Our trip to Disney World was a grand success. The weather cooperated – even with Sandy roaring up the Florida coastline. For 4 days, we were teenagers again, riding the Aerosmith-themed roller-coaster with wild abandon; shooting up the Toy Story Midway Mania arcade; screaming, arms overhead, as the floor dropped beneath us in the Tower of Terror; overloading on Ghiradelli chocolate ice cream; marveling at the mind-boggling acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil.
Woody and Buzz were there, as well as the cast from the Lion King, The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo. My old favorite, The Muppets, demonstrated their skill in 3-D and Michael Jackson, as Captain EO, made a big-screen appearance.
Photography wasn’t a priority. The focus was on having fun and being together. The camera spent a good amount of time zipped inside my camera bag.
But I did manage to capture small abstract pieces of the wonder that is Disney World – a place built with imagination and magic and a sprinkling of fairy dust.
So enjoy my take on the wonderful world of Disney.
And many thanks for the anniversary and birthday wishes!
