Vacation Photos

So, I've gone through all of my photos, and have done some rough edits on most, and final edits on a few. I thought I'd go ahead and share some.

We had such a blast at Disney World! It was a lot more crowded than we had expected, especially since Drew and I had been in September before and it wasn't like it was this past week. It felt like it was June or something! So we didn't get to take it as slow as we wanted, which meant I wasn't able to get the shots that I wanted to get. I felt like if I stopped to do that, we wouldn't get to ride the rides, and, after all, that's why we were there Wink And I was really feeling the limitations on my camera. I wasn't able to get much low light shots because I can only go up to 1600 ISO and I had my kit lens (18-55mm) on the entire time. I put it on manual when I could, but a lot were shot on auto. I'd say I was about 60% manual and 40% auto (or the green dummy box as Drew calls it Wink )

So here are a few of the more artsy, non-family shots I captured:

Drew and I are always at Disney World. Taken in '06. So cool to go and look ourselves up every time we go.

When you go, and you have little little kids, take my advice and get the fast pass for Dumbo. You will be able to avoid a meltdown like this:

The line is more fun than the ride itself...

I have SO many more that I love, but I'll stop and send you over to my blog for the rest. I'll just leave you with my absolute favorite image I took on this vacation. It was seriously the sweetest moment I've ever witnessed. Jackson was a little apprehensive about going up to Mickey, even though he was excited to meet him. He stood back and thought about it for a minute. Then, when he got up the courage, he RAN up to Mickey and gave him a big hug. I will never forget that moment of this little boy meeting the most famous person he knows.

Great set! Beautiful aquarium shots. I've never been to any of the Disney parks.

Oh, you HAVE to go! I've been a lot, and I still keep having the desire to go. I just feel like a kid every time I'm there, and I feel like I'm not even on this Earth. You're so immersed with fantasy. Walt Disney was quite the dreamer.

These are so great! So many of them look like they should be used for advertisements!! Glad to hear you had an awesome time. Smile
