Fantasyland, October 1968

Today I am posting some other images from yesterday’s Mary Blair post, all stamped October 1968. I have to give props to the photographer, who seemed to have a nice eye for composition. I especially like these 3 shots of the Castle, and the fact that he caught Pooh just entering the Plaza. These 3 shots definitely show the color change that occurred for the 50th and still remains.

Here’s one from 2006:

While we’re near Fantasyland, might as well toss in 2 from small world:

...and a very nice one of the Matterhorn:

I agree, great photographer! What in the heck have they done to the colors on the Castle? It looks cheap now. That’s a dramatic “before & after”…

I miss the dark blue slurry that was all over the pavement, it almost matches the sky in the It’s a Small World picture! THANKS DAVE!

You have been outdoing yourself lately Dave (and that's saying something), these are gorgeous pictures!

The difference in the Castle colors are amazing.

BTW, now I *can't* get that song outta my head!
