Daily Photo Tour - Preparing for a Dream


A few evenings ago the three of us (Matthew, Michaela, and I) had the chance to meet with a follower of ours from Twitter who also takes interest in the same two things we do, Disneyland and Photography. We had the chance to talk for a little while, but it wasn't too long before we moved deep into Disneyland and began shooting some HDR. One of our first spots we tackled was in Frontierland. As we were making our way, I caught an angle that really grabbed my attention. I noticed that workers were preparing The Sailing Ship Columbia, and The Mark Twain for something very special.

It's the peacefulness of the River's of America that always sets the stage for a great night of Fantasmic. Its the stillness in the air on those warm summer nights that helps provide a great contrast for what is to come. That is, Mickey's Dream. I can imagine all the hard work and preparation that goes into such a production like Fantasmic. It takes a skilled bunch to prepare the cast, the cues, and all the technical aspects of the show. Of course all of it leading up to those very special moments that leave lasting memories in the hearts of all the children watching.

I can't help to think of the preparation all of us must have to create the dreams we have in our hearts. We all have something in life we'd like to achieve. Maybe a passion that's been with us for a long time, or something new we've stumbled upon that means so much to us. Whatever it is, think of the things you can do to prepare yourself for that dream to come true. Because believe it or not, there is no such thing as luck. People like John Lasseter, Steve Martin, or Walt Disney didn't just get lucky, they were great at what they did, and what they wanted to do, and they made sure of it. They were prepared. So whatever your goal in life may be, however far away it may seem, however difficult the path may be, you better start preparing for a dream, because odds are, it just may come true.
