Pictures taken between Monday, September 10 and Sunday, September 16.


Rules: See above


That's it. This isn't a contest. All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).
Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others.

Travel lets you experience the world. Photography lets you share the experience with others.

A cruise ship is my favorite camera accessory!

We had heavy rains for 4 days -- Gordon dumped 8 inches on us.


The rains beat down my marigolds.

We went out for lunch yesterday and the rivers are still very high. I tried to catch some of the debris going down the river. I missed the refrigerator.


You can see how close the water is to the restaurant where we had lunch.















You can see debris up along the river bank as well.

Monday was my last day at Disney World this trip, so for once I can squeeze into the 'weekly' thread on the same week its posted! Here are some shots starting at 3:30am from my resort room, through to Epcot.

3:30am view from my balcony at Saratoga Springs resort, looking across to Disney Springs:


Inside Epcot's big giant golf ball (Spaceship Earth) is a ride about the history of communication...here's a scene of ancient Egypt and the development of papyrus scrolls:


The 'Living with the Land' boat ride takes you through greenhouses and fish farms, like this one:


The France pavilion at Epcot:


The interior courtyard of the Land exhibit:

Majestic Princess had her maiden arrival into Sydney today to picture-postcard weather (with summer-like temps of 31C/88F). So I went and had a look - getting really excited now for my cruise on her next month

But the hibiscus flowers are lovely - thanks for posting the picture.

Thank you.


We have never had hibiscus flowers bloom this late in the season.


What is left of Florence should not hit us with tons of rain. The Carolina states have been hit hard as the storm stalled over them.
