Greetings, I'm back with what I feel is a special treat.
1.an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.
I've mentioned several times my love of Wishes! and photography in general (e.g. Capturing the Blue Fairy). In preparation for trips to the World, I did a lot of research into the various fireworks presented at Disney parks around the world. One thing I never understood is why Wishes! at the Magic Kingdom has never incorporated the spectacular Mickey Mouse burst from Remember Dreams Come True from Disneyland. There is photographic evidence that this particular fireworks pattern has been shot off before on the Orlando property, so I can't believe that it's not physically possible to achieve. For me, this would be a simple plus to apply to an already wonderful show.
Well, on my last trip, I got about as close to this happening in Orlando as could be without the Mickey burst being added officially to the show. What made it possible was nothing by blind stupid luck or serendipity.
I usually don't like heavily Photoshopped pictures; but, this was one of the moments I think a little application of the clone stamp tool pays off.
First the unedited version as it played out in real life.
After a bit of help from Photoshop, the sight that I hope one day will grace the skys above the Kingdom.

I guess somedays, it's better to be lucky than it is in Anaheim.
