Picture This #299 ~ Magic Moments

Thank you, Pat for hosting this week and suggesting this theme, Magic Moments. Congratulations on your photo chosen for this week's banner.

I believe that waiting for the curtain to rise on a stage is a magical moment. This photo was taken while we were waiting for Pippin to start. The opening song of the show is "We Got Magic To Do."

I feel that when we encounter creatures in their habitat there is an exhilaration. These seals were close to our boat in Chatham Inlet.

I can't think of any other place that can surpass the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. Here is the fireworks display by the castle.

  1. Robert, what wonderful three pictures you have chosen. You've captured the anticipation and magic that happens in that moment in live theatre before the opening curtain. Your picture seems to glow. And how great to see seals, terrific photograph and a wonderful moment. My favorite is the Disney World picture; I spent a day in Disney Land in California and it really is magic. Fabulous fireworks over the castle.

    1. Thank you, Heidi. The Disney parks have fireworks every evening. I always think the best are the ones close to the castle.

  3. The first photo is really something unique, waiting for the moment for the show to start. I love your seal heads popping out of the water, really a moment in time for the camera and the fairy tale castle is absolutely stunning with the fireworks in the background.

    1. Thank you, Pat. When I read what is this week's theme I remembered the theater experience and taking the photo inside the theater. Pippin has to be one of my favorite shows. The seals in the inlet were numerous and our guide brought as close as possible to them. The Disney experience is always magical even when you're an adult.

  4. Hi Robert!! A wonderful selection of magical moments. It's been many years since I went to a theater, but I do recall that magical moment of anticipation that you've captured so well. Love the shot of the seals. Any moment of seeing wildlife in their natural habitat is magical to me (as you will see on my entry!!). Superb capture of the Disney firework celebration!!

  5. Thanks, Mitch. It's always exciting when the theater lights dim and the overture begins playing. The audience waits for the curtain to rise. This show, Pippin starts with a song with magic in its title. I wished that I had used my telephoto lens instead of the macro when I photographed the seals. The fireworks display is a great way to end a visit to the Magic Kingdom.
