One of the suspensions bridges on the Nature Trails in Oasis, Disney's Animal Kingdom. Barrie Brewer wanted to test the action settings on her camera and asked me to jump up and down on the bridge. Good times. :)

It's Miss Piggy dress as the Statue of Liberty at the fountain in front of Muppets 3D! My niece always gets us together for a family photo here! A lot of you said the same. :)

Herb Miller, I don't remember the scrolling sign that said, "K-E-R Are you ready? M-I-T That's a school in Massachusetts"! Is that still there?

Morgan M, coins thrown into all the Disney fountains are donated to charities such as employees' volunteer fund, Disney's Wildlife Conservancy fund, Quest Inc, etc.

The Ice Cold Snack Stand in Disney's Hollywood Studios, on your right as you enter the park. It's with Oscar's Service Station which rents strollers, wheelchairs, and ECV scooters as so many of us know. :)

This stand holds special memories for Patty Carty, Mickey Eckert, and Janet Thorn. I'm glad seeing this brought those back for you. :)

Where in the World #226

Where in the World by Erin Blackwell

To all who come to this photo trivia game, Welcome! Along the way, the photos can make us relive memories and see details Walt's Imagineers put into everything we love in Walt Disney World!

We have another Birthday celebration, Players! Happy Birthday (on the 19th) to Patti Mccaffrey! May you have nothing but pixie dust and happy thoughts this year!
Hold on: we have ANOTHER Birthday shout out! Happy Birthday (on the 21st) to Danielle Ciotti Harsley! May the Blue Fairy herself make your wishes come true!

That's it, Players. Come on, we can't let this special occasion go by without a group sing-a-long!

Smiley from millan.net

AND we have a new Player! Everybody, all together now, with a big friendly hello:

Hello and Welcome, Vicki Britt! We hope you love it here at Where in the World Photo Fun!

Smiley from millan.net

(Good job, everyone! Way to jump in with that Disney spirit!)

By the way, Vicki: it's not like this every week - birthday singing, welcome wagons. I just don't want you to be disappointed next week if it's... you know... quieter since we don't sing all the time. We're not "Glee". :-)

OK! It's time to look at our Challenges!

The Bonus Challenge maybe wasn't really TOUGH, but at least it was fun!

 Where in the World Toughie

And here's its answer:

Look at me, Players! I'm inside a cluster of Disney Balloons! I was walking down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and had to stoop to pick up something. When I stood up, I was inside the balloons! It's a magical world!

I worded the answer differently, Brian Mcwithey, but yours was funnier!

Those light-up balloons are calling us, Mackenzie D.... hear them? You know, we could get one and then, when we can't take it on the plane home, give it to someone who looks like they need Disney spirit. What do you think?

Lots of people got this one right! So I'm giving you full credit and you'll get an additional entry in the monthly drawing . :)

Here are the Balloon winners:
Congratulations to Diane Ramos, Daniel Record, Kerri Coggins, Double Family, Teresa Plunkett, Mary Beth Tarbet, Elizabeth And Vicki Edwards, Josh Weiss, Courtney Payne, Deme Grabert, Amy Weber, Renee, Ellen Sullivan, Diane Curfman, James And Kathy Berry, Sharon Dale, Chris Kelly, Jennifer Chartier, Jim Thompson, Doug Olson, Megan Krainski, Patti Mccaffrey, Eva O., Erin Connell, Kerry Mccaffrey, Audra Miller, Kevin Miller, Brian Mcwithey, Michelle Goodwin, Jeff Holt, Les Stewart, Christopher Hall, Frank Pierce, Patrick B., Carri Marotto, Dan Owens, Al Desimone, Debbie Desimone, Mackenzie D., Shelly Borella, Jen Tremley, Heidi Goodhue, Sandra Shaw, Jennifer Rowell, Mickey Eckert, Christine, Mike Pennington, Barclay Bakkum, Jeremy Mccaffrey, Sandra Edwards, Tina Santillo, Agnes Ciotti, Monica Owens, Margie Larmon, Emily Hudson, Stefan Owens, Pecosace, Rob And April - Team Vanderpool, and Kathryn Willer!

And here's the answer:

Copyright © 2011 Erin Blackwell Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS, 11mm, 1/20s shutter, f5, ISO 1600

It's a Disneyland Viewmaster Disk in the Toy Story Mania queue in Disney's Hollywood Studios! Ah, Vewmasters.... Good times, noodle salad. (Who knows what movie that quote is from?)

