+Kevin Graham Anyone can post cat pictures.  It takes real talent to show a dog hogging the couch pillows.

Sorry to Scott but I liked the original "smoker" better except maybe the tighter crop.

Cinderella Carriage

I was almost going to name this one The Great Pumpkin.

Disney made this carriage for the live-action movie of the Cinderella story.  Real gold, weighs a bit over a ton.  You may look, but don't touch. Don't even lick it.

I found it sitting at Disney Hollywood Studios on the Streets of America portion of the park.  They have it setup with a PhotoPass photographer and a nice little line for photos.  I was the only goober there with a tripod.

Would have loved to gotten a few feet further back, but that's where the PhotoPass photographer has her tripod set, so it's a bit tight to shoot.

Would have been fun to have Cinderella there along with it, or at least a glass slipper on the stepper.

It's interesting to see what you can do with a camera on your trusty iPhone. 

Right, +Kalebra Kelby?

The shot of Dubai is pretty cool.
Incredible photos and videos shot by iPhone 6 users.

+marc strong Some people do still build using Flash and other tools that aren't mobile friendly, but then there are sites that were built years ago that haven't been updated.  They aren't really doing anything wrong that would get them slapped by Panda/Penguin, but this change will hurt them.

A bit cute and kind of awesome that the music still matters.

Lol. I didn't make any comments about the children - who did a fantastic job on this. I'm more so thinking ahead because at some point Led Zepplin and music from that genre will no longer be thought of the same way as we do today, just the same way as it's not viewed the same as it was 40 years ago.

$500 Camera on a $1500 Tripod

I tried an HDR experiment using my Nikon Coolpix P7000 instead of my D700.

It is Not New

Perhaps our elected officials need to walk around Washington D.C.'s monuments to learn from history. They can start with FDR.

This is not an inexpensive place, but they provide a very nice, modern and clean facility. There's a customer cafe inside (though it always seems closed when I visit). My main reason for coming here is service, as it is the nearest dealer around for Dodge. On my recent visit, I had a problem with an indicator light. Turns out some fuzzy rodent was chewing on the cables. That, along with a recommended system upgrade, cost nearly $500. They replaced the cables and the warning lights went away. On the other hand, my Cruise Control no longer works. I called and will have to drop off my car again for this repair. They don't offer any loaner vehicles or have a rental service nearby, but there's a shuttle service until 5:00pm. For those of us who work util 5:00, it means cutting some corners at the office to use it. Honestly, I expected them to test everything before my vehicle was returned to me. The fact that I now have to drop it off again and sit at home waiting for them to repair something they screwed up is annoying. There's no charge for them to fix their screw-up, but there's also no recompense for the inconvenience.

I stayed there during a Christmas vacation. The enormous lobby really sets the mood. Great wood texture, the service is outstanding and I enjoyed the restaurants. The rooms were functional and not bad, but not great. For the highly cost of $330, I actually expected a bit more luxury from one of Disney's top flight hotels. Instead, it was just another hotel room at an enormous price. That part was a big letdown as far as value for the price paid. It's by no means a bad place. The room just didn't rate as high as the price.

I usually like Chipotle's for a quick meal, but this one had the lowest food quality that I've ever experienced. I don't know if it's because of their food storage or if they have lower quality suppliers than other locations. The meal was edible, but not fresh or delicious. I'd rather drive further to another Chipotle's than visit this location again.

The nice thing about getting a sandwich in a bakery is that the bread is always fresh and there are plenty of options. In fact, you're overloaded with bread because there's another piece of bread served with your meal. It's especially great when you get a piece fresh out of the oven - you know, the kind where "hot" comes out when you bite into it. They usually put a sourdough as the extra piece, but you can ask for a multigrain bread if you prefer. The soups are OK, but nothing to rave about. The bagels are pretty decent and there are a plethora of sweets in the front of the shop. I'm a bit annoyed with the Green tea instead of the traditional Orange Pekoe for my iced tea, but I guess they think that's trendy or something. It's a decent place for a quick meal. Not quite as healthy as many folks think, but it's a change from burgers, wings or pizza.
