A few weeks back I was driving in Sarasota near my home and the sky starting putting on an unusual display of colors and shapes. Lucky for me I had a camera. In Florida we're heading into summer which means the beginning of the rainy season. Of course it's great for agriculture and gardens, but also it's good for photography because we're more likely to get crazy clouds in the sky. A few of the local TV stations post photos of sunsets sent in by viewers each day. So it seems to me there is an army of people out there with camera in hand looking at the clouds and sky. Count me among them.
We're not in Kansas anymore. That's an understatement if I do say so myself, which I just did. We arrived here after two days to travel just as the southern hemisphere celebrates autumn. One look tells me we're in for a sensory overload. First the bad news. Theres no way the beauty of this place can be conveyed in pictures. Now the good news, I'm going to try. Maybe I got the good news bad news reversed, but I digress. I took a short walk around dusk and was presented with compositions at every turn, this being one. From way down under, I wish everyone a beautiful weekend, be it spring or autumn.
I shot this last month when we visited Epcot center and decided to take our time walking out of the park. That way I could capture a few shots of the architecture without the crowds like this in the Italian pavilion. I thought I was being pretty smart but have since learned that if you stay in one of the Disney resorts there is a package that entitles you to after hour access to the park. That sounds like a lot of fun, especially not worrying about being hurried out by a security guard. Might have to try that one day.
