Tag Archives: Spaceship Earth

The Seas with Nemo & Friends is one of my favorite EpCoT attractions. Little did I know then that I would walk away with photos perfect for Karen’s October Photo Hunt, which is all about idioms.

We begin with two shots taken outside the pavilion:
 
“Birds of a Feather Flock Together”

“Birds of a Feather” (Animatronic Seagulls, The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion, EpCoT) Nikon Coolpix P7100, 16.3mm, F/4, 1/1000s, -1.7EV, ISO 400, Built-in Rear Curtain Flash

 
and:
 
“Swimming with Sharks”

“Swimming with Sharks” (The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion, EpCoT) Nikon Coolpix P7100, 6mm, F/2.8, 1/80s, ISO 400, Nik Silver Effex Pro ‘Strong IR HC’ Filter

 
For the third entry we head on into the ride itself. When I find myself on certain dark and rather slow-moving attractions, I like to play with slow-shutter speeds allowing colors and forms to bleed into interesting compositions. So, from inside my ‘clamobile’, I clicked the shutter release and held the camera as steady as I could:
 

“Blur the Lines”

“Blur the Lines” (The Seas with Nemo & Friends Ride, EpCoT) Nikon Coolpix P7100, 6mm, F/2.8, 2s, ISO 1600

Visions of coral reefs, sunken vessels and sea life are instantly transformed into a land of pink and apricot clouds along with a lime green sun (or, is it an alien ship??) 😉 

 
For the bonus Halloween shot, we head on over to the Magic Kingdom. I simply couldn’t resist this little guy dangling from one of the scarecrows that decorate the common at the very start of Main Street, USA: 

 
“Hung Out to Dry” 

“Hung Out to Dry” (Pumpkin Mickey Doll, Magic Kingdom, Main Street USA) Canon Powershot SX40 HS, 20.3mm, F/4.5, 1/800s, ISO 100

So, there you have it… THREE days early and complete with idiom bonus! 🙂

“Spaceship Earth” (Epcot, Walt Disney World, Florida) Nikon D300, 42mm, F/13, 1/400s, -0.7EV, ISO 200

Greetings from the Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World! I wish I could say it is HOT here, but that would be lying. 😦 A cold front moved in and the temps are a little chillier than expected but still better than what the folks are experiencing back in Massachusetts, so who am I to complain? (Besides, it’s nothing a little bubbly can’t cure!)I’ve decided that all Project 365 posts during this trip will be in the form of postcards – how neat is that?

So far we’ve been enjoying the fine food and spirits of the festival taking place at Epcot, soooo postcard #1 just had to be a shot of the theme park’s recognizable icon – Spaceship Earth!

Cheers! 😀
