What Makes Disney Disney
It was very interesting to go to Disneyworld with a fairly newborn photographer’s eye.
I realized how much I have learned…if nothing else, I’ve learned to see.
I remember years ago, taking five rolls of film…most of it was scenes…cluttered scenes. Later, I remember saying, “I took way too many pictures of ‘stuff’…won’t do that again.” We went again years later and I only took photos of loved ones in various locations. Although I hold some of those photos dear, many didn’t capture their essences.
This time, I took lots of photos of loved ones, as well as many, many, many photos of “stuff.” But they were deliberate, and the subjects are more clearly defined.
I found myself in awe of the details…these are what separate Disney properties from other amusement parks. The architectural detail is quite amazing. And for some reason, I was drawn to photographing the lights around the various parks. Why? I’m not sure—but I noticed them…saw them. I don’t think I had ever noticed them before.
So here I will give you a sampling of the details that caught my eye over the nine days we spent there. If you’d like to see more, check out my flickr———–>

And finally, here’s me in Mickey’s mirror. 🙂
