… And I was pleasantly thrown back to a time I used to climb this particular “tree house” and take in the views of the rest of the park ;). Check  out this short 1 minute video – you’ll see what I mean.

Epcot Is Starting To Prepare For The 2014 International Food And Wine Festival

Took a stroll around World Showcase in Epcot at Walt Disney World today. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at the fact that they’re already starting to setup the added kiosks for this years’ International Food And Wine Festival.

Not much more needs to be said about these two pics. I captured them a few mornings ago while on another mission in Epcot at Walt Disney World.  Both shots were taken at the Norway Pavilion. I love both pictures for different reasons. But there’s just something about the floral…

Beauty Undiscovered: China / Epcot

Beauty Undiscovered: China / Epcot from Mike Thomas on Vimeo.

A little twist on the concept of my new series, “Beauty Undiscovered.” Since there ARE only four Disney Theme Parks at Walt Disney World, the plan is and has always been to highlight certain areas of hidden treasures & undiscovered beauty in and around the Disney World. So this week, the focus is on the…

… I happened to stroll by a spot where the sky and the lighting were just great shining down on The Dolphin Resort (at Walt Disney World). Even though I’ve shot this before (and I think posted it here as bloggage), I thought what the hey – it’s a nice, pretty, peaceful, serene scene to de-stress over :).

More stuff coming this weekend 0 including what I was ACTUALLY doing today ;).

Peace – Mike…

Mike Thomas Imagery: Magic Kingdom Park &emdash; DSCF2250

So there I was – at The Magic Kingdom Park on the Main Street Train Station. I was awaiting the arrival of someone I was to meet and go over an upcoming shoot with. My camera was set in “antique / sepia” mode when I looked up between two of the Railroad Cars and my eyes picked up on one of the Monorails passing by. As you can see, it looks like something from ‘Back To The Future III’ – the old…
