    Photos! Pics! Fotografia! This week at the Disneyland Resort

    A few photos, and fewer words (except for a program reminder to feel free to click on any individual photograph if you'd like shutter/aperture information, notes, or captions, regarding any photograph you're interested in):

    A monorail came to a dead stop when it saw this duck just sitting (sitting duck?) on the track: It honked and honked (the monorail, that is), until finally the duck flew off. I guess it didn't want to take a chance and shower guests below with feathers:


    Anyway, speaking of transportation, the Disneyland Railroad's Primeval world diorama:


    Speaking of trains, the Casey Junior Circus Train:


    I finally saw Britt Dietz in the park! Britt is a professional photographer, who photographs Disneyland Entertainment Cast Members, and even has a website dedicated to his photos, at www.disneycastmagic.com. Castmembers all seem to know him, and some of us (okay, just me) try to learn from his photos and imitate them. Check it out.

    And yeah, both him and I shoot with a Canon body and Canon lenses, but that big lens you see cost more than your personal computer. I have serious lens envy.

    Anyway, continuing the free association, and speaking of entertainment castmembers, check out the parade of dreams!


    There was something missing from this parade, however ... oh yeah, an entire float! The ENTIRE LION KING float, and all associated castmembers, dancers, etc., were gone from the parade. Even the aerialist birds were not there, since they had nothing to hang from.

    Anyway, speaking of birds (see, I am trying to tie this together!), I present the Tiki Room!


    I wonder what, uh, force, holds them to their perch? Speaking of, uh, the force, check out the jedi training academy photos!


    Some beautiful spring flowers in the park:


    And great colors on the castle as the sun was setting:


    My son had a blast on the Disneyland Carrousel. What gives? He used to hate that ride and acted bored to death! Ah, who can explain the fickle tastes of a two year old:


    For all the Disneyland Photos from April, 2007 to date, my album is available here:

    Great shots as always, Froggy. My granddaughter is crazy about merry-go-rounds. I often think of that well-worn story Walt used to tell about sitting idly on the bench while the kids rode the carrousel and dreaming up a park that everyone would think is fun. He did it, of course, but that doesn't negate the fact that little kids don't need anything more complex than a merry-go-round to have a heap 'o fun.

    Truth be told, I think they're fun too.

    Aniko - thanks! I learned from the best like you, to get a Canon. Funny you like the Darth Maul pics, I just have the best time photographing him. I noticed this week that the Jedi Training Academy is sponsored by Hasbro, and I'm just waiting for Darth Maul to be "brought to you by Sephora":

    I think you're onto something HBG... the Carrousel might be the lowest tech attraction in Disneyland (maybe). But kids seem to love it. Actually, my son loves anything that spins - teacups, dumbo, that ladybug ride in DCA, Dad's driving when we go up to the mountains and it snows...

    Wheeee!

    Great photos, as always. And thanks for posting that link to Britts site. It is amazing. After viewing some of his old pictures I am so sorry I never got to see the Ice Queen of Narnia.

    I love that someone else was excited to see Britt in the park. I've seen him a few times now, and each time I want to go up and talk to him. His pictures are so amazing.

    Thanks for sharing your photos! I have the same camera as you, but I don't have a new lens for it yet.
    What zoom would you recommend?

    lens envy....I hear that, but that lens is also very heavy. I do have my eye on an L series lens though.

    wonderful pictures...as always.

    I love the duck vs. monorail photo too! A great stand-off.

    I also love the fact that you took pictures of a photographer. Of course, he's not just any old photographer. Thanks as always for sharing!!!

    Only a true photo geek would go to a shoot and take photos of another photographer. But like I said, I admire his skills and am jealous of his lens!
