Disney World 2008

Walt Disney World Resort is the most visited recreational resort in the world, containing four theme parks, two water parks, twenty-three themed hotels, and numerous shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation venues. It is located southwest of Orlando, Florida, USA.

The 4 theme parks are Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

My wife and I visited this magical place in January 2008 and we enjoyed it immensely. The purpose of this gallery is share with everyone in the world the beauty and festivity of this place as I wish everyone to see, namely, to be attracted by it and to visit it one day to experience it first hand.

When someone in dpreview.com forum asked "Which lens to rent for trip to Disneyland", the immediate response from a photographer was "Why on earth would you take pics at Disneyland at all?". Some photographers believe that man-made stuffs are not worth taking pictures of. However, I disgree. I believe that one aspect of photography is making accessible beauty and information to an audience who otherwise would not have the means to see.

In this trip I intended to travel light so I only brought my Canon 5D camera; a full-frame DSLR without on-board flash. I also brought just 2 lenses: Canon 24-105mm IS and Canon 15mm Fisheye. I meant to challenge myself to take a wide variety of image with limited equipment. A lot of images were taken under extreme low light conditions. I made some mistakes in my photo quest but I learnt a lot from it.

So sit back, relax and travel to this magical place with us. :)
