WDW 2011 – Florida Day 14

September 12, 2011

1/22/2011 We awake early (around 5:30 am); after a fitful night’s sleep knowing we were to be leaving; and quietly pack the car and check out. Most of the process is in darkness still, and fairly boring and uneventful. I grab a few snaps once in the airport: Sorry Harry… I just wasn’t that into you this trip. See? Told you it was damned early.

WDW 2011 Day 13 – Epcot and Magic Kingdom (last day)

September 12, 2011

1/21/2011 Our last day in the parks. Today was the least structured. By now coordinating 4 adults with different thoughts on how to tackle / see each park and rides was getting to everyone just a tad. We were all still on speaking terms however – so it wasn’t a complete meltdown. We headed to the Magic Kingdom parking lot and took the tram to Epcot first. I love these billboards around Disney. Our last time passing this sign.

WDW 2011 Day 12 – Hollywood Studios

September 4, 2011

Friday 1/21/2011 Day 12 finds the weather a bit grey and drizzly. We decide to do Hollywood Studios one last time – but we don’t even spend too much time there. This park really needs to be looked at for their next major expansion. I’d love to see more movie related stuff – like a theatre that runs some of the old Disney cartoons or a studio where you get to mix your own short (how to cut scenes, simple fade transition, drop in some music and maybe record yourself over an animation). Anyone with any power reading this? I…

RodeoFest 2011 – Presented by MIGRA DAY ONE

RodeoFest 2011 – Presented by MIGRA   DAY ONE

A good friend who knows I’m always looking for new and exciting events to photograph, sent me information on a 2 day rodeo happening at the Wayne County Fairgrounds in Belleville, MI. RodeoFest was being presented by the Michigan chapter of the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) and the event lineup looked like any other rodeo as far as I could tell. Yes, as my husband laughingly pointed out, this WAS my first rodeo. After getting in touch with the event coordinators (who were fantastic to deal with), and securing a photography pass so I could get some up close…

WDW 2011 Day 8

April 8, 2011

Monday 1/17/2011 First morning in the new hotel. After a night and morning routine we give the hotel a 5 star view with a 2 star quality. The bathroom is tiny – the shower narrow and short (Chris at 6’1″ had to duck to wash his hair) and the water is so hard you couldn’t get a lather. Disney must be conditioning theirs separately as best we can figure since they must be on the same water treatment plant. The TV was a bust – as a storm rolled in and they use satellite – not a single channel to…

WDW 2011 Day 7

April 6, 2011

Sunday 1/16/11 The last morning at the resort. We spent it watching the Japanese station – listening to くるり belt it out: They played Jubilee and Baby, I Love You – and I had to hit Y!Japan to get them as soon as I got home. We walked the grounds a bit, getting last minute pictures…
