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:


SilkenWinds's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
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 35 currently.
I have Fibro, 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 60D
Lenses: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM, 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.

UNGH. >.<  I just found out from my aunt that the squirrel situation is more serious than we thought. Yes they are getting into the house...but it turns out...according to the pest control people we had come look at it, the roof needs a LOT of work, and there are a LOT of places on the roof they could get in.  They gave a rough estimate of about $2,500 to repair this, and could only guaruntee it for about two years!  :faint:

This is money my aunt and uncle do NOT have. I helped them and paid for the inspection fee when they came to look all over the roof and take pics, but I don't have $2,500.  I am thinking I might have to sell some stuff to try and help them.

Anyone interested in a practically brand new Canon 17-55mm 2.8 lens??…  It retails at about $880, I don't want to take too great a loss, and I know these lenses hold value, so I'm hoping to get $700 for it.
I don't want to go to's RIFE with scams and I can't trust that website anymore.

I would take payment with Paypal so it's secure on both ends. I have the original box of course and as a bonus a lens hood comes with it ;) 

I hate to do this sort of thing but this is such a financial burden on my aunt and uncle and they don't have a lot of money to begin with.  Not trying to sound like a sob story here but seriously if anyone is interested let me know.

The lens has no flaws and is like new... I got it only back in Jan.

My email is -

If you don't want to comment here about it feel free to email me and discuss it.  I also have some Windstone dragons that would be particularly hard to part with but for the right price I would.  
Email me or comment here with inquiries.

Thanks all!
