10 Fun Photos From Orlando

by Kim Calhoun on July 28, 2010

Ah… Orlando, FL… home of Shamu,  Mickey Mouse and a gazillion other attractions to take your family to see. If you are a photographer there are some “must catch” shots and some I encourage you to take.  Here are my 10 of my favorite photos I took on my family’s Orlando vacation.

Wonderful photos!!! I went to High School in Kissimmee (near Orlando) and worked at Disney – and my brother actually worked at Gatorland back then. He was one of the first Gator Wrestlers…ugh…too scary for me to even watch when he was out there. This post brought back some fun memories for me. I love Animal Kingdom…especially the African Safari. Thanks for Sharing!

You have a very brave brother. I know I wouldn’t be doing that. We loved Gatorland. I’d go back there again.

Hi back from SITS!

I’m not sure where the “actual” Shamu lives. There were 5 Killer Whales in the show in Orlando. Thanks for stopping by.

Orlando is also home to some of the most hideous traffic on the planet.

LOL! Yeah we found that out. Whew! We thought Atlanta was bad. :)

Wow – I expected to see pictures of Disneyland. These pictures are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

I do have Disney World pics too, but because there are soooo many people there, it was really hard to get a good shot of anything. Thanks for stopping by.

Wow, amazing pictures–you are very talented! It’s been over 10 yrs since I’ve been the Disney World–made me want to go again!

Kim Calhoun July 30, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Thanks so much! We had a wonderful time. I appreciate you stopping by!

Michelle July 30, 2010 at 9:45 pm

Peace. 😉

I really loved that flower too. It was right by where we loaded on the airboat.