But I don't have to tell you, do I, James and Kathy Berry? Not with your son's Mickey Viewmaster in the attic. Or you, Christopher Hall, with your 4 year old son getting that load of old WDW and Disneyland viewmaster reels from Grandma? Or Vicki Britt, you remember what it was like when we had Disney Viewfinders, and Melissa Kirk, you who have this Disneyland disk at home! I'm just going to sit over here and sigh with envy...

Challenge #226: Where in the world is this?

So, the toughies were really just mediums. So, let's see what I can find to challenge you, hopefully. Is this a tough one? What if I don't say where we are, parks or outside?

Where in the World #224

Where in the World by Erin Blackwell

To all who come to this photo trivia game, Welcome! Along the way, the photos can make us relive memories and see details Walt's Imagineers put into everything we love in Walt Disney World!

Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating the holiday today!

Thank you, Vera Williams and Sophia, for your nice notes! I'm so glad you enjoy Where in the World; it wouldn't exist without all of you. :)

Glad to hear the school trip went well, Don Whiteman, for you and your 151 kids! THAT's a Happy Gathering! :)

Alan Mize, what an interesting question, thanks! I read every response that comes in each week, not a program to scan the answers or the whole photo blogger staff. If you're interested, each response get added to a main file that I download and import into a spreadsheet. I then read what each of you has sent (thanks again, Players, for being here each week!): on the first pass, I mark who has it right, who got it first, and the people who send person notes that I will answer. I grab the winners to put into the announcement and also copy them to a separate sheet for the entire month for when I pick the monthly winner. On the second pass, I see who I marked as personal notes to answer. Then I type up the post and get a photo for the next Challenge.

Here was last week's Challenge:
 Where in the World #223

And here's the answer:

Copyright © 2011 Erin Blackwell Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS, 12mm, 1/40s shutter, f5, ISO 800

OOO, what's on the television at The 50's Prime Time Cafe? That's the restaurant's official name, but Quincy Delcolletti and I call it Mom's.

Not did I keep my elbows off the table and ate all my veggies, Cousins Herb Miller, Matt Holley, Mike & Susan Hill, Robert Anderson, Chris Gallagher, Karen Schlumpf, Steve Knapp, Jared Orth, and Tom Buck, but I drew Mom a picture so she could put it on the refrigerator. :)
Beth Mcmeekin, I so agree with your son that pistachio pudding is the best green food; and it has pistachios, so that's healthy, like veggies, right? ;)

A lot of people said this was a favorite Disney restaurant, like Noah Schweizer. Me too. :)
Thanks to Kelli Sangston, I really want a peanut butter and jelly shake! And Quincy Delcolletti, thanks for the s'mores craving I have now. LOL!

I thought this was going to be a medium to difficult challenge, but you guys surprise me like always! We had 329 winners! And they are:

Lauren Thomas was the first to send in the correct answer! Congratulations to Lauren and to all the readers who got the answer right: Clare S, Danielle Ciotti Harsley, Bruce Jones, Theresa Rucando, Agnes Ciotti, Linda College, The Kahle Family, Kris Nixon, The Strukel Family, Ethan Johansen, Ken Jackson, Herb Miller, Chris Masse, Linda Scrivano, Matt Holley, Craig, Sharon Pierce, Don Whiteman, Mike O'brien, Wendy T Faler, Larissa Huda, Rachel Hall, Michael Geary, Amy Schweizer, Jennifer Rowell, Leigh Mertz, Leach Family, Allie Foster, Donna Veazey, Jennifer Cole, Bethanne Graustein, Martha Moore, Lindsey Nozal, Kathryn Willer, Kathy Rubin, Michael Phillips, Maureen Handy, Heather Johnson, Christine, Axel Beer, Paul Dickson, Misty Lyons, Dawn Fiege, Lauren Proutt, Allison Parkin, Debbie Boehm, Rob Blundin, Angela Johnson, Jacquelyn Law, Lindsay Downing, Erick Jauregui, Josh Weiss, Bill Cudney, Sara Colwell, Jenn Goad, Ana Blackwell, Rich Esker, Desiree Soppick, Courtney Payne, Claire Gregory, Gee, all these mentions on Where in the World are making me blush ) Thanks for all your hardwork and based on all the names I saw on the list this week, my hands were cramping up for you.

Hi to the Hoekzema Family! Thanks for the nice note!

