THE Orlando Photo Thread


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the nice comments - I have been also been taking a bunch of pics of UCF which I will post soon. I'm a sucker for night shots... so many, many more to come. Amazing what a $500 camera and $700 lens will do for you! :) My buddy who has a sick pro-level Nikor lens (almost $2k) is letting me borrow it next weekend so I should have many more nice pics for you all...

Any requests?

thanks again for your kind comments! :)

Requests: The new stadium at UCF and more streetlevel pics downtown and actual pictures inside the parks, some pics maybe of College Park, Colonialtown, Lake Ivanhoe area, Baldwin Park, etc so we have some actual "living" shots of life in Orlando, not just skyline photos. Thanks if you can oblige!

Here is a new angle for you.  This is the demo of a building at the ORMC campus making way for a new orthopedic tower.

The heart of downtown.

Sunrise and a bit of crane

Yes...

How about some great long distance skyline shots? Like from the top of the hotel at the florida mall, or the parking garage at the airport, the fashion square mall, florida hospital, or Arnold Palmer?

Both excellent ideas. That building that Docs restaurant is in has a great view of the skyline from the 6th floor or the little parking garage behind it (across from ORMC) and I wonder if the Florida Mall hotel offers a good "skyline view" of the "other" Orlando as well. And some street level I-Drive shots would be cool also, we need to quit being embarrassed of the tourist part of town and the area around the convention center and Pointe Orlando is usually packed with tourists or conventioneers as well as locals walking around making Orlando the active city that it really is except for being so spread apart. I think Millenia has finally connected the 2 together making more one long city with each growth spurt. Some pics around Millenia or the Orlando sign on Conroy Rd. would be nice (and possibly dangerous.)!

I didn't even think to look when I went by the Peabody. My bad.

And I have to admit, there ARE a lot of nerds at MegaCon. I was there as press, though. And for anyone that hasn't been there, it is a site to behold. I have the new slogan for next year...

MegaCon... when chess club and band are not enough.

Yes. I went to the top of that 7 story garage. The wind gusts on Saturday were very strong. I had a cup of coffee wedged into my camera bag and the wind grabbed it, lifted up into the air, and plopped it down 7 stories on the ground. I had a hard time trying to keep the camera still and even holding onto it.

That's pretty boring if you ask me.

Yeah, I didn't want to say it, but it truly is.

Actually boring is an understatement.

I'm thinking pedestrian... or run-of-the-mill.

Common.

Lackluster.

Not even interesting enough to be ugly.

Just..... nothing.

I agree. It is kind of hard to believe that this:

is a spawn of this:

I agree with you gentlemen, but you have to take into context the enviornment in which they occupy. Our version, is by all means a resort/convention hotel with a golf course (EDIT: AT DISNEY). The interior appointments for the Waldorf hotel will be top notch though. The Hilton, well......Mad Hero said it, "It looks like a hilton.

Let me see if I can get permission to post both my interior and exterior photos that I have of both sites.

yeah, that Waldorf in NYC is truly a masterpiece, from the moment you walk in the door on Park Ave.

as for our Hilton... all I know is that it's a 1,500 roomer, adds even more validity and clout to the destination, and will be, according to their site, the largest of the Hilton chain, with the first Waldorf Collection as well. if it's anything like the Grande Lakes complex, it will be stunning.

???? Not sure where goofy fits into this thread but....

Its as plain as day to anyone who has read the DaVinci code:

From the stormy four corners of Orlando's power base, goofy pronouncements and smackdown politics combine for citrus bowl renovations* over the stubborn defense of Cavalier hoteliers.

*For mostly monster trucks shows, apparently.

:whistling:
