Your Most Artistic NON-DISNEY Pictures

Wouldn't it be nice to see more artistic pictures from members? I'm sure many of us took pictures even when we're not at a Disney theme park.... don't we? Smile

I'd love to see them.

OK, so I'll start.

Before my move, I lived closed to Lake Michigan. During the summer months, one of my favorite things to do is pack a lunch, and walk to the lake. Then, spend hours just laying down and enjoying a nice, lazy afternoon. The lakefront and the view is always amazing, so I often took a lot of pictures. Here's one.

That's a great pic Zz
Are other Orlando parks allowed? I'll have to get digging through my archives.

Awesome idea! I can't wait to see everyone's cool artsy fartsy pics!

Tony -- I'd love to see other parks!

Zz -- I want to be out in a sailboat now after seeing that pic. The great lakes are so beautiful. Ready for winter to be done done done.

A day at the ball park. Can you spot the ball? Smile

Is it the white dot about 12 feet infront of the bowler?

This is the Devon coastline in south west England.

Ooh that's pretty Tony. Is it near where you live?

It's near a town called Clovelly which is about a 4 hour drive away. Thats probably considered close by you guys but for the average Brit it's a long way.

Here's some more of the town and the harbour looking back up the hill.

Winter wonderland followed by a summer sunset! I love this thread. I've got to go dig through my photos and find some to post. Thanks Zz and Tony!

One of my favourite subjects to photograph is cars on show, they don't move at the wrong time and never complain that you're taking too long with a shot. Oddly, my second favourite subject is animals, which require good timing and a bit of luck as there's often only one chance at a shot.

Anyway... here's our weekend toy, it's an MG 'F'. It was 14 years old when the pic was taken, rear drive, mid engine, 120bhp and 0-60 in around 8.5 seconds. This was actually taken with my old phone that only had a 2mp camera.

Well, no, I don't think it is better. I'm just amazed that we got almost the same shot. Here's mine:

I had to stare at those for a long time to make sure they weren't just the same photo. Incredible.

Zapperz -- how do you like Kauai? Have you been anywhere else in Hawai'i.

Nope. Didn't get a chance to go anywhere else. I was there for a week attending a conference. So there wasn't that much time to do island hoping. I did get to see quite a bit of Kauai, though.

Zapperz, where's that? Looks like a blast! Did you get to ride those slide-y things?

Zz we have one just like that at a ski resort in the White Mountains of NH. Rode it many years ago and it was a blast.

That is at Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They have a mountain resort area (i.e. tourist trap). You can go up using cable cars, and have the option of riding downhill back on them, or take the "fast" route down (for a fee) on the slide thingy.
