Just Around the Riverbend

Walt Disney World

I am seventeen days away from my vacation. Yes, I will be returning to Walt Disney World. It is the International Flower & Garden Festival right now. Time for me to photograph the topiary at Epcot and see the new nighttime show at Animal Kingdom. I guess this post is fair warning that the picture content of my posts will see an increase in WDW images. 🙂

The image above is the dock area for the rental boats at the Yacht Club resort. Readers may recognize the lighthouse as a favorite subject of mine while I explore WDW. I decided to play with my Topaz Labs Glow software and create a different look for this image. The program allowed me to add a neon glow to the edges of the picture. I reduced the opacity of that glow to allow the original image to show through. I like how it turned out.

The image below is the view of Expedition Everest from the seating area for the Flame Tree Barbecue restaurant. This area in front of Everest is the stage for the new nighttime Rivers of Light show at Animal Kingdom. I’m hoping I will be coming home with some great images of that show! 🙂

Just Thinkin’

Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Wow! Ten days! My last post was a week and a half ago. It has been some crazy days. I made a one day trip to Detroit to perform an inspection at a supplier. I fought through a sinus cold and then there was Stella. Winter storm Stella thought it would be fun to let us not forget Spring does not official start until March 20th. Oh, and didn’t we loose an hour somewhere around last Sunday. I keep looking for it but I think it will be quite a few months before I find it and get it back.

At least it is the weekend! Saturday morning and I have started my chores. Second load of laundry is in the washing machine. The dust bunnies tell me it is also time to get out more cleaning supplies than the vacuum. Later this morning I’ll be bringing a car to the garage to look for an oil leak and if all goes well, I’ll be pushing my way through some snow with the camera. Until then here is Goofy thinking it is time for me to return for a visit…

Monorail Monday
Future World, Epcot

Back in March of 2016, I drove my Mom and Grandpa done to Florida for their Spring stay at my Mon’s place in Lake Alfred. After getting everyone situated and the house opened up I snuck away one day for a visit to Epcot. The International Flower & Garden Festival had started and being this close was an opportunity I could not pass up. I still managed to get in quite a lot of monorail hunting on a single day visit… 🙂
