2 weeks ago at Disneyland, the Walt Disney World Christmas Special was filming the Christmas Parade. This is a shot of it actually moving; most of what I saw were participants standing in place waiting for filming to begin and then resetting and doing it over. Hannah Montana and Ryan Seacrest were supposed to be in the parade but not where I was standing plus I left after this photo was taken. The park was super crowded.

This photo was taken in the elevator at the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland; the theme has been changed for the holidays to Nightmare Before Christmas. If you haven't been on this ride during the holidays it's a must see.

I forgot to mention the inspiration for my photo posting. I recently read this article on photojojo and thought that is was a great idea; post a new photo each day to chronicle my year as well as trying to come up with new photo ideas. sadly I've discovered I don't have a lot of daylight free time which is limited what I shoot; this does not mean I'm giving up, it just means I'm not posting as many images as I thought I would be. I'm bringing my camera with me when I leave the house more now and I should get lots of "interesting" photos with posts at least a couple times a week. Feel free to comment about a photo here or on flickr.

I want to go here again; the entire drive up the mountains was fun with the windy roads and all the spots to stop along the way for a refreshing view. This particular photo was taken about 40 mins before the entire scene was covered with clouds; it was my lucky day :) although the long hike/walk up the mountain for the better view was both rewarding and disappointing because we saw what all the people heading down told us we would see, a beautiful view of the mountians and ocean but then 2 mins later the clouds swooped in and it was all white. I have 2 photos from up there that show more clouds than mountain and I have another picture of just clouds...lol. I can't wait to go to Kauai again.

Here's my latest panograph; it's #5 because #2-4 just looked ok and I'll chalk those up to being practice. Amy and I went to Disneyland the weekend before Halloween just in time to see the halloween decorations before they were taken down. We already noticed some Christmas decorations in New Orleans Square.
This panograph took about 5 mins to shoot because I had to keep waiting for people to move out of the way to snap a shot. I've now realized that after standing in line taking these pictures that we never had our own picture taken in front of it...lol. well next time.

Over the weekend Amy decorated a new cake and I continue to be impressed by her growing skills as a cake decorator. This is a close-up photo of the top of her Fall Cake; it is a cornucopia with pumpkins, gourds, corn, apples, grapes and all made of fondant.
