SpectroMagical Streams of Musical Light – Disney Photo of the Day
Some of you are probably looking at this wondering, “what the heck is this mess of color?!” It’s the SpectroMagic parade at the Magic Kingdom. Well, 33 seconds of the parade as seen in one photo, to be precise. There’s no Photoshop-trickery or anything of that sort here–just what the camera saw in one 33 second “blink.” While I enjoy Main Street Electrical Parade, I really look forward to SpectroMagic’s return next year.
I don’t know if taking photos of things makes you an artist (I personally don’t place good photographers in the same tier as good painters–the latter requires much more talent, in my opinion), but the photos I took on this particular evening are probably the closest any of my photos will ever come to being “art.” I took these shots in August of 2009 after randomly having the idea for the shots while studying for final exams in May of 2009 (graduating was the biggest hit to my photographic creativity–so many ideas came to me while daydreaming during class and while studying). I posted my favorite, second favorite, and third favorite shots from the night shortly after returning from that trip. Somehow, this weekend, while reviewing old shots for a project on which I’m working, I noticed this image, which had previously been completely overlooked! As I like the image quite a bit, I was stunned that I’d never used it anywhere!

There is noticeably big money to comprehend this. I suppose youve made certain nice points in functions also.
Love this shot, Tom. It’s funny, I loved seeing MSEP in California a few years ago, and when they announced its return to MK last year, I was pretty excited.
Now that I’m leaving for my trip next week, I’m kind of sad that I won’t be able to see Spectro! Go figure 🙂
Did they officially announce that Spectro is coming back next year? While I like the MSEP enough, I think Spectro is superior and would LOVE to see it back!
No official announcement, but it came over because California Adventure couldn’t run a parade due to construction (although this was not the stated reason). DCA will be able to show a parade next year, so MSEP will go back there.
Yep, I knew about it moving from DCA. I was actually IN DCA the last night it was shown there. They ran it 3 times that night and people were actually crying!
I can’t wait for them to bring back SpectroMagic….LOVE that parade 🙂
