Photography Post: Recent Pictures

As some of you may know, my mother in law and her boyfriend have been here for the last two weeks. They unfortunately leave today but over the course of the time they've been here, some excellent photos were taken! Her boyfriend has an absolutely amazing camera so I figured I'd share a few of the photos with you. Please click on them to make them full size!

We went to Busch Gardens Williamsburg on the first weekend they visited. It was INSANELY crowded and we unfortunately couldn't go into any of the haunted houses. Walking around and seeing the decorations at night was nice though. Above are a few shots of the different coasters. My favorite is the bottom -- Loch Ness Monster. The reflection is so neat!

My parents and I about to ride the skyline.

My husband and I riding Loch Ness. Can you find us? (Hint: blow it up)

Riding Griffon. This is SUCH a cool shot as we were in the first drop when he got it. We're on the 2nd row back, towards the middle (Rob, me, my dad and my mom from left to right). My legs look weird.

A really stupid looking me, with my mother in law on the carousel.

After riding Apollo's Chariot, I'm like "DWEE".

Mid teacups. Did I mention I get motion sick? Well, I get motion sick. Hence the "dear god" hand-over-face expression.

Bit overexposed but a nice group shot! Left to right is my mother in law, my dad, my mom, my husband and me in the front all short and shit.

They spent the day up in Williamsburg and got this lovely shot. The tree on the left is just gorgeous!

The following weekend, we went down near the water to view the USS Wisconsin and a naval museum. He got some amazing shots of the water and the ship.

The USS Wisconsin.

The mermaid is the 'mascot' of Norfolk, and these are all around the city. This one is quite interestingly decorated!

The last shot I have for you is quite an amusing one -- this is inside the naval museum. My husband is playing with this toy boat experiment where you set up walls to allow the plastic tugboats to move about. I'm running around going 'uhhh...' and my mom is absently staring at the camera.

Anyway, that's all I have for you! I hope you enjoyed -- I wish I had a camera like this. My makeup shots would be amazing!


  1. Lol, love the action shot at the end! RUN WENDY, RUN!

  2. My favorite part of finding you on the Loch Ness: I'm scanning the pic, looking at various faces I don't recognize. Then I see two sets of, ahem, mammaries pushed upwards by the fall (and that looks like OUCH), then your hub, and then a tiny, tiny lady, and I'm like, "Oh, that's them! Yay!"

  3. Derp - I meant finding y'all on the Griffon. Still. Pretty awesome.

  4. Great pictures! My favourite is the third one from the top - the reflections give it such a neat surreal quality.