Diane Ramos, I knew you feel all our warmth and magic as we waved Bon Voyage to you!

Here was last week's Challenge:
 Where in the World #219

And here's the answer:

Copyright © 2011 Erin Blackwell Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS, 14mm, 1/100s shutter, f5, ISO 100

I need the children of Paul Dickson, Doug Olson, and Scott Cullen, plus Deb Ragno's granddaughters, to draw closer. Because you, like Hunter Armstrong, Clint Curfman, David Blevins, Tommy And Kelli Sangston, knew this answer right away! Your parents and grandmother might win the monthly drawing because of you! (Kerry Mccaffrey, thanks for bailing out your sister Patti too. ;)

It's Ducky Momo at the Phineas and Ferb Meet and Play Experience in Disney's Hollywood Studios! Specifically, it's a large recreation of Candace's beloved Ducky Momo plush!

Mackenzie D., the families that love Phineas and Ferb together, rock together!

Tina Santacroce and Chris Stockton, please lead us in the Ducky Momo song since you so nicely sang it in your answers:

Ducky Mo
Ducky Momo (Quack quack quack!)
Ducky Mo
Ducky Momo (Quack quack quack!)
Ducky Mo
Ducky Momo (Quack quack quack!)
He's your very best friend!
Who's the happy-time toy toy
For every girl and boy boy
Who's the fuzzy enjoyment
Make fun with Ducky Momo!
Ducky Mo
Ducky Momo (Quack quack quack!)
He's your very best friend! (Quack quack quack!)

EVERYONE got this right! I think that's a new record!! Good for you, Players!

Where in the World #216

Where in the World by Erin Blackwell

Smiley from millan.netGuess what, Players! I need you to think back to one year ago. What happened then? Hmmm..... oh yeah! I joined you on Where in the World Photo Fun! That's right, it's my one year anniversary hosting-posting-never able to fill Barrie Brewer's shoes here! Can you BELIEVE it? Me either!

Hi, Ken Maikowski! Thanks for the question! I get a different number of answers every week; it depends on the picture. This week, I had 281 people send in answers; last week, I had 48. One week, we had over 500! We have tripled in the amount of players since the game started, which is a HUGE thrill to all of us! So thank you to Kerri Coggins, Jeffrey Botelho, and all of you for supporting us each week!

Whoo hoo, Caroline Burmester is back!

Here was last week's Challenge:
 Where in the World #215

And here's the answer:

Copyright © 2011 Erin Blackwell Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS, 4mm, 1/40s shutter, f2.7, ISO 800

The start of the Yellow Brick Road in Munchinkinland! Courtesy of the Great Movie Ride in Disney's Hollywood Studios! And thanks to Tiffany Gibb, Steve Jordan, and Danielle Ciotti, I've been singing the song all day!

Follow the yellow brick road
Follow the yellow brick road...

Kerrie Hogan, you were so probably RIGHT this week! Booyah! And Rob Vanderpool, that was just the right amount of information. :)

Janet Fosbender, I need you, your daughter, and Andrew Loft to come over here: there ARE some scary things in this ride like aliens, the Witch threatening to get us and our little dog too. So let's hold hands and get through this together... ready? OK, don't let go, 'cause the skeletons scare the beejeezus out of me. (you can also help me look for the hidden C3PO and R2-D2; I can't get a picture of it. Maybe you can.)

We're off to see the Wizard!
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!

Darn you, Tiffany, Danielle, and Steve!

Pam Tees, I'm so glad you like the picture! And James And Kathy Berry, new scenes in the Great Movie Ride would be awesome! Oh look, Kerry and Patti Mccaffrey just HAD to point out they were just in Disney on this ride. LOL! :)

Agnes Ciotti, did it work when you clicked your heels 3 times and said, "There's no place like Disney!"? Because if it did, I'm getting a pair of ruby slippers and joining you!

Wait a minute: Elaine Tomko-deluca, your son, when he was little, wrote a story where Dorothy took the Red Brick Road for a change? I give that a standing ovation! Good for him for creativity and thinking outside the box!

