Out in Force

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a picture of a crowd or crowded event. Conventions, weddings, parties in cramped spaces -- you know, anywhere there's lots of folks doing something.

I've actually posted my best crowd pictures before, from the same trip as the one below. This time out, let's focus on one particular crowd at one particular outdoor show. Where was this taken? Can you tell?

Sharp-eyed readers may have noticed the words Disney and Pixar, the Finding Nemo logo and something that looks suspiciously like a monorail track. Yup, it's Disneyland. But who is the cute guy in the tan costume, and why do people care?

Another angle, a couple of minutes later. We see now that this is Tomorrowland Terrace. No sign of the cute guy in this shot, but do you see one of his enemies? There is a sign to tell us what this is all about, but it's not quite clear yet.

Aha! The cute guy is a Jedi, instructing apprentices at Jedi Academy. Some of the people in the crowd are undoubtedly proud parents, brothers and sisters.

Ah, but where did they go? Have they been vanquished by the enemy? Is it a trap? I actually never got close enough to hear what was going on, but I'm fairly certain the young Jedi won out in the end. Good thing, too! We really don't want Darth Vader and Darth Maul on the loose, taking hostages in the Haunted Mansion, threatening Mickey Mouse, or riding the teacups.
