Blue hour at the Portofino Resort in Orlando, FL...Read More
We recently visited the EPCOT them park in Orlando, FL and I had a great time taking a BUNCH of photos there. Here are 15 photographs that illustrate the beauty of this park. It's like a miniature world tour in one day!Read More
On our recent jaunt to Florida and back, we spent a night in Destin. We had heard about the beaches there and just had to check them out. Check out these photos of a stunning sunset I captured there and get my thoughts on the place as well. Enjoy!Read More
If you find yourself in Orlando, FL be sure and swing by the beautiful Portofino Bay Resort at Universal Studios for a photograph or two. I caught a nice sunset there recently and today I share a collection of photos from that outing. It's a gorgeous place and really looks like Italy!Read More
I caught this sunset in Naples, FL earlier this year. Obviously, it was incredible. That's about all I have to say about that!
First of all, I just want to say THANK YOU to those who continue to visit my site frequently, I really appreciate that. Also, thanks for those of you who leave comments here or on Facebook, as well as the Likes and Shares. I am still enjoying Santa Fe with the family (which you would know if you subscribe to my public updates on FB here - and you could see some iPhone shots there too!), and will be coming home soon with a load of great new pics to share.
Daily Photo: EPCOT's Chinese temple
I love EPCOT, which you surely know if you have visited here much in the past. It's such a great concentration of different cultures that it feels like a quick world tour. Yes, I know it's staged, but having been to many of the places represented there (Germany, Canada, Italy for example) I feel like they do a great job of making you feel like you are really there. I haven't been to China yet, but I bet this is a good representation of it. Well, except for that trash bin. :)
Shooting at EPCOT is just plain fun. It's like a million mini-vacations rolled into one. One minute you are shooting in Japan, then you are in Italy looking at this beautiful scene. Throw in some nice color in the sky at sunset, and it makes for a pretty exciting time with the camera!
Oh, EPCOT. I do enjoy this place. In fact it came up today in a conversation with some friends. By the way, hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. We had a great day today with family and friends - had some good food, ate some candy, hid some eggs, ate some more candy, watched a little Masters golf (great finish) and might have had a little more candy when no one else was looking. But let's keep that quiet, shall we?
Ok, back to EPCOT. It's quite a place, whether you bring a camera or not (but of course you should). I love all the different snippets of culture that they have recreated there - it gives you sort of a mini-whirlwind tour of some great spots. Which reminds me that I am getting ready for a whirlwind tours of sorts as well, real soon. More on that later. You'll have to come back to read about it - and see the photos of course!
Hope you enjoy the photo, and thanks for stopping by!
Oh how I enjoy my visits to EPCOT. It's fun to cram 20 countries and cultures into a few hours, but it does get tiring. The good thing is that when you get tired, you can go find a quiet little spot in a corner, soak up a little more culture, and relax. I had done just that over in the French section of EPCOT and was gearing up for some more photos when this scene caught my eye. It really looks Parisian to me - they do a fine job there of recreating the feel of certain places.