Virginia Pierce was the first to send in the correct answer for the second week in a row! Congratulations to Virginia and to all the readers who got the answer right: Virginia Pierce, Chris Masse, Sharon Pierce, Jennifer Harmon, Barbara Ajak , Debbie Desimone, Tim Jeltes, Brian Haas, Julie Wickware, Maureen Handy, Al Desimone, Kathryn Perkins, Russ Morgan, Victor Gonzalez, The Kahle Family, Team Hill, Judy Koslowski, Caryn Schill, Peter Strukel, Jamie K, Brian Yesutis, Tim Johansen, Kye Layton, Larissa Huda, Nicole Ruzinski, Kris Nixon, Matt Holley, Dale Knight, Dee Dee Kenney, Kenny, Leigh Mertz, Emily Hudson, Billy Wills, Chris Wallace, Don Whiteman, Maryann Eckenrode, Jonathan Hommel, Bill Mckim, Richard Memmory, Scott Cullen, Belicia Cullen, Tim Wingfield, Josh Weiss, Jacquelyn Law, Vicki Edwards, Angie Young, Hannah Couture, Doublefamily, Dave Wang, Freya Schmidt, Lori Rienhardt, Mary Beth Tarbet, Shelly Metcalfe, The O'meara Family, Dawn Bach, Les Whitten, Heather Young, Scott Otis, Patty Carty, Michael Smart, Aaron Harpel, Jen Cerce, Linda Scrivano, Ken Jackson, Craig, Dawn Burns, Troy Parker, Ruth Woodhouse, Jonah Rigby, Matt Degrandis, Paul Dickson, Denise Cayz, Erin Dagney, Christine Dagney, Curtis Bille, Kerri Coggins, Jared Orth, David, Michael Kertes, Jimi Mac, Tracy, Bruce Hinterleitner, Betsy Silvestri, Katie Bray, Tracy Discher, Sharon Dale, Penny, Lauren Thomas, Janet Fosbender, Paulnewman, Hoekzema Family, Jerry Felder, Tiffany Gibb, Kerry A., Bob Destephano, Pam Tees, Rob Blundin, Donna Currier, Erin Rix, James And Kathy Berry, Mary Virginia Clause, Vera Williams, Patrick Broaddus, Pollyanna Buff, Rick Shea, Steve Jordan, Kelsi B., Chris Kelly, Jacquelyn Law, Christopher Linscott, Sam Fritz, Suzanne Denham, Victoria Caputo, Mike O'brien, Paul Knott, Mike Walter, Ashley Hill, Barbara Sims, Brian Miller, Teresa Murray, Beth Mcmeekin, Ed Suscreba, Jodi Cook, Jennifer Lalli, Christie Condit, Evanna Huda, Stephanie Visco, Rick R., Wade A.

Where in the World #212

Where in the World by Erin Blackwell

We have a birthday boy amongst us! Happy 8th Birthday, Noah Schweizer!

Hey, look! The Patterson Family is back from Walt Disney World! How did the surprise announcement go at Christmas?!

Patty Carty and her family just got back too and they met Team AllEars! And very nicely told them about playing Where in the World! THANK YOU!

Did the team tell you they raised over $67,000 for Deb's Breast Cancer Fund? Booyah!

Jennifer Harmon and Gabriella & Matthieu, you all wrote such wonderful notes and made my day a Disney one. Thank you SO much!

Diane Ramos, good luck to your daughter! I have friends who have worked in the College Program and I can tell you: she will work hard, but it will be a fantastic experience she will treasure! I know you're proud: she is about to be one of the Magic makers!

Mike Venere, don't you jinx the SJ weather! Because I'm already demanding Spring get here! :)

Here was last week's Challenge:
 Where in the World #211

And here's the answer:


Copyright © 2011 Erin Blackwell Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS, 4mm, 1/500s shutter, f8, ISO 400

It's the Coca-Cola Cool Set at Disney's Hollywood Studios! The refreshment kiosk with the large 6 pack of bottles and, as Curtis Bille said, the "single bottle where the cap flips up and you can get a nice Cool Spray on a hot day"! You can see the cloudy weather in this case, so I didn't go through the mist, unlike Amy Schweizer's son who would have ran through no matter what! Because they are what, Jeremy Reichelt? "SWEET SWEET RELIEF!" :)

Glug Glug to you too, Danielle Ciotti Harsley! ;)

I love me some Coca-Cola too, Laurie Walker. Not Beverly though, bleah! Am I right? Betsy Moquin and Shannon Thomas agree with me: yuck! But AllEars' Mike Scopa would say no; he beat a bunch of us at an AllEars meet in a Beverly drinking contest. He had 21 cups! I stopped at one. LOL!

