Epcot Abstract


Visiting Epcot Center in 1983 at Disney Orlando gave me an opportunity to try some new film and techniques, this was my first attempt at abstract photography and found Epcot (Experimental Community of Tomorrow), a concept of New Urbanism most inspiring.

The film of choice was Kodak 35mm Infrared Color Film (now discontinued) and though this was not some of the most bizarre of images photographed on this role there were many more with boldly twisted wild colors, a characteristic of this type film and a look that takes you back on a trip to a page in Tom Wolfe's The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

I will eventually post these other images mentioned as they are restored and archived in the future.

Ah yes, the big ball at Epcot! It makes a better object to photograph than an attraction ride! (Just my opinion). Very nice shot, with the palm trees in the distance.
(By the way, those bird photos were not mine, and I fixed that thanks to your visit!)
