Disneyland Space Mountain >>> WDW Space Mountain

I figured since I copied Tom on this trip, I might as well copy Matt too :P

 

Standing next to me while I took this was Michael Greening aka Ring of Fire Hot Sauce 1. We had met about 30 seconds earlier in the queue, completely at random. He saw my camera, struck up a conversation about photography, and we quickly realized that we had seen each other's work on Flickr before. After the ride, my wife and I had a great conversation with him and his wife. Awesome random encounter!

 

OK so there's no star tunnel music, but it's not even a question for me which Space Mountain ride is superior... and as a bonus, I don't leave this one with bruises on my thighs from cramming my 6'7" frame into the ride vehicle. The Ghost Galaxy overlay was pretty good, too, I'll look forward to riding it without it someday.

    I probably posted it while you were on your trip, but I also posted a similar (different angle) Space Mountain shot from our DLR trip. So I'm going to say you copied me again, too. ;-P

    Nice work! Wish we could've seen Ghost Galaxy.

    The Ghost Galaxy is very cool because it is fun and different but it is best in it's original form. Great shot and that's funny to meet up with Flickr people at random.
