Random from Dragons

Come look at mighty dragons in all shapes and sizes!

A very special dragoness called Silkara Lanyxania is surely to be in there.

Random from Photos- Squirrels and Friends

Squirrels are my favorite animals. Look inside the folder to learn why they are so endearing to me. :meow:

Random Favourites

From dragons to photos to cartoons, you'll find it all here. ;) I love to favorite things not just because I like it, but also because I want to promote the artist! Some are sorely in need of recognition so wonderful are their talents!

Artworks I'd really like to buy someday. Unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees, wouldn't it be nice if it did? :XD:

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography

Photography is a passion of mine and someday I hope to have all pro lenses. Right now, I do the best I can with what I have. I have learned a LOT over the years, and my skills have vastly improved. However, much improvement is still needed. Regardless, I hope you enjoy my gallery, and I give a lot of heartfelt thanks to everyone on deviantart who supports me with comments and/or favorites.

The deviantart community is awesome! :dalove:

About that girl in the photo:

Hi there! Call me Ami online. In "real" life, Evie will do.
I'm 36 currently.
I have Fibromyalgia, and sometimes life is VERY challenging.
I love God, believe in Him, and consider myself a Christian.

I love all of God's creatures. :heart:

Well OK...maybe not mosquitoes.

Current tools of the trade:

Camera: Canon EOS 70D
Lenses: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM , Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD

About my photography: I only use natural light and never use flash. I do not use Photoshop and only do minor editing with either Windows Photo Gallery or Photofiltre (highly recommended). My style is extremely challenging because of this but I feel it is the best way to learn. My biggest tip to other photographers would be to get out there and photograph everything. Look above you and below you. The more you look around, the more wonders you will see.

My laptop died, so I got a new one. X)  I was literally told by Best Buy that I had to physically destroy the laptop to protect my personal info because the hard drive is attached to the board, so fixing that thing for $300 something when it was only $200 to begin with was so not worth it.  So I got a new laptop, and it's HP this time. It was a great price and has a disk drive. I'm hoping with a new set-up on a couch my leg won't start hurting me (which it's doing even now) and I can spend a little more time trying to work on photos.  Like I said before I still won't be on as much but I do want to get back into photography in the Spring especially while doing walks as I'm sure that will help the sciatica problem I'm dealing with.  The problem has been linked to my bed, it's sagging in the middle and I don't have slat supports underneath.  I am putting too much strain and pressure on my hip area (I'm a side sleeper) and also my lower back so this is causing the issue, according to people I've spoken with.  SO...long story short, I need to fix my bed! LOL  Since with Fibromyalgia your muscles strain and tire easily, it's essential to have proper support and that includes not just the bed, but your chair at work, your car seat, etc.  *sigh* I wouldn't wish Fibro on anyone!
I hope you are all doing well. Winter...I'm done with it! Woke up to scraping ice off my car this morning. _._  UNGH.  Looking forward to spring buds and new baby birds. :3  Soon...very soon!  But inbetween that I will be going back to Florida in March on vacation to the Keys!  I'm hoping to have some good photo opportunities down there! :)
