Mickey’s Soundsational Parade

A few weeks ago, I authored a post about the return of “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade”, featuring photos I took with my 35 millimeter lens. This time around I am sharing photos taken with a longer focal length, using a 24-70 millimeter lens. It was great to be able to get more up close with the characters and performers, and really focus on facial expressions — not so much on the entire floats. Big thanks to John AKA DizMagic for lending me his lens so I could take a stab at some character shots. I would definitely love to add a lens like this to my arsenal!
