Walt & Mickey Survey Carthay Circle

Walt & Mickey Survey Carthay Circle

Here’s another shot from my first night at Disney California Adventure. They weren’t quite done putting up the seasonal purple lights yet so it’s kind of a unique shot. Unfortunately, this was also the night security was pushing very hard so it’s one of very...

The Back Side of Castle

The Back Side of Castle

It’s the most beautiful sight in all the kingdom, the back side of castle. Much like Cinderella Castle, although I do love the classic front view I found myself preferring the back-side view of Sleeping Beauty Castle as well. I think it’s because there are...

Peh-No-Key-Oh

Peh-No-Key-Oh

Say the title like Ru-fi-o from Hook and then chant it over and over. Anyways… this is another great little dark ride at Disneyland. It’s not terribly difficult to shoot (other than the blue fairy, I missed her twice!). Shot with my Nikon 28 1.4...

Dusky Tracks

Dusky Tracks

On my last night at Disneyland I had practically no shots from Cars Land. This was a land I was especially wanting to get a bunch of different shots from so I spent practically the entire evening wandering around the land getting various ones I...

Vertical Splash Down

Vertical Splash Down

Mr. Toad Off the Rails

Mr. Toad Off the Rails

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride is the ride I most anticipated riding during my visit to Disneyland. While that may seem odd I have many memories of riding it as a young kid. It did not disappoint. I LOVE the old school dark rides and the...

Carousel Fit for a King

Carrousel Fit for a King

On this trip I took this shot on 2 different occasions. The first time I did it when the park hadn’t closed yet as I wanted to get the carousel spinning. I figured I would not be able to get it people free and spinning...

Alice & the Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Alice & the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Today I’m going to dive in with the first of many dark ride shots from Disneyland. As a classic dark ride lover Disneyland really delivers the goods. There’s so many classics to enjoy. They’re short but oh so satisfying. It makes me sad Walt Disney...

West Coast Partners

With all the unfamiliarity I experienced at Disneyland, being in the hub and shooting Partners I felt right at home. In fact, it really made me miss when Walt Disney World still had trees in the hub and when it was more compact. I understand...
