Seeing Color in Epcot

I am old enough to remember watching Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color on a black & white television. I had to use my imagination to fill in the colors back then. Today, very thankfully, color abounds everywhere we look and visit at Walt Disney World.

I am a big fan of color photography and use color as much as I can to tell stories in my work. I was recently fascinated with Epcot’s Innoventions East Colortopia Presented by Glidden Paint exhibit. Inside was the Color Our World interactive display with these Digital Paint Buckets. I could not resist the rainbow of colors.

For me, the photo was one of color for color’s sake.

Later, as I explored the Morocco pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase, I found an excellent use of color outside The Brass Bazarr. The red in the tall brass pieces draws your eyes directly to the shop’s sign.

I am also a fan of the many textures seen in this photo.

Color foods or, in this case, beverages are fun to photograph. Being at night, I put the Festival of the Arts Musical Float drink, which was sold at the America Adventure pavilion, in front of a brightly lighted stand.

Opening up the aperture of the lens to its widest point (f/4), I got very pleasing bokeh in behind it. By the way, it was as yummy as it was colorful.

Walking out of Epcot at night, I can never pass Spaceship Earth without photographing the beautiful colors Disney lights it with.

It is as magnificent as the planet it was built upon.
