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:

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.

Well this year was not such a great start for me, had to already miss a day of work due to a bad cold I spent all of last week trying to get over.  I'm still not 100% over it but at least I'm starting to feel better.  I want to apologize to all watchers looking for new pictures...clearly I've not updated in a long time, even though I do have some stuff I could put up.  Truth be told due to the fact I must decrease my time spent online, there will be much less frequent updates.  I will be coming on deviantart only to check on my group AnimalsofTheWorld and keep that updated as much as possible.  The problem is I spend enough time on a computer at work that I don't want to spend further time on a computer at home.  My PC is not the greatest setup either I have a tiny work space in my small bedroom and often sitting in the stupid folding chair I have (even with a cushion) starts to give me sciatica pain down my right leg.  It gets extremely uncomfortable working there.  My only recourse is to get on my laptop and sit on the couch which is more comfortable, but still, my goal is to spend less time on the computer. I have other things to do with my life and not to mention a plethora of health and family-related issues that's putting a bit more stress on me. One thing I will elaborate on is weight gain I've dealt with in my 30s....I need to lose a good 30lbs now and I'm looking into ways to start at that journey.  

None of this means photography is out of my life...hardly. I am not as active with that either lately but I still enjoy it and will probably get to visiting zoos again at the return of Spring.  Winter is not my favorite season at all, and like most people I prefer indoor activities at that time.

So all that being said, thanks to those that continue to watch me and support my group, I really do appreciate it and thank the deviantart community for all the happiness they have given me :)

God bless you all!  :huggle:
