No matter where you are in the Parks you can’t help but see balloons. Here’s a unique perspective I captured while looking through a Mickey Mouse balloon on Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland park.

PERFECT shot!!!! We LOVE all things Disney!
Very surreal shot, I love it!
Oh, wow this is VERY cool. I love balloon pictures – so colorful and whimsical
I love this!
A perfect Disney picture – I would frame this!
That is so cool, captured very nice
Creative, nicely framed, depth of field surprisingly good with the reflection and all. Plus, I like purple.
Paul – your work never ceases to amaze me. Fantastic!
I like the unusual shots…
Love the shot. What lens did you use? How about ISO and f/stop and shutter? I’m taking a photo class, and would love to recreate that shot.
Thank you, Samantha. I used one of my favorite lenses, the 70-200 2.8 at 160mm. I set the aperture to 6.3 to get more depth of field, the shutter to 1/400 and the ISO to 320 to stop the movement of the balloon.
Oh wow! I have to go try that out the next time I go to Disneyland! 😀
What an awesome view of Main street! Can’t wait to get back to Disneyland!!!
I want Paul’s job!!!!!!!
Love the photo. Great stuff!
what a great picture!The balloons are part of the experience.On our last trip we splurged and bought our 4 yr. old one,all she wanted and it survived the 7 hr. drive home in the car w/3 kids and stayed inflated for 2 more weeks,well worth the $7 for the joy it brought!
We got a similar shot at Christmastime a few years ago. It my little brother and sister looking into a huge ball on the tree at the end of Main Street and you can see a reflection of Main Street behind them. Very cool.
I have to say Mr. Hiffmeyer that I enjoy all of your photography. But I believe this is my favorite so far. It captures so much about Main Street U.S.A.
