I started out the last weekend Update Weekend with a photo of the Magic Kingdom’s “Celebrate America” fireworks during the Fourth of July Week Limited Time Magic at Walt Disney World. This week, we’re starting out with a photo Sarah captured at Disney’s Hollywood Studios shot from the end of Sunset Boulevard on the Fourth of July. Recently, Sarah has been sticking mostly to iPhoneography (and sometimes her Sony RX-100), but since we had no photos of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios fireworks before this year, I bribed her into setting up a tripod and using our new Nikon D3200 and Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens to photograph the show, while I shot it from Echo Lake. Truth be told, I like her shots better!
We still have some dining reviews and a review of Saratoga Springs from that trip, as well as a number of fireworks photos, and more from Monstrous Summer at Disneyland in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. In addition to presenting news, announcements, etc., in these Weekend Update blog posts, I’ll try to share a few new photos each week in them.