James And Kathy Berry reminded me to think of a Coke float, so now I am. And craving one. Mmmmmm, Coca-Cola float.....! You know what I mean, right Patti Mccaffrey? You and your Coca-Cola Christmas tree and your dad who worked there for 30 years? Believe me, lots of players like me would love for your dad to hook us up! (Hey, have you started packing yet?)

Mary Beth Tarbet was the first to send in the correct answer for the challenge!

Where in the World #204

Where in the World by Erin Blackwell

Spring Smith, you have a Zip A Dee Doo Dah week too! The same for Allison Burgess, Mary Greger, and Lily-pierre Couet for their wonderful messages! (So it's YOUR world, is it Lily-pierre? I hope you don't mind me borrowing it in December. ;) )

Kathy Berry, you'll be there in two weeks? Me too! I hope I see you at some of the AllEars December to Remember events!

Mike Venere, life down my way of the BHP is fine. As long as I remember those new light cameras. LOL!

To all those celebrating in America, Happy Thanksgiving! And I shouldn't have missed the Canadian Thanksgiving in October.... I hope you had a great one!

Hey, good question: do we have anyone playing Where in the World from other countries besides USA and Canada? Let me know and I will happily fly all the flags of our players next week!

Here was last week's Challenge:
 Where in the World #203

And here's the answer:


Copyright © 2006 Erin Blackwell FinePix S3000, 6mm, 1/450s shutter, f/8.2, ISO 100

It's the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster in Disney's Hollywood Studios!

I thought I was going to stump people with this one, and I clearly didn't since we had 264 winners. LOL! Many of you wrote this is your favorite ride as well as Aerosmith being so popular! Plenty of you recognized even the whammy bar picture in the photo, Ed Suscreba even knew which knob it was, Curtis Bille knew it's a Les Paul, and Mackenzie D. even knew the technical term for them: "dial thingies". Way to go, Mackenzie! :)

Here's to all the guardians of the Coaster courtyard people like Patti Mccaffrey and Kathy Berry. Say hi to my husband; he'll be there too. :-)

Kudos to Herb Miller and John & Tracey Roerty for their Spinal Tap "Shame it doesn't go up to 11" reference! High five on that one, but let's be sure we don't trample on Stonehenge as we do it. ;)

The foot of the AT-AT walker at Star Tours, Disney's Hollywood Studios. Oh no, who is that poor soul about to be crushed? LOL! [Right before this was taken, a group of guests thought I was mannequin prop for the ride. ;) ]

Walt Disney's private plane! As some of you pointed out to me, it is a Grumman G-159 Gulfstream 1, serial number 121. As they tell you on the Backlot Tour: "That Gulfstream 1 was known in airports across the country as November Two Three Four Mickey Mouse. But we just call it The Mouse." You can also see it as you walk to your seats for Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show.

Focus on Disney World - June Calendar

If you read my December 25, 2007 blog, you know that my holiday gift to you is that each month I will post a photo calendar page that you can print out and use at home or work during 2008.

Surprise! Two calendars in one month! Several people asked on our survey that I post the calendars sooner. Well, your wish is my command. I'm jumping ahead so that you can have more time to add appointments, birthdays, etc. to your calendar before the start of the month. Now you'll have about six weeks lead time instead of two.

Thank you very much to everyone who completed our survey. We were thrilled with the number of responses we received. We really appreciate all the feedback and recommendations. If you didn't get a chance to weigh in, or if you ever have anything you want to share with us, please use the comment link at the bottom of each post. We love hearing from you!

You may recognize this as the Sorceror's Hat from Disney's Hollywood Studios. Some people love it and some hate it. To me it's just another cool thing to photograph!


You will need to have Adobe Reader on your computer to download the calendar(s). Just click on the photo to download the calendar you want.


This one prints out at 8.5" x 11". It's handy if you need a calendar that you can write on.

This one prints out at 4.75" x 4.75", the perfect size for a CD Jewel Case frame.

Focus on Disney World - May Calendar

If you read my December 25, 2007 blog, you know that my holiday gift to you is that each month I will post a photo calendar page that you can print out and use at home or work during 2008.

This photo of Buzz Lightyear was taken during the Stars and Motor Cars Parade at Disney's Hollywood Studios. That parade has now been replaced with Block Party Bash which debuted on March 14, 2008. Check out Mike Scopa's Parade Moving 101 blog for a great article on what it takes to move a parade more than 2,000 miles.

