Day 4: "I'm going to Disney World!!"

One of my biggest flaws in life is that I'm a perfectionist. I think it's one of the reasons my Project 365 often fails, because I have this one amazing shot in mind and when it doesn't happen exactly how I planned for it, I get frustrated and give up. Well, I'm glad I didn't let today be one of those days.

I had the perfect spot for the Super Bowl cavalcade through the Magic Kingdom, right smack dab in front of Cinderella Castle. I had the perfect picture in my mind, of Aaron Rodgers in his red Camaro, smiling and waving with the Castle in the background. Little did I know exactly how fast that Camaro moved and that Mickey Mouse would be hogging the spotlight! I made my way toward the front of the park hoping to catch a glimpse as he headed backstage. I thought about leaving the park, disappointed, but there was a mass exodus going toward the monorail so I headed back to Tomorrowland to ride Space Mountain before I left.

And boy am I glad I did.

There was a crowd of people over by the rose garden, off to the side of the castle, so I decided to peek my nose over there to see what I could see. Unfortunately, I was behind a bush, but I was able to make my way to the other side where a lady let me peek in and see a little bit, but I could never get a good shot, with all the media surrounding him. After awhile, she left and the cameramen stepped aside and I took a few decent pictures from afar. I was going to continue on my way to Space Mountain, but I stopped a little further down the way and was actually able to catch him being escorted off stage. So I ran like hell and found a little opening behind a trash can and was able to get the best shot of the day as he walked past.
