Disney Pic of the Week: Spaceship Earth Epcot

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

As the iconic symbol of Epcot, Spaceship Earth has been photographed almost as much as Cinderella Castle. Trying to find a unique way of presenting it is nearly impossible. In fact, the photo below is me doing something I saw on flickr by another photographer. This “on the ground” prospective with the dividing concrete line leading your eyes (right?) into the photo came out better than I had hoped. Not having the entire geodesic sphere in the frame and emphasizing all the guests walking towards it, to me, reminds me of Spaceship Earth’s theme of Human Communications.

Barrie and Lisa will be here on Thursday and Saturday with their views on Spaceship Earth.

  1. I must admit I groaned and thought “Most of the pics of Spaceship Earth are the same, just different light”. My mouth has been well and truly hushed. It’s brilliant!
