Spaceship Earth from Epcot Resort Area

 

Every photographer who visits WDW Walt Disney World needs to get his or her version of the Epcot symbol at night. One of the advantages of staying in the Epcot resort area is that you can get a less common view of the landmark. This was taken from across the resort lake with a telephoto lens. WDW fanatics will know that the landmark’s true name is Spaceship Earth but everyone else just calls it the giant Epcot golfball.

Please check out yesterday’s Memorial Day post if you missed.

Weehawken War Memorial

 

The circumstances that led to me posting this today were entirely fortuitous. I planned another pre-dawn excursion to NJ ot shoot the sunrise, starting at a location in West New York that I will feature soon, followed by a stop in Weehawken to get another view of the Manhattan skyline. I knew that Hamilton Park had amazing views of the city, but I did not realize until I arrived that it also is the location of Weehawken War Memorial sculptures. The centerpiece is the World War I, or Great War, memorial. The stone to the left is for WWII, and the one on the right is for Korea and Viet Nam. So I got my skyline shots but I also stopped to quickly grab this in honor of the day.

Say a prayer, give some thanks, and enjoy the day.

Our Lady Of Siluva

 

The post title is a bit of a mouthful, but Our Lady of Šiluva is the first Apparition of the Blessed Mother in Europe, occurring in 1608. Šiluva  is a small town in Lithuania. At the time of the apparition, the region was controlled by Calvinists who oppressed the Catholic Church and the appearance of Mary is credited with resolving the plight of local Catholics.

This chapel is located in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, located on the campus of The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. I attended the graduation ceremonies held last Saturday as my niece (my wife’s brother’s daughter) graduated with her BA degree. While there, I briefly walked through the main floor of the Basilica and took some pictures, although the results have my wishing I had taken a bit more time and care. Mostly pleased with this one.

Balanced Rock Infrared

 

From last Spring’s nXnw trip to Moab, Utah, this is the Balanced Rock formation in Arches National Park. This was taken with an old Nikon D40 camera that has been converted into an infrared camera. The black and white conversion was done in camera where I set the D40 to create black and white JPGs in addition to the raw version. I tweaked it a bit in Aperture.

If you want a sense of the scale of this formation, look closely at the middle of the gap on the right and find the person in the white shirt.

Waverly Diner

 

The online world seems to be split between calling this the Waverly Diner or the Waverly Restaurant – but c’mon — look at it. It screams diner. On the corner of Sixth Avenue and Waverly Place in Greenwich Village. This was taken early on a very, very cold Sunday morning in January.

This is another JPG SOOC, with just a square crop.
