Photo Finds at Magic Kingdom Park


A few weekends ago, on a rare Sunday off, I ventured on over to Magic Kingdom Park armed with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and my Apple iPad - odd bedfellows, I know. I don't own a fancy DSLR or point and shoot camera, so I have to make do with what I have. 

Let me preface this by saying I am not a photographer. Never been one and probably never will be. I take photos for fun and then see what kind of effects I can add to make them "pop" and perhaps look a little less ordinary.

I will usually post my photos on Twitter - @MikeAndTheMouse  or on Facebook. Needless to say, I gained a few followers that day after posting some of my photos. One lady even insisted on buying one of my Splash Mountain photos to display on her wall! Very flattering, indeed. I sent her a copy. Gratis. Now, as I said, these photos will never win any major awards or make their way to a magazine cover any time soon, but if you are like me, and you utilize what you have available to you, you'll be able to create pretty nifty photos that lots of folks will enjoy.

Photos were taken with the camera on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and edited on an Apple iPad 4 with Google Snapseed. Taking advantage of the free wi-fi at the park, I was able to edit and post immediately while still searching for other photo opportunities.
