82/365: Enchanted Garden

82/365: Enchanted Garden

The morning after the epic conclusion to the Disney World parks, we boarded the Disney Dream for a five-day cruise. I could gush and gush about how much I love cruising with Disney, but then I'd never get around to actually finishing this 365 project, so I'll keep it short.

Once we boarded the Dream, our first stop was the Enchanted Garden restaurant, where the decor subtly cycles from day to night and back again.

356/365: Beginning to Look

356/365: Beginning to Look

Woke up with a sudden resurgence of the Death Cough and promptly lost my voice, so I ended up working from home today while the snow fell and the wind whipped at anything unfortunate enough to be outside. Luckily, this meant I was home to catch the snowfall during the light. I'll probably be cursing the snow before the week is out, but for now it finally feels normal in a way that most of 2012's weather hasn't.

I'm breathlessly excited (maybe that's just the illness?) to have finally hit single digits--nine more days to go!!

355/365: Story Time with Wilfred

So people usually try to do something fun and memorable for our monthly Tech All-Hands meetings at work, but it'll be a long time before anything rivals Zac Paladino, dressed as Wilfred, wearing a "Naughty/Nice" cap (turned to "naughty", of course), sitting by the fire, calmly reading the epically hilarious composition, "The Night Before Hack Day".

Milestone alert! 10 days to go! Ten! TEN!!!

81/365: Magic's End

81/365: Magic's End

It's only taken 270 days for me to pick a photo for March 21, our day in Disney's Magic Kingdom. In spite of the many successful shots over the course of the day, I keep coming back to this one from the finale of the fireworks show. I like the silhouette of the castle, I like the heavy black tones, I like the subtle illumination of the crowd. And the fireworks are all right too. (Actually I'm kind of impressed with all of the fireworks shots I posted from that day; I think they're pretty good considering I was shooting hand-held and basically winging it the whole time.)
