Moonlight over Everest

If there is one thing that is almost as cool as being deep in the Himalayas, then it's being at Disneyland after dark near the Expedition Everest ride. This is probably one of my favorite rollercoasters, and I endeavored to stay here late one night to try to grab the moon in the right spot. The whole area is riddled with excellent little Buddhist offering temples, where you can submit fruits of offering in exchange for the blessing of not tossing your lunch right before the Yeti takes a swipe at your runaway train.


I also got a very nice Twitter message yesterday from a dad who was excited that his kids were getting him my Textures Tutorial for father's day. I thought that was kind of cool and I was flattered! Of course, that means he's going to have to use the techniques to make some memorable photos of his family... This is something that I always hear too... that I don't take enough photos of the family, but I do I do! But I don't think that the grandparents can ever be happy unless I have a webcam on them 24 hours a day like a non-stop grandchild Truman show.
