Mickey and Minnie
We'll I've just returned from a week @ WDW meeting with some wonderful new Flickr Friends. It seemed appropriate to have my first post be of Mickey and Minnie. This was taken with a Tokina 11-16 (rental). I also had my new T2i (although this was taken with the T1i). Not quite the big guns that some of others had with them, but overall I'm pleased with the results.
It was a blast getting to meet everyone. We had wonderful (hot) weather. It was great how we clicked like we've known each other for years.
A few thoughts on these fine people:
Don is a walking Disney Encyclopedia and great photographer as displayed with his first shot from our meetup (front page explored).
KikiFL (Susan and her husband Bill) were down to earth folks that were willing to share their knowledge of photography and Disney with us all.
DougJax, Scott Smith and Jamee C are all super guys that hung out with us on Friday at Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Jamee stayed until the end with a 1.5 hour ride home with the assist from packets of Starbucks coffee!
Kristi (and Bennet and two sweet kids) joined us on Saturday (for Susan's birthday) and Sunday. Two of the most adorable kids you will ever meet. They are extremely well mannered until I get them worked up ;-)
Aller J another great guy just purchased a Canon T2i camera. So we were learning together (I bought the same camera) and had fun watching the "masters" at work.
Cory our ring leader is a very talented young man. We had a blast using our Red Sox and Yankees rivalry as the basis our our bantering back and forth. He knows that even with his better equipment, his photos still aren't as good as mine, NOT!
Susan (DigitalSLG) is my new favorite Canadian (even ahead of Bobby Orr). She was the center of many of our jokes "ABOOT" Canada, eh? Thanks for putting up with us, ok me!
Thanks everyone for a super Flickr Meetup. I look forward to another soon!
