Finally, I have a few shots up from my July 4th trip to Disneyland, which was very enjoyable. These are the first shots with my new camera. Hope you enjoy, and let me know if you have any comments - thank you!
The United States Marine Corps band performed for a special Flag Retreat ceremony and then again before the Parade of Dreams. Semper Fi!
Billy Hill and the Hillbillies at the Golden Horseshoe Saloon:
It's a Small World:
Jedi Training Academy:
Enchanted Tiki Room:
Someone asked about this little guy:
Saw these two monks waiting for the parade. I'm not sure if the saffron robes cellphones, and video cameras make a "July 4th" statement or more a "vow of poverty" statement:
And while we're here on Main Street:
Parade of Dreams:
Mickey was on the final float, but Minnie was nowhere to be seen. Maybe she developed a royal pain, or perhaps an earache?? Heh heh.
And just a couple of fireworks shots:
Oh, and I do want to thank my companions for the entire day! Thanks to my son, for driving:
Our chef (he seemed a little, well... goofy):
Future plans all the way to infinity (and beyond!), by this guy:
Party planning by Minnie:
Close up lens inspection by my son (thank you!):
And my wife, Aurora, for, well, looking pretty even though she was in a bad mood that day. (Crowds do that to people):
Just as a reminder, in case you haven't viewed one of my photo threads before - a $10 donation is required if you have viewed any part of this thread. Pay up! Just KIDDING! But I did want to let you know that any one of the photographs above are a clickable link, so if you're curious about camera settings and data, feel free to look on each photo's page. All photos were taken with a 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens.
