in one reality, it was far too late for Spider-Man to rid himself of the Symbiote. After leeching off of Spider-Man, the symbiote leaves Peter Parker as withered frail old husk who dies shortly afterwards, before finding a new host in the incredible Hulk, forcing various heroes to team up and battle the now mindless Hulk, with the symbiote hopping from host to host and becoming even more powerful.

It’s only when the one-time lover of Spider-Man manages to kill the creature with a weapon designed and funded by the Kingpin of crime, Wilson Fisk, that the menace is finally averted, in a bittersweet tale of love and loss.

1. What If – Venom possessed Deadpool?

You think the Venom symbiote running amok and possessing the likes of Thor and the Hulk was bad? Well what if the symbiote had in fact possessed the merc with a mouth, Deadpool? What you get, is one of the weirdest stories ever written, as Venompool hangs out with the cosmic god known as the Beyonder, getting drunk and rocking a jheri-curl. Things get even worse when Venompool finally decides to get his life in order, by becoming the world’s greatest hero.

Only problem? All those other capes hogging the limelight. Deciding to become the one and only hero of Earth, Deadpool emarks on a killing spree that sees various supers killed, gaining worldwide fame and domination in the process. Of course, none of this is enough, and Deadpool decides to be true to who he really is. And unfortunately for us, Deadpool is indeed still a totally irredeemable jackass.
