You Capture - Up Close

I have missed participating in You Capture. Up until 2 weeks ago, I was so faithful completing my assignment--and having so much fun with it. But then Life got in the way. Oh, and a vacation too. This week will be a little half-hearted, but I promise I will try to do better next week...already contemplating the topic of Happiness!

So, I only have a couple of photos this week, but they capture a few more sights from our Not Disney Disney Vacation. And I did not use a macro lens for these; I did have it with us on our vacation and intended to use it since I was aware of the macro assignment. Too lazy, I guess!

Here is a close-up of a gigantic piece of African art:

This piece takes up a sizable space in the Animal Kingdom Lodge lobby. We didn't stay there this year but popped over for an African lunch one day. We enjoy looking at the artifacts and other art in the lobby as many of the pieces are from "home".

And, according to our eldest daughter, one of the many reasons we returned to Animal Kingdom was to search for Hidden Mickeys we failed to find last year because we bought the Hidden Mickey book on our second-to-last day and ran out of time. This was the most difficult Hidden Mickey we have uncovered yet. Truth be told, we had to have some help from an employee with this one. Can you see the side profile Mickey?

Here is a colorful Hidden Mickey from a different resort:


Finally, can you guess where this last shot was taken?

i love hidden mickeys, too. and i think that last shot was taken on a monorail arriving at the magic kingdom in orlando :). although i don't recall any mickey balloons, so i could be wrong.

Awesome shots! And that was the half-hearted attempt?

I found the Mickey's. The first one took me a bit. And if I hadn't known he was there I probably wouldn't have found him....
