Is someone there? (Explore)

This photo is going to be one of those shots that bring back a great feeling each time I look at it.


I took this on my last night visiting the Magic Kingdom. It was a solo evening for me and I wanted to pack a few special things in at the end of the night. First I had a great burger at Pecos Bill. Following that I rode Pirates of the Caribbean…completely alone in the “boat”. How much fun is that, especially if you want to take pics.


Next stop was Aloha Isle for a Dole Whip float. Extended Magic Hours was coming to a close and I decided to make an attempt for Haunted Mansion to cap off the night. I’m fairly certain I was the last person to ride since I got the “escort” out of the area afterwards.


At any rate, having thoroughly enjoyed myself, I started walking out but turned around to soak it in one last time and this is what I saw. It seemed a little stark and spooky to me at the time and I hope I managed to deliver that feeling in the image.


Imagine not only having to make sure all the guests get safely out of their Doom Buggies, but also having the important task of making sure none of those 999 ghosts actually DO follow us home!


Did you hear that? Is someone there?


Watch your head’n’step…and welcome home.
