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.

Sapphire Inn

“Where you have friends you should not go to inns.”
— George Eliot

I’ve walked past this place a dozen times on various photo walks, but never before had the chair been in place and the light seemed so interesting. I’m not sure how long The Sapphire Inn has operated in downtown Kissimmee, but from the looks of the place, it’s been around a while. They don’t have a web page, but I do know they have cable — at least in unit 8.

A Prior Arrangement

“Reflection is a flower of the mind, giving out wholesome fragrance; but revelry is the same flower, when rank and running to seed.”
Desiderius Erasmus

I went on a photo walk around downtown Kissimmee yesterday. This weathered and worn arrangement of nature in plastic caught my eye at the back door of a downtown business. Maybe it’s just me and my natural curiosity, but when I see things like this I want to know more: What’s the story? No matter how simple, there is always a story.
