It’s becoming more and more difficult to think of unique names for Spaceship Earth photos, given that I have so many of them. The only thing stopping me from switching to a bland numbering scheme (“Spaceship Earth 112,” “Spaceship Earth 113,” etc.) is that I’d never remember what number I was on. Whether one person needs so many Spaceship Earth photos is a good question. Probably not, but I enjoy photographing it so much that I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon, and as you might notice, most of my Spaceship Earth photos are night photos.
Almost all of these photos are taken at the end of the night, when an odd thing happens: I have a second wind. It has honestly happened more times than I can count. We’re traversing the park, incredibly tired, but when I start taking photos at the end of the night, no matter how tired I was previously, I suddenly am overcome with energy (or adrenaline…or whatever scientific term actually explains what’s happening) and just want to keep going. Does this happen to anyone else? I can seriously be tired to the point where I begin to nod off on Maelstrom, but as soon as I start setting up the tripod in front of that viking outside Norway, my energy begins picking up. By the time we get to the front entrance of Epcot, I’m downright hyper.
