Coming and Going

Epcot, Walt Disney World

I’m three weeks away from my next trip to Walt Disney World. After my last visit I wasn’t positive if I would be returning this year but being a cheap SOB I wanted to get my money’s worth from my annual pass, hence the upcoming trip. I haven’t visited the parks in the middle of summer so this should be interesting.

Looking through some of my older images I came across a series I captured of Monorail Green at Epcot. There were two images, one approaching, one leaving, with Spaceship Earth in the middle. I threw those two into Photoshop and combined them to created something impossible to see.

Closing Time

Rome, NY

After photographing the beautiful sunrise on Sunday I went to the other extreme on Monday night, photographing building after sunset. I’ve had this thought for some images of building at night and last night was the perfect one to try it out. Luckily, the new place is within walking distance of a few good ones to practice on. I walked down the street after 9pm and set up in front of a few buildings with various lighting conditions to work out what I would need to capture. I think I still have a little more work to do and to be honest the post-processing on this one took a turn I didn’t expect… I like it as an HDR monochrome image. We’ll have to see how the next ones go…

Bellamy Harbor at Sunrise

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

I always assumed that Bellamy Harbor Park was part of the city of Rome’s responsibility. I have been giving the city credit for all the good renovation that has occurred over the last few years. It is actually owned by the New York State Canal Corporation. I guess I should be giving credit where credit is due.

The Canal Corporation has been adding a lot to the park on the East side, across Mill Street from the original park. Sunday morning was a great day to capture some of that new area with a nice dramatic sunrise as a backdrop. I also managed a few other views including a nice panoramic view of the barge canal looking East from under the Mill St. bridge.

Watchguard

Delta Lake State Park

Sunday evenings and Delta Lake work for me. I think it is a combination of timing and weather but what ever it is, I am definitely enjoying my time late on Sunday. Either the temperature was cooler or people decided to wait until the holiday but the beach was all but empty. Barely a car in the parking lot and only a handful of people enjoying the sunset. There was some remnants of a sandcastle near one of the lifeguard stations so I used the mound of sand to prop up my Lensball. My goal was to incorporate the chair in the sunset. I think it worked out quite well…
