Night photos are as scarce as hen's teeth in my collection. Of the many thousands of images, I don't know if I have more than about 20 or 30 nighttime pictures. So… today's offerings are a special treat!
As much as I love seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle by day, it becomes even more beautiful and evocative at night. The spires glow with warm pinks and oranges, with the occasional cool blue lights for contrast. For some reason this picture makes me thing of Colleen Moore's dollhouse at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry (though I admit that they are quite different from each other).
There is nothing like Main Street USA when all of the "popcorn lights" are ablaze, the many signs are lit, and the shops beckon potential shoppers. Especially if you are lucky and the crowds are minimal - it is (I'll admit it) magical.
