Daily Photo Tour - Arabian Nights


The entrance to Aladdin's Oasis has a lot of rich, beautiful detail that seems to pop in the glow of Adventureland's flickering lights. I love the deep red curtain at the end of the corridor. It has such an elegant feeling of mystery. I took this shot as we made our way out of Adventureland on a 'close out the Park' night. We had been asked to move along by a "suit" but I hastily snagged this shot as we did, with Matthew and Kevin pressing on to aide in the appearance of departure.

Beautiful! I never noticed before (and maybe I am wrong) but is that a peacock in the center with a fan of feathers on each side? I like to pull up your pictures in the large size so I can see things I never have before - very nice!

I wish my eyes could see like your camera lens does! I bet you could even make the restrooms at Disney seem magical!

@Anonymous, Thank you! It is! I didn't notice it either until I stopped to take a picture. Little details like that help me to appreciate the subject even more.

@Anonymous, Thank you so much! That is such a nice compliment and would be quite a feat I think ;)

@Manda, Thank you :)

I agree so completely that I wish my eyes saw DL the way your final picture sees it. I really like the angle of this one too.
