    Exclamation September Photo Trip Report - Happy fun excitement times!

    Hey Pals! Ahhh, it had been a couple months since the Disneyland Half and I just had to go back! Below you will find some photos taken in and out of the parks - just a little mash up. I didn't have a long lens, so most of this is shot with a 12-24mm Nikon wide-angle, an iPhone, and one of those cameras you make out of a shoe box. You will see the difference. Enjoy!

    Normally, people escape bleak living places to come to Disneyland. I left my pristine backyard for the parks the morning after this splendid day. Blessings counted.

    So I get to the Disneyland Hotel to meet the fam - my brother put on his new kicks, and we were out the door!

    STR3 by mmayer0107, on Flickr
    We went and saw the spook house first. The lines weren't long, but there were far too many people abusing the "turbo" line (wheelchair line). For every person in one of those Rascals, there were 15 "assistants". I'm confused by this trend.

    Just one of your everyday pumpkins with carvings meant to induce fright. It did.

    This is out of order, but check it. I don't know how many of y'alls have been night raftin' - but it is an experience to be had. You can't see anything and out of the blue, SOAKED!

    Went to this place one night with a college buddy. By the time we had finished our drinks, his bar stool had mysteriously lowered it's self to the floor. A must-see.

    This may be my favorite of the batch. Quiet as a mouse when you get up and run at 5:45 am.

    They are either giving away cars again like they did for the 35th, or someone got lost looking for the Bambi lot.

    STR9 by mmayer0107, on Flickr
    Runners of the most recent 5K, does this site look familiar? I wanted to run in the morning before wandering the parks, and somehow ended up on this road. However, I wouldn't recommend you do the same. I got stopped by a tram and was asked to vacate the area. BUSTED!

    STR11 by mmayer0107, on Flickr
    So I sat here for probably 45 minutes waiting for Fantasy Waters...only to find out that the show has moved to DCA. Oops!

    STR13 by mmayer0107, on Flickr
    Speaking of "Oops" - this Haunted Mansion CM appeared to have been lost. When I got off the ride she was gone, but there was a chill left behind.

    There was an Asian-inspired drift car in the middle of the street blasting top-40 hits.

    Is it my imagination, but not counting the ship made for easy entry for wheelchairs, are there some ships designed for larger guests? It seemed like it.

    These are great! I always enjoy your photos. I too, like cameras but am squandering away loose change for a nice DSLR. The funny thing is, I see so many people walking around with them like no big deal. Those things are not cheap. And can you explain the shoebox camera? I'm intrigued.

    Thanks, Izzy! Just goggle "how to make a pin hole camera" - the instructions are a snap and the results are fun and different!

    "Is it my imagination, but not counting the ship made for easy entry for wheelchairs, are there some ships designed for larger guests? It seemed like it." Maybe you lost weight!

    Thanks for the pix & TR.

    You mean Patrick Warburton?? LOL I only corrected you because I adore him And thanks, I have seen pin-hole cameras before but wasn't sure if shoebox was the same type of deal. I am so interested to learn more. Perhaps I'll be making one soon! Off to Google I go.
