The different faces of Mickey Mouse @ Disneyland

A visit to Mickeys Toontown @ Disneyland was a sweet reminiscence of those good old cartoon days on Doordarshan.

One of the greatest joys @ Disneyland is to see how children and their smiles brighten up the place. Their utter delight on meeting their favorite cartoon characters in real life! The little girl who kept poking the "Mickey Mouse" to see if he was real and the giggles and laughter after each poke - some memories are better to be lived

An Evening @ The Getty Center

Clear blue skies at noon with whiffs of cotton clouds, a storm approaching in the evening and a golden sunset - a visit to the Getty Center can be rewarding in such conditions.

I love the symmetry I see here, the little patterns, shadows and curves  in this wonderful architecture. 

The Travertine stone — 1.2 million square feet of it— is one of the most remarkable elements of the complex. This beige-colored, cleft-cut, travertine catches the bright  light, reflecting sharply during morning hours, and emitting a honeyed warmth in the afternoon.
