I think it's time for some more selections from a good old Kodak Instamatic camera.
Here's a swell look at the Astro Jets and the Douglas Moonliner, probably from 1965-ish. The Astro jets has a nice little crowd waiting for a turn to spin and spin. This picture has great color!
I love this image of Tom Sawyer Island... not only is it bright and sunshiny, but it gives a wonderful sense of the place. Wander trails, explore caves, cross bridges, climb rocks, visit the log fort... TSI was interactive before that became a thing.
While waiting aboard the Disneyland Railroad at Main Street Station, you might just turn your head and see the futuristic Monorail passing by. In front of the ticket booths on the grassy area is a sign advertising Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
Some of you maybe have noticed the addition of watermarks; many of my photos have started showing up on a major Disney park website, and somebody else (a dishonest blogger - don't worry, it isn't anybody we like) has been adding their own watermarks to my pictures. Long story short: from now on I'm watermarking everything. Unscrupulous people will just crop them off, but at least it's something.
