Photo Tuesday: A Brick in Ming’s Tomb – Beijing, China

On September 21, 2010, in Photography, by John Giaconia

The name of the manufacturer stamped into a brick at Ming’s Tomb, near Beijing, China. I believe this was done so that if the brick was found to be inferior, they knew where to place the blame.

Bell Rock – Sedona, Arizona, originally uploaded by DonGiaconia.

On our way from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon, my mom and I stopped briefly in Sedona to take in the majestic red rocks. I couldn’t get over how brilliantly red the rocks are. It’s an amazing place to visit.

Ahoy down there! For this week’s Photo Tuesday, we have a waterfall frozen in a nautical night shot. This shot is of one of the Finding Nemo Nautilus Submarines passing through the waterfall at the end of the Finding Nemo attraction at Disneyland. This picture was taken at night with the help of the handrail to steady the shot.

Paradise Pier Reflected, originally uploaded by DonGiaconia.

I took this shot from the Boardwalk while waiting for the World of Color to begin. It was one of those ‘Take 30 Shots and hope one of them comes out clear’ situations.

This picture was taken during my trip for Disneyland’s 55th anniversary weekend. While waiting to get onto the Matterhorn (which took quite a bit to convince my dad that it didn’t flip or have any crazy drops to make him lose his stomach) along came Monorail Blue. It’s amazing how much quieter the Mark VII monorails are than previous models.
