darthmaz314 Disney Snapshot of the Day - The Partners Statue in Front of Cinderella Castle

The darthmaz314 Disney Snapshot of the Day today spotlights one of the most photographed images on Earth; the "Partners" statue with the backdrop of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. If you have ever stood in this section of the Magic Kingdom for five minutes on a busy afternoon and counted how many people wait to capture this iconic image, you will be astounded. Walt Disney World is practically oozing with picture perfect photo ops like this and this one tops the list. 

Equally captivating during day or nighttime, this subject negates the notion of a "one and done" picture taking experience. If you are a repeat visitor to WDW, it is good bet that you have a series of photos of this image, as each time you attempt to capture a different nuance, a better angle, a tighter composition, a variation on the ambient lighting...whatever. These are all just excuses. They are attempt to capture something. What? Well, that is probably different for all of us. Is it "Disney magic, pixie dust, or any of the other Disney cliches?" Is it a glimpse of the wide-eyed exuberance of youth? Is it real-life manifestation of American idealism and hope? Who knows? And that...is exactly the point....
