Well, I had myself a wonderful time at my favorite gardens/park today=) These pictures were going to be used for Rosa's "your Home/Dinotopia home" thread, but I decided that I should just create a new thread for them since I did so many.

Beware those avians in the Basin... You never know who they're watching!
Deinonychus hiding out- beware, he's a cranky one!
Yes, I actually put my elasmosaurus in that scummy water....

My personal favorite- an ouranosaurus overlooking the falls of Waterfall City.

Awsome! You're so creative with your photography. You know, you should try publishing a dinosaur story picture book that's illustrated with your dino photographs. It would be cool and I would buy myself a copy and some more copies for my little sisters and my niece and nephew!
That's a wonderful idea, Rosa! I think I just may go for it=) How much would you be willing to pay per copy? And, if I did this, do you think it would be better as just pictures or if I added in a little story line, like a childrens book? I'm sort of leaning towards just the pictures and letting peoples minds make up the story.

Cool! Love the photos. You did really good at getting the dinos to match up porportionally to their surroundings.
Ooh! I think you should do pictures with a story line. Or maybe how you went on a safari-type adventure to discover different dinosaurs still 'alive' around the world. Sort of like this one book a person did where s/he photographed a bunch of fairies around the world after spending months searching for them (There was a line or two, or perhaps a few paragraphs, I can't remember which, of story line devoted to each photograph). It's a really interesting read.
I would buy one too. And the fairy picture book sells in Book & Game for something around $30-$35, I believe. And it has around...yeesh, it's been so long since I saw it...I think around 50 pages or more of photographs. And the photographer took pictures of good fairies and then of evil fairies and told about them. Pretty cool. Anyway, I'd certainly be willing to pay that much for a picture book done by you.

I would definantly buy one of Azzy's books; I say go for it!
I read a book once called 'Time Flies', it was made totally of pictures of how a little bird flies into a museum full of dino skeletons. As it flies, the dinos are shown becoming real! The bird has travelled back to when dinosaurs were alive, and has a great time flying around all the neat kinds of dinos. Then it gets eaten by a T-rex, but it flies through the rib cage and out of the skeleton back into the museum and out into the sky. It was pretty cool! You could do your story without any words at all, if you wanted. Just a thought.

All that is gold does not glitter, not all who wander are lost.
I like the idea of a story line too, but either way would be great. Do you think you're gonna do it, Az? As for a price on the books, just let us know what your price would be and I'm sure you'll get some buyers! ;D
YES! I will do my best to get a good picture book out of this=) I have already made a trip to the Conservatory and taken a lot more photographs. Now I will be working on deciding about a short storyline. Once that is done, I'll see about contacting some publishers. Lots of work, but I promise that I will give it a go. If nothing else, I can do it something like the calendar and let people read it online/donwload and make their own copies.
