Photo TR: A Different View of Dollywood

Mon Apr 20, 2009 9:17 pm

This is my first post. You may have seen me in some of Electerik's trip reports and you will probably see him in mine.

I warn you, this will be a little different--some might even say uninteresting--but it's what I do.

Nice TR. I like the black and white.

Welcome!

I enjoyed your photos.
Definitely shots that you don't normally see, but I really like them.
The black & white added something nice.
Thanks for sharing!

Mon Apr 20, 2009 10:06 pm

LOVED your captions! ...prefer it in the rear... HA! And anyone who can quote the greatest pre-show in the history of mankind ("mostly America") is all right by me. Welcome, and thanks for the great photos.

Mon Apr 20, 2009 10:55 pm

Fantastic job! Those are some beautiful pictures, and the lack of colour just enchances the atomsphere. I especially like the railroad nd log flume photos.

Mon Apr 20, 2009 11:12 pm

Nice best preshow ever reference, love it.

Really nice pictures, I think this park looks great in black and white :).

Aw...my honey is officially a nerd! :lover:

Tue Apr 21, 2009 7:47 am

Quick question - does Dolly post a schedule of when she plans to be at the park or does she just "show up"? I'd love to see her in person when I go...

Tue Apr 21, 2009 9:30 am

Nice pictures. Why has it taken you so long to post a photo trip report?

I've been debating what I should post. I wasn't sure how everyone would feel about my black and white photos.

Not to mention we only have one computer and Erik doesn't share well. :)
