    Summer is fast upon us.

    When you take the family to an amusement park you always bring your camera..

    Lets see some Amusement Park photos, whimsical, serious, artsy, fun!

    I'll start it off with a few.

    All taken during the first trip of the season at Six Flags New England.

    You did it this time, Alan. You just had to open the floodgates. :rofl:

    So I don't get tempted and hog this thread, I will make it a point to show only those I have taken with an :43: camera (my first amusement park trip with the E-PL1 is due in a few weeks now). :wink:

    To borrow a baseball term.. I know this thread is right in your wheelhouse!

    See if you can keep it relevant throughout the summer...encourage all the new users to post... we know they'll have their new µ43 along on vacation.

    Cheers, Alan

    That first photo Alan is something special. Reminds me of my youth and my first visits to the park.

    hi Alan,

    this was in Sydney, Australia Olympic Park. they have this "Royal Easter Show" (i didnt want to use "royal"... as others might think this was taken outside the great wedding from yesterday):biggrin:

    taken with a canon 450d. the lens im pretty sure is a 35-135mm usm lens; taken at the long end (cause the other lens was a 50mm 1.4 usm)


    woudl've been nice if i had m4/3 gear that time. the 450d plus 1d was really heavy on a backpack (and the backpack was also darn heavy)

    Adubo, love the shot. The atmosphere of an amusement park/carnival/circus is one of my favorites.

    My season starts next Saturday at Kings Island and you can better believe that my E-PL1 will be right there with me. I look forward to posting stuff next week.

    Here is my first actual post using u43. I'm still getting used to the camera and doing this while along side being crazy excited about amusement parks, it's going to get a few tries to get used it it. So here are a few shots.
