Walkabout in King’s Dominion

Took some of the neighborhood kids (and ours) to King’s Dominion. The day was actually quite spectacular: low 70s, no crowds, no lines! The weather was supposed to be lousy and that’s probably why people stayed away. In fact, the storm clouds began to gather in the afternoon which you can see in one of the shots. By 3 in the afternoon, the rain was coming down pretty steadily and I didn’t want my camera out and the children didn’t want to be out either. So, back to the car and home. I can see that most of the shots I took are just snaps and I need to get back into the habit of taking photos rather than snaps. The first is an attempt–brewing rain clouds behind the insane roller coaster. I didn’t go on any roller coasters and wondered what the helicopter and tanks and stuff had to do with this one…or maybe they didn’t. Don’t know. The second one is a pure snap–the “ride” is this, you sit in these chairs, the machine pulls you up over 200 feet into the air, and then drops you!! This is a shot a split second after the drop began.

I fail to understand why people get a thrill out of scaring themselves half to death! I must be a real wimp!
