Universally Appealing

Theme parks are fun to shoot. The crowds of tourists and their experiences around you amount to a multitude of opportunities for interesting people-shots. I enjoy trying my hand at the typical--but no less dynamic--shots of familiar subjects and attractions. It's also fun to find out-of-the-way details around the parks that might be missed by the common observer, yet still make for good picture-taking.

PhotoFriday: Noisy

Bluegrass and Bar-B-Que

For this week's challenge, "Noisy," I picked this photo from downtown Nashville. This street was pretty loud, with live music pouring out of every bar on either side of the road.

A Dark and Stormy Night

It was a Dark and Stormy Night

I love the lightning storms in Florida. My dog finds them frightening, but I always stop and watch them if I get the chance.

It's how I feel when I get to the weekend, which is Wednesday and Thursday for me right now. Time to exercise my creative muscles.

Magical Images

Anybody who knows me knows I am a bit of a Disney geek. Walt Disney World offers a lot of diverse opportunities for picture practice. Here are just a few of my favorites that I've taken over the years.
Disney Castle
This one is currently my most "interesting" photo on Flickr. In fact, I believe if you do a Yahoo image search for "Disney Castle" this will show up on the first page.

"DeVine," a character from Disney's Animal Kingdom.
