Fall

Fall is here!! This is my favorite time of the year. I love the crunch of leaves under your feet as you walk, the colors are so beautiful, and I love the smell of the leaves, people starting up their fireplaces.


This is the before picture. I actually liked it alot straight out of camera. The brown twig on the right was annoying me though. So, I whipped out the trusty Photoshop elements, and started playing.




This is the after. I used the clone tool and carefully "painted" away the twig. Other then that I really didn't do anything else.

With this photo, I was just fooling around with the settings on my camera. I wanted to play with the depth of field, it came out well.


Happy Fall everyone!

It is that time again!

And here I haven't done the pages for the last 2 months hehe. Well, it gives me something to do on my mojoless days :)

this month is all about taking a picture of the whole object and then a few close ups of something that makes it up. This could be very cool!

More Disney




More Disney photos. These are all from the Disney Photo Pass card. Basically you pay ($99) upfront and can get up to a thousand images taken by the park photographers. They were really great, they took time with us, never rushed us to get to the next person, and worked with my daughter when she didn't want to take any more pictures. When you get home, you can add all sorts of frames, signatures etc. to them. We ended up having 200 or so photos taken and then another 250 with frames etc. They burn them to a dvd and poof, they arrive in your mailbox. It is a scrapbookers dream!! I didn't have to worry about getting the shots with the icons in the background, and I even ended up in the photos too!!

The above is from Epcot. I like this one, the sky is so dramatic... and minutes from raining!!





This one was my daughter and I infront of Cinderella's Castle. We are a bit wet here :) from another storm passing through. My daughter loved the castle the best I think!










This was cute, they had you pose and then later superimposed images on your photos. They turned out cute. When my daughter saw this, she was surprised, she said she didn' t remember holding Tinkerbelle, but guessed she flew away so fast she didn't see her!







My daughter and Donald in Animal Kingdom. The characters were set up nicely here, all next to each other, and hardly any lines!!

I love this shot!!






This is my absolute favorite photo!! Those photographers really were great!!

Our Disney Trip


This is my daughter and husband at the Second airport of the day....it is a long story, but Jetblue bumped us to another flight even though we has confirmed and assigned seats. We waited for the next flight, and they bumped us again. After 8 hours in the airport, we ended up canceling with jetblue, and flying with Southwest. What a difference, we just walked right on, no problems. We will never ever fly Jetblue ever!!!


This was from Conservation Station at the Animal Kingdom. The mosaic was so colorful, The photos really do not do them justice. On of the highlights aside from the safari (that will be another post) was the petting zoo. They had goats, sheep, your basic farm animals for the kids to pet and brush. The best part (for Mom and Dad) was it was in the shade!



In Downtown Disney there is a fountain at the entrance. All the kids, both big and small loved to jump in and get wet. Truthfully if I weren't in charge of the packages and camera, I would have jumped in too! My daughter loved it, and the second time we came back, she was so soaked, we were wringing out her clothes before we got on the bus!

Of course we had Breakfast with the Princesses. Jasmine here was very popular with the boys and Daddys!! This was really cute, they had it set up very well, and made sure everyone got as many photo's as you wanted with all of the princesses. Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, Aurora, Mulian were all there.

The breakfast was good too, it was at Norwegian house in Epcot. Yummy food, and lots of it!


I will post more pics of Disney. Please excuse the red-eyes, I didn't fix that yet!!
