Blue Monday

Welcome to my Blue Monday Post. Blue Monday is hosted by Sally @ Smiling Sally's Blog. Thank you Sally!


I love this shot of Cinderella's Castle. It is Blue, and so beautiful with the Ice Crystals dripping from it. Oh I almost missed this shot b/c I was all the way in Fronteirland when I first saw the color change to this Blue. (And it was so crowded. A sea of people, very difficult to navigate through the crowd and with 2 families, 3 of us photographers.) There was another Blue, it was aqua Blue. Pretty, and I captured it as well. I will save it for another post as I have a whole series of the castle photos featured in different colors. At night time, different lights are put on the castle changing color(s), even during the fireworks. It is beautiful. This photo was taken before the Wishes Fireworks show. The camera was hand held as there was barely a spot to stand let alone set up a tripod. That night was very very crowded.

I never tire of Disney. My daughter is a cast member. She was performing on Main Street for the fourth time one day, when we somehow (we thought dancing three times meant three times, not three sets of three-dumb us) ended up on the other side of the park. My husband and younger daughter decided to wait, but I took off sprinting. I wish there was a video of me as I ran. People were staring, I am sure.

Sorry for the digression. I think your castle photo is very pretty. I would also have made sure to get it.

The picture and the singing make you want to be there!

I knew there would be a few of us that would enjoy seeing Sally in her habit once again!

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and leaving your thoughts. I hope you have a chance to come back Wednesday and participate in Wordless Wednesday.
Happy New Year, Dixie
