I had a hard time adjusting to the time zone difference (Hong Kong is 12 hours adjusted from my normal Chicago Central time zone) so I was up before sunrise. The park wasn’t scheduled to open until 10:30 and the resort bus to the park wasn’t running yet so I wandered around the hotel looking for some good shots as the sun came up. Back behind the Hollywood Hotel sign is a faux Mulholland Drive with a couple of antique cars that people take their photos by. The sky was pretty hazy (what I would later learn is fairly typical in China thanks to the smog) so the light wasn’t that great but I was able to get a couple of good shots. I wound up using a circular polarizer to help with some of that haze but still the skies weren’t anything to write home about.
Today’s photo comes from Frontierland in the Magic Kingdom. Big Thunder Mountain is one of the most photogenic things in all of Walt Disney World, at least in my opinion. When you look at it from the right angle, you see nothing else. It really feels like it takes place in its own little world. […]

After consulting Google Maps I noticed that Hong Kong Disneyland was a mere 20 minutes from the airport and a plan was hatched. To be honest, I never had thought about visiting any of the foreign Disney parks but I couldn’t let an opportunity like this pass me by. This is the first of three posts talking about my 24 hour adventure.
Today’s photo comes from a nice afternoon in the Hub at the Magic Kingdom. There is nothing quite like being in the Hub of a Magic Kingdom style park. While I do prefer the Hub at Disneyland, there are still some amazing views and photos to be taken of Cinderella Castle and the Magic Kingdom […]
Today’s photo comes from a blue hour at Cars Land! Blue hour is pretty awesome at California Adventure. You have both Cars Land being lit as well as Paradise Pier. The blue starts on the left side of Cadillac Range and then eventually makes its way all the way over to the right. For this […]
Today’s photo is from Hollywood Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Photographing the Citizens of Hollywood is a ton of fun. I think they’re my favorite thing at DHS to photograph, with maybe Tower of Terror beating them. It’s a close race. I had never seen this citizen before, but just like all the others, he […]
