Once again I am doing my weird thing. "Which weird thing are you talking about, Major P?". Well, the thing where I go through a batch of slides and post the less-interesting examples, getting them "out of the way" so that only gems are left. We've certainly seen plenty of very nice Instamatics from my pal "Mr. X", but the supply is dwindling, and I want to end with a bunch of especially nice ones. Just because.
But that's not to say that today's offerings are junk! This is a pretty nice Mark Twain photo - it's just that we've seen so many pictures of that sternwheeler. SO many. A googol of them at least. The color and the lighting are pretty, though.
And this is a fairly plain view of Main Street Station (it's 11:30, do you know where your children are?). The Santa Fe sign gives me the warm fuzzies, and even 1/3 of a Tiki Room poster is worth a look.
This picture was taken during the zombie war, when Disneyland was completely empty during the day. Submarines sat open and derelict, the lagoon was empty, and nobody was riding the Peoplemover. But once the sun went down, the undead enjoyed all of the park's attractions and shows!
