With the purchase of that rather pricey wide angle I bought, I don't think I can afford to go into a camera shop for a while


Any requests for which park to cover first, or shall I just pick the first folder in the Flickr collection?

Wow what great photography. I really enjoyed your photos. My Disney one's don't seem to come out as good as ones I take elsewhere, I'm probably too busy having fun to take good photos. It was great to see these.

Is Larry From Scotland still living in Scotland at the minute? I'm in central Scotland

If you go with family it is definitely harder to take your time composing photos! Coincidentally, I had a conversation with someone last night and said that I have become more and more aware what an anti social sport photography is!

Animal kingdom


Welcome to the Animal Kingdom by 2Tiggies, on Flickr

I love Animal Kingdom! I loved it from the first visit. I think the colors and attention to detail and the theming carried through this park is just incredible.


Some theming details in Asia by 2Tiggies, on Flickr


Everest by 2Tiggies, on Flickr


Asia by 2Tiggies, on Flickr


We made several short visits to this park. Rain this year, something we have never had to deal with, caused havoc with our plans. Quieter parks mean more things down and / or unavailable and the torrential rain and thunderstorms on two occasions had us miss the Finding Nemo show as well. We enjoyed what we did there but I should preface this part of the report by mentioning that we did a lot of our favourite things over and over and there was plenty that was skipped out. For example, on our first day we went to ride Dinosaur and that was down, from shortly after we arrived and still not running when we left the park around 3 pm that afternoon. Primeval whirl was down, we found ourselves going to three places to finally get an ice cream as there were problems which are so insignificant I dont even recall them. Plenty of the characters we have always seen around AK were not there because of the slow season as well. It didnt detract from our enjoyment of the park but you will start to pick up very quickly that I dont like dead quiet parks because the trade offs for me are too great. Anyway, its not a negative review (although I was disappointed with most of my photos here  never deleted as many from a park ever, lol). Lots of issues with blown out skies and washed out colors so if not the weather, it may just have been the time of the year. Anyhow, that all out of the way, on to all the many good bits (and there are plenty).

First stop, every time? No introductions needed for this! The good part is that this was walk on pretty much throughout the day on every visit (although they did close it during one horrific thunderstorm but that didnt affect us as wed only ridden it about 8 times that morning).


Expedition Everest by 2Tiggies, on Flickr

For those of you who read other sections of the DIS, you will be familiar with the frequents questions posted: Is it safe to take my camera on rides? Well I have the answer to that and will never be persuaded otherwise. Safest place for my camera is right in my hands. What is the best way to ride a coaster? Why, like this of course:

So that you can get these kind of photos

We love the rides and seeing my daughter's sheer delight on her face every time is something I want to have recorded in history, no matter what the quality of the photos.

I think seeing the enjoyment of your kids (or even family or close friends with you) is such a big part of the pleasure of the whole Disney experience

Yes, but Grandma was quite brazen, she's only holding on with one hand!

ANIMAL KINGDOM - Part 2: Festival of the Lion King

Festival of the Lion King

Definitely one of Disneys finest shows and by the time I return it wont be there any more, if Disney rumors are accurate and the plans for Avatarland go ahead. So we made a point of watching it  twice in fact. This was a very challenging show to photograph, with the smokey effects, bright colors and movement and general low, but fluctuating and ever changing light. It is fair to say that at least 70% of the photos I took were deleted and I kept about 30 (yeah I took a lot  I was determined ) They are a little noisy, as a result of having to crank the ISO a bit higher than my sensor probably cares for, but that's the trade off until I learn more
