This is my fourth post in four days… I hope I’m not overdoing it my readers – I just want to share the pics! These are from the same weekend as my Port Orleans Royal Guest Rooms post and my IllumiNations post. I parked at Boardwalk and grabbed some dinner before riding the Friendship boat to EPCOT to photograph some fireworks with my new tripod.
I arrived nice and early, and was able to score a bench down behind the fish and chips stand in the UK Pavilion, toward the France side. Now, I’d love to share many more night time World Showcase photos with you, and I will. However, tonight, I was on foot and with my disability and limited mobility, I was restricted to shooting from my viewing spot.
Many of the pics are very similar, with just a few variations. I also played with color and saturation more than I normally do. I just felt the area and the pictures were too pretty not to share, so I shared nearly all of them – even the mistakes. The usual equipment: Canon T3i, 28mm F/1.8 lens, Manfrotto tripod, Rocketfish 8-point star filter, and non-name remote shutter release (for bulb mode).
I hope you enjoy the pics, let me know if you want me to make any available full-size for wallpaper!
Walk through the Boardwalk lobby or down the stairs to a beautiful courtyard. I realize the sun is about to set and the pics will be perfect on the ride over!
Boardwalk, thanks for dinner… Time to go to EPCOT!
The sun is fading fast…
Some views from the dock…
It’s pretty, isn’t it?
It’s a relaxing, non-stuffy resort… Most deluxes are sort of stuffy for my tastes.
My ride is here.
We’ll see ya real soon!
Yacht and Beach Club are just across the water.
Heading under the bridge that’ll take you to the International Gateway if you’re walking.
Here we are!
A Friendship boat currently not in use.
The International Gateway.
The odd, yet pretty, ceiling inside the shop at International Gateway.
Make sure to ask how to get to the top.
This shot went over very well on twitter. Oddly, I didn’t even really like it. It’s overexposed and kinda crazy.
This is the shot which I was attempting.
Looks like a nuke went off… a boat passed by
Can you spot the difference between this one…
…and this one?
Laser test for IllumiNations.
Alright, back to Boardwalk. Pretty lobby, spend some time here if you can.
It’s a vast space.
Reminds me of Percy Jackson books.
Way too much star filter.
The villas side of things, as I head to my car.
