One of our favorite spots to kick back at Walt Disney World. The food is always fantastic and the grounds are wonderful for strolling after dinner with its “California Lodge” look of what you’d expect Yosemite to look like.
Typical Disney attention to detail throughout – a must stay if you’re a Disney fan and a fan of that California look.
Thanks for your visit and be sure to stop by ccstudio2380 for some great examples of our fine art photography.

I love the symmetry of this shot – and the rogue red flowers that found their way into the frame.
At Epcot World Showcase, France Pavilion.

We’ve visited the Japan Pavilion quite a number of times over the years – it’s difficult to find new ways of photographing familiar things. The two samurai on horseback that stand guard to the castle have proven to be photographically “tricky” for me. What I mean is that I’m never really satisfied with my images – they lack the sunshine that would make them pop.
They’re beautifully presented statues, wonderfully sculptured and highly detailed but lack bright natural lighting. With that said, here’s my best “shot” at making something out of a poor original image.
Oh how I wish this sculpture were out in the open against a beautiful blue sky!
And while we’re at it, the torii gate is another of my hard to capture icons at the pavilion. The Epcot background always throws me… who wants to see the “golf ball” peeking from behind the gate!
No Epcot “golf ball” but now we see France and England in the background!
If you haven’t had the chance to wander around the Japan Pavilion at Epcot yet, please find the time. Carol and I will often spend an entire afternoon strolling through the many beautiful exhibits and of course you’ve got to see Mitsukoshi Department Store.
Thanks for stopping by!
