A Side Glance at the Enchanted Storybook Castle

In photographs, I've noticed that the Enchanted Storybook Castle, at Shanghai Disneyland, tends to have a "blocky" appearance when photographed from the front.  The towers and structure rise up in a way that seems to lack the elegance and organic nature of other castles.  But in person, this effect is minimized, and the castle certainly feels more free flowing as one walks around it. 

It's the movement in and about the castle that is key.  This allows different perspectives and angles that reveal different sides and characters to the castle.  And one of my favorites comes from the side approach, where the castle looks decidedly less stiff in photo and begins to rise more freely and gracefully.  There's a bit of character that reminds me of Disneyland Paris' castle (still my favorite), which is always a good thing.  I like this view because it is so different than the front head-on view.  It's positively magical.
