Of all the words, I think I find 'meatloaf' the most interesting!.

Sunday Snapshots of Spaceship Earth

All photographers, especially amateurs, have a weakness for recurring themes. I, for one, have an extreme weakness for Spaceship Earth photos; I just can't seem to get enough. 

This park's weenie often makes for out of kilter images when shot from intermediate length with a standard 35-80mm lens; take a look at the signage and buildings at lower right.

My favorite place to catch images of Spaceship Earth during the day is within Future World West, between The Seas with Nemo and Friends and the Land Pavilion. I must have 50 plus snapshots from this particular location and every time I'm there I must take a few more. 

One of the most frustrating shots is as you exit the turnstiles and enter the park itself. This photo, from 2007's Food and Wine Festival, belies the fact this area is chock-full of folks who stop in mid stride to have thier photograph taken by family and friends. I would venture to say more stroller accidents happen here than anywhere else in Epcot.

These phtographs were taken in November, 2007.
