Disney Land

22 Jul

After postponing our trip yesterday because of rain (that cleared by lunch time) we headed off today, not to be deterred by weather, even if there was thunder and lightning in abundance.  Suffice to say it was a very wet day that eventually cleared around 5 pm.  Perfect timing for the light the night parade and the fireworks.
A couple of shots to share.  The dream to visit Disney full-filled – one I never thought would be possible.

What to find in the wind and rain

21 Jul

Today was meant to be a visit to Disney Land, alas the weather changed our plans.  While others in our party headed to Festival Walk Shopping Mall, I stayed at the Hotel and wandered around the block.

As it was raining it was the ideal opportunity to test the water resistance of my new camera and lens.  It certainly didn’t feel right and I sure did get a few looks, especially from others with camera bags slung across their shoulders.  So far though, all seems well.  Camera and lens both appear to have operated correctly and so far no signs of ‘issues’ – apart from lens fogging initially after leaving the air-conditioned hotel room.

These flowers are growing in a hedge on the corner of a busy road intersection.
