Spires...Radiator Springs Style - Disney California Adventure Park

I finally had an opportunity to photograph Cars Land at night...The only problem being the thousands upon thousands of giddy guests clogging every gorgeous nook and cranny of Radiator Springs.

Despite what might be gathered from my photostream, I am, and always have been a fan of "people pics" at Disneyland and feel that in certain circumstances the human element is essential to telling the story. However, I do not feel that way about DCA's version of Radiator Springs...Why? Because in the film CARS, Radiator Springs is deserted, lonely, and trying to survive away from the crowds the residents so desperately want to come back to their town....Here in DCA's version, the crowds have found the neon oasis and it just doesn't evoke the same feeling as the film with all the people in the shots. This is only MY opinion of course, and I acted accordingly by shooting upwards...Not hard to here as the neon signs are a sight to behold!

I have not been able to stay late yet, waiting for the crowds to thin, but that will change soon I hope!


I love this place, and look forward to each visit like a kid in a candy store!
