In 2011, while at Disneyland one day I started this project kinda by accident-- I took a sequence of shots of the teacups, then scrolled through them very quickly and thought it looked pretty cool. I decided to take a few more sequences the rest of the day, then when I got home and looked at them, I realized I kinda had something. Over the course of the next 3-4 weeks, I would visit Disneyland about 3-4 times a week, sometimes shooting 1,000+ images, sometimes just observing and watching the light at different times of the day, and other times, just enjoying the Original Magic Kingdom. I captured just over 30,000 frames, narrowed it down to about 8,000 for what I wanted to show, then trimmed it to about 5,000 to fit it under 5 minutes.

Equipment info: Canon 5D mk II; f/1.8 50mm; stored and lightly edited with Adobe Lightroom; cut together with Final Cut Express.

Shout out to James, Amanda, and Jasmine for keeping me company while I'd shoot-- Thanks guys :)
