Cinderella Castle: Through The Eyes Of A Child

As an adult, one of the the reasons seeing Cinderella Castle is such an emotive experience for me is because of its scope and scale. It is just so domineering and grand off in the distance when viewed from the opposite end of Main Street, and even more magnificent, in all of its ornateness, up close. While Sleeping Beauty Castle has its own quaint charm (yes, it is growing on me), it simply cannot touch Cinderella Castle. For this photo, I wanted to capture how it might look through the eyes of a child: I got down low and used my ultra wide angle lens to exaggerate the scale. I don't recall the first time I saw Cinderella Castle as a child, but I can only imagine it looked something like this, a royal castle towering high into the sky. Even as I view it today, it still retains this jaw-dropping scale.
