Daily Disney - Future World Monorail

It's hard to get excited about posting a Disney picture in the wake of what happened early yesterday morning. My heart and thoughts go out to the 21 year old boy and his family. The monorail still is and always will be a beautiful thing to me - it's unfortunate when fantasy clashes with reality, especially when reality is ugly. Darn it, people aren't supposed to die at Disney. Hopefully they can understand by way of investigation exactly what happened so something like this will never happen again.

 

Quick Exif:

Exposure: 1/1000

Aperture: f/8

Focal Length: 50mm

ISO: 640

Quick Fact:

One monorail crashed into another around 2 AM on July 5, 2009 resulting in the death of the monorail driver. This was the first such incident in the monorail system's near 38 years of service.

 

Thanks for droppin' by!
