Safe driving tomorrow Bret. Have a great time and I'm looking forward to your TR.


(That's another quarter for the WDW savings funds, Usnuz!!! You must have a whole stack saved up now from all that page turning. )

Love the map that shows the parade route! And also good to know Hall-O-Wishes starts at 9:30 buys me a few more minutes to get to a decent spot
Our dates are 10/28-11/2

CHEERS!

A little late to respond since I was concentrating on my DL TR.

I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. Such happy memories.

Thank you TK. After showing me those pics of MNSSHP in 2007, it made my decision an easy one that I might not be able to do it again in the future. So I should take advantage of seeing it during the Halloween season. I'm trying of not watching the parade and fireworks so I can be amazed. I talked to them during the trip and they are leaning towards getting MNSSHP tickets on the 30th while I am going. I was excited to hear from them that they will go to the party with me on that day. I don't plan on wearing a costume which I also didn't wear one during MHP in 2010.

Thank you for taking the time to look for those pictures.

Thank you PiO. You already know that I had a great time at DL and hope you like the pictures with the new lens and filter.

Nice to hear that your dates are almost similar to my dates. Hope you and your family have a great time.

Bret - The new lens and filter are just tools....it's about the photographer. Your photography skills have always been great; the new lens and filter will only enhance it.

I just had to comment because PrincessInOz said - more or less - what I've been saying all along, in general. In fact, I think I've said it you in the past, too, Bret.

Taking a good picture mostly comes from 'up here' (I am pointing to my head!). It's all about imagination, creativity and simply having a good eye for what might make an interesting shot, while knowing how to crop/compose/frame it to get the effect you want. That is probably at least 50% of what makes a good photo, if not 75%. The camera is simply the instrument that helps execute one's vision and bring one's idea to life.

It also helps to really love the subject you're taking photos of, whether it's a beautiful field out on the middle of nowhere, a vibrant sunset or a Disney theme park! Whatever the subject is, that love comes across in photos, wouldn't you say? When looking at your photos, there's no denying that you love Disneyland and Disney World. It's very apparent.

I would venture to say that there are probably plenty of ambitious people who spend lots and lots of money on DSLR's and all of the costly accessories...but cannot take a decent photo to save their lives because they just don't have that 'eye' for it like others do. Likewise, there are lots and lots and lots of fantastic pictures that I've seen floating around that were taken with Point & Shoot cameras!

So, as PiO said, it's about the photographer (and how they make their camera work for them)!

You are absolutely right PiO. Even with the new lens and filter, its all about the photographer by taking the pictures. With a DSLR, point & shoot, etc. it is all about the photographer of how to take the picture. Thank you for the confidence.

You did say the same thing in the past Sherry that is is about the photographer.

You are right that it does come from the mind, imagination, creativity and a good eye of what might make a shot very interesting. Sometimes I do crop/compose/frame for my pictures, but I just go straight up with what I got which is enough for me.

That is one of the most important things about taking pictures is the things that we like to do. Since I like going to the DL and WDW, I can just keep taking pictures of the littlest things to the biggest things.

There are people who do spend so much money on DSLR equipment which they do for a living. Even with expensive equipment, it all depends on the photographer to get the picture.

Thank you Sherry and PiO.

Just found out last night that my DB and his GF bought tickets to MNSSHP on the 30th which is the same day that I am attending during my trip. I was glad to hear that my DB and his GF decided to go to the party. Now I will be at the party with other members of my party that night as I was about to go solo. I told them that I might do things on my own and they can do whatever they want to do. I do plan on seeing Happy HalloWishes fireworks, Boo-to-You Halloween parade and Disney Villains Mix & Mingle. There is still a lot of planning to do these next two months. I still haven't got any sit down restaurants yet, but it's highly likely that we will do a walk up during our upcoming trip.

This will be a very fun event for you and your DB and his GF.

If I were you I would go with Le Cellier for lunch on the 31st. That would be a great Halloween lunch where it is so hard just to get in Le Cellier. Via napoli is very nice and it is easy to get in then Le Cellier.


Just about a month and 4 days until my trip to WDW during the Halloween season.

There is still a lot of planning to do these next few weeks until it is time for the trip.

Bret - you asked about character breakfasts on your DLR thread; which prompted me to come back in here and check to see what your dining plans were.

I see you were going to ask your family on their preferences for meals but I didn't see you mention anything about character meals.

Are you planning on doing any at WDW?
