Epcot’s Future World through an UWA Lens

Posted on
As I prepare for my vacation to the Northwestern United States, I know I will be using my ultra wide angle (UWA) lens a lot throughout the trip.

Possible Hidden Mickeys in Epcot

Posted on
I’ve seen some Hidden Mickeys in fleeting moments but have been unable to capture them in photos.

An image having a strong organization of shapes and forms, which is essentially the geometric elements of the photo, will create a strong composition. When I think Disney and geometric elements, I think Epcot’s Future World. The architecture of the pavilions use many geometric shpapes starting with the triangles on Spaceship Earth.

People were worried computers would stop working and computerized systems from air traffic control towers to thermostats would cause all kinds of problems. I sure do as I was running the computer systems for a manufacturing company.
