Stuck in Disney World

I’ve been traveling so much lately and not been the greatest dad in the world so I brought the family to Disney World for a few days. I don’t think I have been in over 30 years myself, so it is really surprising to see everything that is new. Also, it’s a fantastic place for photography. I have a really good idea for a photo series, but my wife thinks it is a horrible idea and I should not attempt it under any circumstances. However, I am going to try it anyway… it’s just too good of an idea.

Anyway, this picture below is not from that experimental series… it’s just a shot of Disney World at the Magic Kingdom. I will do my best not to get the traditional shots of the parks and activities… I wish there weren’t all these tourists here. I need my own park, like Cartman.

Jupiter Island

This is a shot of some old dock beams on Jupiter Island in Florida around sunset. I am not sure where that green light came from on the wood, but it looks nice.

Changed hotels

I missed my flight after that meeting, so I crashed here for the night at the Ritz-Carlton in Palm Beach. It’s called the Palm Beach one, but it was actually about 15 minutes away. The rooms were very nice and I spent most of the evening down in the bar, reading this new book I got called, “The Geography of Thought” that talks about how Asians think vs. how Westerners think.

It just so happened that I was at the hotel the same time as the South Florida Plastic Surgery convention, so I was surrounded at the bar by all these old plastic surgeons and their hot young botox buxom wives. They all were getting drunk and talking about all kinds of crazy stuff. They were talking about this one grandma that came in and they injected her with the knockout medicine, and she started talking openly about a bunch of crazy hardcore lesbian experiences and all the nurses were cracking up.

I heard a bunch more stories that I can’t talk about… but it was certainly more lewd than the gaming industry!

Slow week but old pics from Palm Beach

This is a slow week for me because of personal stuff (I don’t post a lot of personal family stuff on my blog because of the creeps out there, and, also, because family blogs are usually pretty boring – I don’t think that anyone really cares if Ethan gets new bedsheets).

But here is a pic from last week when I was in Palm Beach taken from my friend’s pad who lives on Worth. You can see the damage done by the recent hurricane on the beach. There used to be sand all down the beach, and now you can see it is half washed away! They actually bring these huge ships in and pump in new sand from the intercoastal at the cost of millions of dollars. Only in Palm Beach would they pay millions to move sand 3 miles.*

Compare that to a picture I took a year earlier from about the same vantage point:*

Cool offices

One of my meetings took me down to the big advertising agency Zimmerman & Partners down in Ft. Lauderdale. They had some pretty cool offices – sort of what you would expect for an advertising agency. It reminded me a bit of a game studio, except there was even more of an emphasis on creativity around without being heavy-handed. I made some notes while I was there about some good ideas to emulate.
