Radiator Springs Fun



Welcome to Cars Land! Hard to believe, but I really haven't done much photography in this area since it first opened in 2012. I typically avoid it because of the crowds. Time to rectify that! Our Tour Guide pointed out the wire in the telephone shown here.



Hidden Mickeys pretty much bore me now. They are totally expected just about everywhere in the Park, so the random surprise is not much of a surprise anymore. Still…this hidden one is somewhat cool and I had never noticed it before. Thanks Maria!



Standing in line for Radiator Springs Racers, Matt from TDD snapped furiously before his perfect hair was affected by the 40 mph attraction vehicles.





Janet was popping the dramamine again and ready to try Radiator Springs Racers for the first time.



Ah, the falls! Words cannot express how much I enjoy this attraction and the scenery along the way.



Pardon the grainy shots; I was too lazy to switch to my low light lens and I was also hoping to get some wider angle shots than I usually get with the fixed 50mm.















Watch out for the paint sprayer!









Next time, I will be sitting in front of Matt.



The big finish! Other than blocking most of my shots, Matt's hair seems to have been immune to the gusty winds of RSR.







Back "home" again:

In other news, I am VERY excited to announce the release of a new book about Disneyland by Shannon Laskey that features photos by none other than moi (that's French for "me"). Click here for the press release. You can also find out more about the book on the official book website.



You can purchase it at Barnes & Noble (which is faster):

or on Amazon (which is slower; it will say "Temporarily out of stock" but they will fill your order…eventually):

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0991295439?keywords=Going%20to%20Disneyland&qid=1449241899&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

GET THE HARDBACK! This book is beautifully designed and the quality is outstanding.

Race on over to my main website for more Cars Land photos.

I pre-ordered this book a few of weeks ago on Amazon.com and was wondering why it said temporarily out of stock. On the "Look Inside" feature it looks like an awesome book release. I can't wait. Nice added bonus that your photos are featured in there. Thanks, Dave.

And yes, Only the hardcover will do.

Some day I will actually go back to DCA to see Carsland! Like you, the legendary crowds keep me away. Maybe I need to wait for a rainy day, if we ever get one. The cavern with the tail lights was hyped as being equivalent to the old Rainbow Caverns, but this is the first photo I have ever seen... maybe it's not as spectacular as was planned?
