Lineups to the white ticket tent to the north, to the west and north entrances, and people walking shoulder to shoulder. Police, crowd control and helpers with Christmas-themed attire (not quite elvish of the Santa variety). I decided to walk around the perimeter and then take a streetcar ride somewhere random. (Never been on the new ones.)
Here is a shot of the east entrance. It is empty because the website doesn’t direct people to it. Sorry that I chopped off the “T” of “THE” in the first image. I already pressed myself against the fence across the street and it kind of reflects how lonely the entrance was. There is another angle where I could have taken it but a parked streetcar was in the way, so the second shot is from inside of the streetcar. I purposefully shot it so that you could see the reflection to give you the context. Sorry about the camera shake.
Can’t wait to see what you decide to do with the both of them!
