Ruminations - A "Black & White " Day at Disneyland

One of the goals I set for myself was to try and capture images that might reflect what a typical guest day at Disneyland would have been like using the trusty Brownie Hawkeye. That meant looking for scenes that would fill the bill, out and about the Park.

Unlike other point and shoot cameras of today, getting your photo framed just right with the Hawkeye can be a real challenge. You don't hold it up to one eye and look through the viewfinder. Instead you look down on to the top of the camera and through what is best described as a "cube" to frame the image. The image is the reverse of what you will capture thanks to the simple optics of the viewfinder. That took a bit of getting used to.

Thanks to all those years of photographing trains, a good deal of patience came in handy. There were many times I had to wait for the right moment to push the shutter button. But in the end, the results were well worth the wait.

Starting off at Main Street, we'll head off into Disneyland!


We are indeed "Walking Right Down The Middle of Main Street U.S.A."




Mickey is at the ready greeting guests and signing plenty of autographs today!

The proud sailing ship "Columbia" has the right-of way passing the rafts to and from Tom Sawyer's Island.




It is the true icon of Disneyland - The Sleeping Beauty Castle, as seen from the Plaza Gardens.



Attention Autopia Drivers!


Now what would a day at Disneyland be without at least one visit to a candy shop!




Happy guests? You bet! Lot's of fun here in Fantasyland!


Hope you enjoyed more of these great views of Disneyland with a retro flair. I'll be bringing the Brownie along again this year for more photographs including the gathering of the Colton Clan - all 18 of us in October.

(A special note for David McCartney: I can't reply to your e-mail for some reason. Visit my web pages at privatecarservice.net for other ways to contact me about your question.)

Next week: More glorious Black & White views - The Disneyland Railroad returns with four trains in operation!
