Disney World trip photos

July 19, 2009 – 9:25 pm

We recently took a vacation at Disney World. I was determined to get a decent camera before the trip, so I snagged a Canon EOS Rebel XS, an entry-level DSLR camera. The consequence of this is that I took way too many photographs during our trip:

I’m still a newbie when it comes to photography. But I did manage to scrape some decent shots off of the camera during our trip. Below are some of my favorites. Click the photo to see it on Flickr; there, you can click “All Sizes” to see larger versions.

  4. Just Gorgeous pics! What beautiful family and friends you have.

    McAfee blocked three of those photos here at my little U.S. town library - including Mila’s attack on the photographer! LOL, whatever happened in the paparazzi incident, I hope that you recovered!

    Thanks –RA
