Germany is so different then all the other countries with a wide open and welcoming courtyard with the statue of St. George on his horse in the center. … Continue reading "Epcot Germany Pavilion from Fisheye to (almost) Normal"

Cinderella Castle Replacement Sky

Replacing a Cinderella Castle Sky

Posted on
One of the advantages of an early morning advanced dining reservation in the Magic Kingdom is there are only a few people around. Allowed me to get this photo with a nearly empty park. Another thing you get in Florida is a cloudless blue sky. In the past, if I wanted to change the sky, … Continue reading "Replacing a Cinderella Castle Sky"

Spaceship Earth 2001

Spaceship Earth Through the Years

Posted on
I have photographed Walt Disney World since 1983. Most of those early photos need to be found and scanned. I do have thousands of digital photos (and a few scans) I can share.
