It’s been quite some time since I’ve written here. Part of that is due to a lack of creativity, and the other part is due to life being far too busy. But, I had an interesting chat with a coworker the other day who is getting into photography, and it really made me want to […]

If you’re a Disney fan photographer, you probably recognize the space in the photo above, but for those who don’t, this is Court des Anges (Court of Angels) in New Orleans Square in Disneyland.

I took this photo while shooting the […]
Today’s photo comes from the Hub at Disneyland. As I was editing some photos last night, I came across a few just like this one from my last Disneyland trip. The common theme that I see in them is that I am a huge fan of taking these shots at a ‘normal’ focal length. Nothing […]
