These are just the various images that I have that don’t fit anywhere but are from Epcot. So why not throw them into one big pile and go from there.
Quick Google search gave me the name for this post. It turns out China’s nickname is the Red Dragon. I read it on the internet so it must be true!
I am an admitted lover of Eastern cultures so I may have went a little photo happy in China when I was at Epcot. I really like the color in the East. It’s always so vibrant and all the colors have a meaning. So you recognize the symbology in them. While I have never been to China itself its on my list of places I need to visit. For now, I’ll make do with these images from Epcot.
PS – On the second image spot where I had to remove a rude human from the frame as she clearly did not recognize artistic genius at work.
I had Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus stuck in my head while I was doing these images. It’s one of the most covered songs ever. Even Johnny Cash covered it on one of American Recording albums.
For those of you that are practicing Buddhist’s I recognize that one of these is not Buddha. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Buddhism here is a hint, Buddha was not a fat, happy guy. I just liked the image.
This week will be a Disney week as I finally got off my ass and edited all the images. So it will be an around the world trip by the end. These images represent nothing that is country specific but were shot in “China”. The rest will be very country specific and very obvious. You will also get to see Florida’s weather in all its glory as the light shifted on me throughout the day.
Epcot’s geodesic dome reminds me of moons rising up over an alien planet hence the name. Some say that Orlando, Florida is another world in itself as well so it works for that as well.
I recently bought Noiseless Pro and ran it through these images and pleased with the result. The Macphun tools see a lot of use in my landscape images along with my Nik tools that I often run. Well worth the investment. Noiseless Pro did a much better job of removing noise without sacrificing sharpness and I found I could go back into the image after running it and do a light smart sharpen in Photoshop to get that little bit back that I lost.
For those interested, shot handheld with my Sony RX100M3.
This is the first site you really see when you enter Epcot. This is their geodesic dome that houses future world. The funny thing about this picture is that Disney employs photographers to take your shot in front of it. Seeing how they didn’t really like random people like me walking up and taking their own shots without the privilege of paying so I just ignored them. I felt justified because Disney only uses Nikon’s for their staff. I wanted them to see what a Sony could do! That was my justification.
