World Showcase Details

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Epcot’s World Showcase is a treasure trove of photographic opportunities. I find new things to photograph in the countries with every trip. Here are three examples.

I photograph lots of t-shirts when traveling. I like to use them for online galleries and slideshows. This t-shirt I found in an outdoor kiosk at the Canada pavilion would be a good one for an introduction slide to Canada.

When people think of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, I believe the famous Gargoyles which “guard” it come to mind. Outside the entrance to Impressions de France at the France pavilion sits a replica of the Spitting Gargoyle which may be the most famous resident of the cathedral.

The Morocco pavilion is one of the most detailed around the World Showcase. The tile work is beautiful and colorful. Add a touch of falling water and I could not resist.

Keep your senses peeled as you walk and explore Epcot’s World Showcase pavilions and share with us what you find.
