Photo of the day: Disney silhouette

disney silhouette

Images of Disneyworld fall into two categories: personal snaps and images that look like they could be used as marketing collateral. I love this image of the Magic Kingdom’s iconic Cinderella Castle towers, taken by Flickr user insEyedout, precisely because it falls into neither camp. It’s too pretty to count as a random snap and too sparse to go in a brochure.

That said, it certainly achieves the aim of advertisement. What better way to encapsulate the deep thrill that Disney’s amusements inspire than to reduce those towers to a silhouette on a horizon? How recognizable is this image to hundreds of millions of people?
