Fireworks Friday: Crossroads Symphony

Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World

I feel I should apologize now for the constant barrage of Disney pictures but I have never shied away from my love of it so everyone has had plenty of warnings. On Flickr in the Disney photography community, Friday is typically fireworks day. Never been to sure why themed days all have to have alliteration or maybe it is a coincidence but it does help me to remember which day is what theme. 🙂

One of the reasons for the timing of my trip was to catch the end of Epcot’s Flower & Garden show and the first Star Wars Weekend at Hollywood Studios. During each SWW, Hollywood Studios ends each night with a wonderful fireworks show called Symphony in the Stars. Last year a captured the show from behind Echo Lake and this year I wanted to try something different. The general consensus would have been to setup at the end of Hollywood Boulevard but that seemed to predictable to me. I have always loved the Crossroads of the World stand at the front of the park and I was hoping I could incorporate it into the pictures.

My concept was a little off. The fireworks didn’t materialize where I thought they would so my composition for the image in my hard didn’t work. I’m including the best of my pictures anyway. It was a gamble that didn’t pay off for me but I like that I was thinking outside the box.
