Captain Jack Sparrow (Explored)

First off, thanks to everyone for your comments on my photo from yesterday. It was my highest rated Explore so far on flickr and also my first time making the front page!


This shot was a happy accident. We had just walked out of the Pirates gift shop and decided to watch the end of the Pirate Tutorial. I had stayed towards the back of the crowd near the ramp to the stage and was not planning on any photos. When I noticed Captain Jack coming down the ramp to "sneak away" at the end of the show I got this quick photo and then had my nephew stand in front of him for a photo. Never would have thought he would actually stop and pose for the photo but figured it would be the closest we could get to having a photo with him. Since nobody was paying attention to him, he actually stopped and put his arm around my nephew and let me get a few shots off. I think I may have figured out the secret to getting your photo with Captain Jack! Once a few people realized he stopped they came over and he then literally ran away and into a door on the side.


I'll be in Orlando starting tomorrow and won't be back until Monday. The trip is mostly work but I will definitely be getting some photography time in at the parks. Have a great rest of the week and I'll catch up when I get back.
