Orange County Courthouse

The downtown Orlando skyline has certainly changed over the years, and the Orange County Courthouse is one of the few buildings not yet crowded out of view by the further advances of progress. Completed in 1997, the current courthouse stands 416 feet tall. The 23-story building has 9,500 windows looking out on Orlando – a numbing fact considering how much I hate washing the 16 windows in my single-story home.

Curbed Ambition

A youthful mind is seldom totally free from ambition; to curb that is the first step to contentment, since to diminish expectation is to increase enjoyment.
         — Frances Burney

Taking advantage of the D800’s exceptional ability to handle high ISO captures, I went out to Kissimmee’s Old Town a couple of evenings ago with the goal of doing some natural light night photography. Crossing a street, I noticed an interesting contrast of light and shadow within the scene before me. I quickly dropped down on one knee and snagged this shot before the opportunity was gone. You have to take a shot when you see it; otherwise, that moment – that exact image – will be forever lost.
