    Photo Leftovers: Random Pictures from the Parks

    In one week, I'll be in Orlando. I figured it was about time to finish transferring pics from the flash cards and get them on Flickr. There's no rhyme or reason to these...just some leftover photos from the past couple of months.

    Currently down for refurbishment, here are some Fantasmic! photos from late August.




















    Note: these were all taken with a 70-300 lens that I can't bring in the park anymore because of a new and incredibly shortsighted camera lens policy.

    Now, for some utter randomness.



    Flying Cowboy on the Astro Orbitor


    Surprise! And you thought the wet part of the ride was over, didn't you?


    Here's another "water" ride, kind of...




    Over in Adventureland, it was a Summer of Mysteries. Hidden Mysteries to be more precise.


    The Cave of Wonders Stone Tiger was hungry. Do you suppose she tastes like chicken?


    Random Indy sighting on the streets of Adventureland. Only one guy seems to notice him (the Sorcerer hat must give him a keener sense of observation).


    Maybe the tall bad guy tastes like chicken


    The climactic fight on the rope bridge -- things look bleak for Dr. Jones.


    But the tide turns thanks to the help of a trusty bull whip


    Indy finds that navigating the streets of Adventureland is even more difficult than fighting off enemy agents


    We'll take a short break. But more randomness is coming up: the Parade of Dreams, Phil the Duck and Fireworks! Note: you can click on any photo to go to its corresponding Flickr page and larger versions.

    Re: Photo Leftovers: Random Pictures from the Parks

    Let me get this straight. These are your leftovers?? These are amazing! Does everyone have a link to your amazing thread with your NON "leftover" shots? As always, these shots are stunning.

    And as for not being allowed to bring in your 70-300, did you attempt to bring it in yet? Were you stopped? I brought mine in last week, but had it sitting in plain view in the bag. I didn't have it attached to the camera as I thought that might bring down the Disney SWAT team.

    And there's nothing worse than a short sighted telephoto lens policy.

    That IS an oxymoron, isn't it?

    Re: Photo Leftovers: Random Pictures from the Parks

    Here are a few of my favorite photos from Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams.

    Welcome to our family time
    Welcome to our brotherly time
    We're happy giving and taking to the friends we're making
    There's nothing we won't do



    Flora waves her magic wand at me and tells me to take more pictures


    Tinkerbell, in half light, smiles for the camera






    Wish I could be
    Part of that world...







    The Lion King Unit is probably my favorite in POD. Here, a hungry rhino goes after a guest's lollipop.


    A deceptively friendly looking cheetah is scratching Timon's eyes out
















    And this wouldn't be a MiceChat photo thread without a photo of a duck, right? With King Triton's Gardens being converted into Pixie Hollow, I hope Phil the Duck has found a new home. According to a security guard, Phil pretty much ruled King Triton's Gardens for over five years.




    I have to stop for the night, but fireworks photos and Disney's Electrical Parade will be in tomorrow's batch.

    LOL!!! Thanks for the comments Mac Daddy! I did try to bring my 70-300 last Sunday and was told to take it back to my car or hotel room. That was the day of Miley's Sweet 16 though and I'm sure the bag checkers were about as SWAT-like as possible. )

    Datameister, Penguinsoda and Abominable Snowman, thanks for looking at these photos. You are all too kind! I'll have more tomorrow. Although I'm tempted to visit the super-crowded park for at least a few hours. So I may not get back to this until Monday.

    Re: Photo Leftovers: Random Pictures from the Parks

    Wonderful photos - tell me, how do you get those 'straight on' shots? Mine are always from the side during the parade. Do you jump out in the road or do you have a great place staked out on the parade route?

    And I second the others, no way are these leftovers!

    If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.
