Random from Dragons

deviation in storage by mooncookie
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:


SilkenWinds's Profile Picture
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.

Exactly one day after my last journal I became very ill.  I won't get into it but suffice to say I have improved somewhat although every day remains a struggle.  I can't thank :iconmouselemur:  enough for keeping my group going for me.  I hope to get back to it more often soon but it will never be the same.  My goal this coming Spring is to do at least one zoo trip for new photos.  It would be a miracle after already six months of illness.  Your prayers would be much appreciated and thank you!
If you are on facebook check out  Angels for Juliana.  That girl will melt your heart and help you through the worst times.  Her family documents her struggles almost daily and through it all Juliana sustains a positive attitude.
