Celebration Town Center

Celebration Hotel

“Business is leisure when you find pleasure in it.”
― Peter Adejimi

As promised in yesterday’s post, today’s photo is the last of those I captured in my photo-walk around Celebration Town Center last Sunday. I have quite enjoyed the focus on black-and-white with these images; it was my intent when I set out to photograph scenes that would translate well to B&W, and the bright afternoon sun combined with the dramatic skies of an approaching storm were well-suited to that objective. All of the photos that day were also the product of my first real “street outing” with the Tokina AT-X 16-28mm F2.8 PRO FX lens. I’m pleased; there will be more.

Celebration: Lines, Shapes and Shadows

Presenting two more photos from my photo-walk in Celebration Town Center, both taken at the AMC Celebration 2 theatre building — closed since 2010. The sun was out and quite bright, but the storm coming in created the perfect opportunity to capture some interesting shadows and dramatic clouds. My next post will feature the final image from that day. Like the photo of the theatre’s twin spires here, it also has great clouds. So please come back! I hope you enjoy the photos.

Turning Tables: Empty Umbrellas

This is the last photo in what has become an unintentional series of images I’ve labeled “Turning Tables”. I didn’t set out to photograph empty tables in empty restaurants, but in the course of my photo-walk around Celebration Town Center, that’s what I saw; it’s what was present. I think this illustrates something very important about photographic creativity: being versatile, adaptive and aware. Admittedly, it wasn’t until I had captured the third image that I realized I had a theme going I could build upon. Sometimes it just happens that way, and I believe we have to let it. I find that some of the best photographs I produce are those which were spontaneous and unplanned; captured by chance in the course of doing something that was intentional.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos.
