I think part of what makes New Orleans Square so different than other areas of Disneyland at Christmas is its rich, jewel tone color scheme. I love the way those colors dance across everything in their reach, especially the ground. The night it rained while we were there, it seemed a no brainer to get a shot of the wet pavement glistening from jewel tone Christmas lights aglow. Every time I look at this picture I hear Louis Armstrong singing “It’s Christmas time in New Orleans”. Between Louis and Disneyland, I can’t help but succumb to the joy they both give with a smile. Now all I need is a good ol’ creole beat.
