The Inner Sanctum

Monochrome, Dandelion

It felt like forever since I had visited the Old Erie Canal Park in DeWitt during lunch. I definitely needed the visit! Long work days and miserably rainy weather of late left my batteries needing a recharge. I decided to focus on the small detail so I left the macro lens attached, changed into my hiking shoes and headed off down the path through the woods.

Of course, one of the subjects I find would be dandelions. I can’t help myself. The delicate, intricate details draw me in every time. Half the fun is finding the right dandelion to photograph. On this one I wanted to highlight the amazing structure of the dandelion head at the center of the puff ball… 🙂

Grapes?

Squared – SQ129

The grape hyacinths are out finally. I managed to take a little time to go exploring with the macro lens looking for the little floral creations. I came home with a few good finds…

Echo Lake View

Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World

The view of S.S Down The Hatch from across Echo Lake at Hollywood Studios before Disney decided to remove all the trees. I understand they wanted to create more viewing space for the fireworks show, but I feel it diminishes the character of the park. I wish it wasn’t always about packing a park full of people and there was a return to the smaller details I have always enjoys about the parks…

My Favorite Bend

Monorail Monday
Future World, Epcot, Walt Disney World

There is a great spot over by The Seas with Nemo attraction in Future World at Epcot where you can look back along the monorail track towards The Imagination Pavilion and capture a great image of the monorail. If you do this late in the day the sun will contribute a nice glow. I love this spot because I’m partial to reflections and the curve in the beam presents the passing monorail with an interesting profile. I have probably captured images from this spot multiple times on each visit to Walt Disney World.

International Flower & Garden Festival, Epcot – 2017

Surprisingly, I’ve decided to take a little break from Walt Disney World. I will not be going down this Spring to partake in the International Flower & Garden Festival. I do like this image of Sorcerer Mickey from Fantasia with the monorail passing in the background. Hopefully I’ll recover from this Disney funk and make the trip down next year.
