I've been giving out a lot of llamas lately, as I've discovered the best way to receive is, of course, to give first! As a result of that, I've certainly gotten quite a number of llamas in return, and a lot of posts thanking me for them! There's no need to post a comment to my page thanking me for a llama. It was my pleasure to give it to you! You can thank me by first returning it, and then doing me the favor of checking out the rest of my page. Add one of my deviations to your favorites, leave me comments, or donate a point or two. Anything you do on my page is greatly appreciated! I don't mind drive-by favs, but of course I adore comment

New Camera!

0 min read
I have finally gotten myself my own DSLR camera. I haven't had access to one since my ex-husband and I split up three years ago. Last week I finally corrected that issue and purchased a used Nikon D40. It pretty much hasn't left my side since then and so there will be new pictures in abundance being posted. For those who are bored with all my coaster pictures, never fear, I'm branching out! I'm also learning portrait photography, so expect to see quite a bit of that coming in the future..

Now that spring is here, I hope that I will have photos to add a lot more often. Nice weather means I'll be outside a lot more and will be actively searching for interesting things to take pictures of. I need to get back into the habit of carrying my camera in my pocket at all times. Expect to see lots of roller coaster photos again this season, but I'm going to try to expand my horizons a bit as well!

:wave:Hi there! Just letting you know your photo has been featured! t-ann-photography.deviantart.c…
Nice to see someone else interested in roller coasters too. I lived in Orlando last year, only made it Universal once, but I'm planning to get down there again soon and spend more time at the parks. Exept SeaWorld, I pretty much lived at Seaworld, I lived right down the street from it, haha.
I actually work at both Universal and SeaWorld. In the past I've also worked at Dollywood and Kings Island. I've been in to roller coasters since I was a teenager. My first job was in an amusement park. I think they're more than just thrill rides, they can also be really beautiful examples of engineering. Steel coasters are frequently graceful, and wooden coasters imposing.
nice! I practically lived at SeaWorld when I was in Orlando. I lived in an apartment complex right down I-Drive off the corner of the 7-11.  There's definitely an artistic side of roller coasters that not everyone understands. One of my highschool teachers, who would never set foot on a roller coaster even said there's a certain 'poetic' quality about them. My past theme park jobs have been working on dark rides, but I have done promotional photography for Great Adventure, Morey's Piers and Dorney Park. Awesome to find another like minded individual! 
Do you have any of your photography on dA? I've done some promotional photos for the Island in Pigeon Forge. As a fairly new photographer, I was over the moon to see several of my photos in their brochure.

You've got some pretty nice work.
