Disneyland, Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Thursday night, I was fortunate enough to be invited to sit in front of the castle for The Main Street Electrical Parade...

...and for "Remember... Dreams Come True" fireworks!

Although I've seen these fireworks before, it was my first time actually taking photos of the show. It was exciting. Thank you M!

Disneyland/ California Adventure, Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

I went to spend a couple of hours Saturday afternoon at the parks. We didn't have much planned except for having dinner there. I took my camera anyway.

Disneyland/ California Adventure, Sunday, May 28th, 2017

I was glad to hear the Pixar Play Parade returned to Disney's California Adventure. I haven't had the opportunity to take photos of it until Sunday. 

In honor of Memorial Day, Disneyland also had red/white/blue banners allover Disneyland. Nice touch.

Disneyland, Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Today was Star Wars Day at Disneyland. I was looking forward to take photos of people dressed up in all things Star Wars... except there weren't many. So.... here's Tinkerbell in all her cuteness.

"Ladies do not start fights, but they can finish them." - Marie, The Aristocats

I went to the parks again yesterday and I got there just when Mickey's Soundsational Parade was about to start. I'm definitely glad I took photos from it. The above photo is probably my favorite one because of the dancer looked at the camera. Beauty and sass... and she knows it. 

I also did something different yesterday. I tried using manual focus the entire time. A little bummed out because I missed some great opportunities. The photos came out blurry so I didn't focus it right. It's all good because I took other great shots. I got a lot of interaction from the dancers and characters, which was great. 

Anyway, on to the photos...

Disneyland/ California Adventure, Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Nothing special about taking photos today, aside from it just being another gorgeous day in So Cal. I'm just glad I didn't forget my battery this time. On a happy note...

Disneyland, Saturday, April 29th, 2017

Ever since I bought my new prime 50 lense, I haven't used it to close out the park, so I decided it's finally time. One of the awesome features of the lense is the depth of field, meaning... the forground will be in focus but whatever is behind will look blurry. It's an awesome affect...

The only drawback is that it's a fixed 50mm so I can not zoom in and out, so unfortunately, I switched back and forth with this lense and my 35mm to get the wider shots.

Disneyland, Monday, April 17th, 2017

It's been a while since I took photos of Mickey's Soundsational Parade, and I was happy when I found out it was coming back.

Apparently, so are the dancers. Joy!

Disneyland, Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Just another Disneyland trip on Sunday. It's been a while since I was able to go on a Sunday and it was great. It was Easter Sunday, and the park was empty. It was a gorgeous day, too.

Anyway, more photos behind the cut.
