One of the original attractions from Disneyland’s Opening Day in 1955, the Mark Twain is a scaled-replica of a real Mississippi Paddleboat. It travels the Rivers of America.
Of all the attractions at Disneyland, this is my favorite.
I have been sitting on this image for a very long time. I used the original shot for a piece I titled “Harbinger of the Dark Carnival” that is in my portfolio.
I shot this early one morning while enjoying a latte. The boat was running its morning shakedown cruise and had no passengers.
THIS one needed something. Black and White wasn’t enough, so I added a little sepia-tone to evoke a sense of nostalgia and there it is.