Back to old Buzz though... the trick to getting a photo like this during any of the parades is to think about the lighting. Start by scoping out your location in advance. Make sure you aren't looking into the sun. If the sun is directly behind your subject you will have a hard time seeing them because of the backlighting. They will show up as a silhouette or, in the very least, be dark and hard to see.

The best spot will have the sun a little to the side of you, on the same side that the parade is coming from. This way, the cast members won't be looking into the sun when they look at you, which means you'll get more face shots.

Second, make sure your subject won't fall under the shadow of a large building or tree. Even dappled shade isn't that great. It will cast shadows on your subject that could make the difference between a really great photo and just an ok shot. Now unfortunately, this means that you will probably also have to stay out of the shade - but as my mother always said, "we have to suffer for beauty"! I don't think she was talking about photography, but it fits.

Finally, and I know this seems silly but, use your flash. Even on a bright, sunny day a flash will help to fill in any stray shadows that may occur - like the shadow from a big costumed hand waving at the crowd.


You will need to have Adobe Reader on your computer to download the calendar(s). Just click on the photo to download the calendar you want.

And here's the answer:
Toluca Legs Turkey Co.
Copyright © 2007 Barrie Brewer, Nikon D50, 18-200VR, 1/400s shutter, f10

I don't think I'll ever get used to guests walking around the parks, gnawing on giant turkey legs! I haven't tried one myself, but I have friends who consider this a "must do" when they are at Walt Disney World. Belicia Dawson was the first one to let me know that Toluca Legs Turkey Company is located in Disney's Hollywood Studios. That's the answer to challenge #34.

Congratulations to all the readers who knew the answer to this past week's contest and sent it in before the end of Thursday: William Ellis, Michelle Ellis, Jennifer Schwing, Hollie Hinton, Marie Hodur, Holley Blyler, Bryan Timko, Wendy Cacka and JR Cacka. Each of you will be entered in the April winner's drawing.

Brandy White was the first one to send in the correct answer this week. Brandy knew right away that our photo was from Muppet Vision 3D at Disney's Hollywood Studios. These are the Great Gonzo Stunt Props from the pre-show area. I'd really like to know what's in the box of really weird stuff right below it!

Focus on Disney World - Rockin' Roller Coaster

Rockin' Roller Coaster
Copyright © 2007 Barrie Brewer, Nikon D50/18-200VR, 1/400s shutter, f10

In my last tip I talked about deciding whether to orient your pictures either vertically or horizontally. Take a look at this photo of the guitar outside of the Rockin' Roller Coaster at MGM Studios. Is this a vertical or horizontal composition?

That was actually a trick question - it's neither! If you look closely you will see that the building behind the guitar appears to be slanted, but trust me, it wasn't. It was my camera that was slanted. Sometimes, an unusual angle is better suited to your subject.

I wanted this photo to have a very specific look. The subject of the photo was the guitar and I wanted to emphasize the size of it. When I composed the shot I started out holding my camera vertically but then I tipped it to line up the guitar strings with the left edge of my viewfinder. I had to move both the camera and myself around quite a bit to get just the right angle. I wanted to get some of the piano keys in the photo but not the railing that is in front of them. I wanted the name of the coaster to show in the photo and I wanted the neck and strings to extend beyond the edge of the photo, near the corner, but not centered on it.

It took a little effort to get everything just right but it was worth it because I am happy with how it turned out in the end. Try taking some of your photos at different angles. You may end up with some interesting results.

And here's the answer:
Public Works
Copyright © 2007 Barrie Brewer, Nikon D50/18-200VR, 1/400s shutter, f5.3

You'll see the logo for Hollywood Public Works all over Disney's MGM Studios (soon to be changed to Disney's Hollywood Studios). This goofy guy is one of the Streetmosphere actors who entertain guests along Disney's streets of Hollywood. Although many people correctly guessed that this photo came from MGM Studios, Amanda Campbell was the first person to reference the Streetmosphere performers. Congratulations Amanda, you're this week's winner!

Check out this link for an interesting article on the History of Streetmosphere.

lcm
Copyright © 2006 Barrie Brewer, Nikon D50/55-200, 1/1000s shutter, f4.0

This laundry line comes from the set of the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show at Disney-MGM Studios. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this show. Having seen the Indiana Jones stunt show I wasn't expecting to be wowed but was I ever wrong. I loved this show! Even though I'm not a big fan of car chase scenes in the movies, it was really fun to learn how those scenes are created. There are some fun surprises in the show. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, be sure catch it on your next trip. You won't be sorry.
