I thought it would be nice to have a thread to post some of your own personal favorite pics that YOU took. Any other photo geeks out there?

These were from a pod of Dolphins that decided to follow us during an afternoon sail near Marco Island:

:yes:
We once had a dog called Ben. He used to scratch away at the bottom of the wallpaper. When he got a piece up, he'd then take it in his teeth and rip upwards. He once chewed the leg on a kitched chair and when a guest sat down for dinner, the chair gave way and she fell very unladylike to the floor. I came home from work one day to rags on the washing line....and there was Ben at the very end swinging on a pair of jeans by his teeth. I won't go into the day he chewed electrical wires and the shock I got blew me across the kitchen! And there were many more incidents in his short life. Unfortunately, he got septicemia and died shortly before his second birthday.

Oh and no, not many work at Kodak anymore. Sad but true. Rochester is fast becoming a wasteland. My sister just followed the trail of people and business out and moved to Albany.

Shellyamc, the Finger Lakes region is very nice, but my favorite (after NYC) is the Adirondack region. It's so beautiful and peaceful there (once you get off the beaten path of tourist central). :yes:

The wine tours are nice though!

Herself's sister used to live in Rochester. "Used to" is the operative phrase there. All the major industry that once held Central NY together is going or has gone. :(

I have to agree. There is nothing like the Adirondacks :yes: We spend so much time up there and are actually headed up to Old Forge tomorrow for the day. Hopefully I will be able to get some nice pictures.

I don't think mine are quite up to the standards of the others in this thread, but I'm proud of them nonetheless.

I hope they come out in order, if so, I started with a Florida theme - pictures of Wishes at MK. The others are the sunrise views from the Ramada Lakefront Hotel on International Drive & from a Villa.

The two lightning pics were taken at Key West - Mallory Square. I was especially proud of these, as a guy with a huge SLR and monopod came up next to me, trying to capture the lightning as I was. He tried for ages, then looked over at me and commented 'it's impossible, it's just too fast'. I was using a camcorder and compact digital at the time!

The next two were taken on a recent trip to India. One is the Golden Temple, Amritsar, the second is a picture of the Himalayas as we flew overhead.

Finally, the last picture is of my neighbour's dog, who I'm sure is up there with the fastest things on the planet! Catching this picture was half luck and half timing. I only wish I had more space on the left side of the picture.

I hope you enjoy them, it's the first time I've ever shown any of my pics.

All of the animals I posted above are real, live wild animals but raised by humans.

There is a place about 90 miles North of the Twin Cities area here in Minnesota called "Minnesota Wildlife Connection." They raise animals for both photographic opportunities as well as educational opportunities.

There has been some negativity in the news surrounding the owner and his couple of lapses in judgement. But he really is a nice guy and all the tree-hugging, PETA-loving activists can go take a hike! They've never met Lee and have no idea what a great guy he really is.

But I digress... What Lee does is allow us photographers the opportunity to photograph animals in their habitats in a safe surrounding. He has a large parcel of land with several excellent habitats to photograph from. The animals are never chained nor harmed. There are no fences. We and the animals are free to move about.

No outcome yet. I'm actually slated to go on another photography shoot in late May.

Two sides to every story and unfortunately, the only story out there is one perpetuated by the activists.

Should the bear hunt have happened, maybe not - especially not on State Park land.

That issue aside, Lee has been a great guy and takes very good care of his animals, from what I've seen on my two trips to his land. And I have numerous friends who've also spent many photography trips on his property.

I'm going to keep my mouth shut after this post as I'm passionate on the subject and would hate to offend anyone but IMO 'being a nice guy' just doesn't cut it- If you own something like this 'reserve' (although I'm more inclined to call it a hunting ground) your life and soul should be put into the up keep of these animals. That bear had a serious dental problem and instead of spending money on repairing it he allowed someone pay a lot of money (around $5k off the top of my head) to STAGE a killing of the bear as though it was a wild animal in a wild setting, when in fact it was in an enclosed area and the bear was tame- I remember the pictures of it being hand fed!

Could you imagine letting someone do that to your dog/whatever pet you have? I don't see this as taking good care of his animals. I see it as using them almost like cattle in the meat trade, "If treatment is not economically viable; kill them." :sorry: Part of caring for any animal, be it a pet snake, a dog, a cat or raising an animal to show it, is to do the right thing and treat medical conditions appropriately, or in extreme circumstances, HUMANE euthanasia. To me it seems like rather than spend money he's seen the opportunity to make money- the cost of which was the bear's life.

I know there are two sides to every story but it would have to be a pretty substantial 'other side' for me to over look that kind of foul play.
