I'm doing something a little different. I'm not posting one of my own photos. Instead, I'm going to quote/share a photo that ended up on the last page of the previous POTD thread, from DIS'er deejdigsdis (who is not on the DIS much these days)...

I think this is a fantastic photo - and it supports what you all were discussing a while back, which is that a great photo doesn't necessarily have to come from the most expensive camera. This is a Point & Shoot picture, and it tells a story and makes an impact. I always say that same thing too - a great photo mostly comes from your imagination, creativity and having an eye or a vision for what would make an interesting shot. The equipment just helps to execute that vision a little better.

What I love about this particular shot from deejdigsdis above is that it evokes a certain mood or feeling. First of all, it's different. It is not the typical POTD-type of Disneyland Resort shot we see, and it is very specific to her trip. But there is almost a certain wistfulness, innocence and nostalgia about it, while it also captures a child's pure joy of being at the Happiest Place on Earth.

I forget if I posted this one yet or not, but we got a real kick out of Mater's quote. It is (or was, maybe) in the Blue Sky Cellar. Those Imagineers!

I hope you get a chance to see her. I got the opportunity to see her perform in New Orleans Square in 2010 and do a meet and greet. She was so wonderful with the people that came to see her.
