When I attended a convention in Orlando in the early 90's, we stayed in the Swan Hotel, on the grounds of Disney World. The Dolphin Hotel is nearby, and I photographed both. I honestly don't know which interior photos are which hotel, as I didn't mark them.
Another view. I was always proud of this photo. All of these were taken with my old 35mm camera.
The Swan. I scanned these photos directly into the computer and I didn't crop or lighten them first, although this one could have benefited from that.
The Dolphin Lobby
I loved these structural columns made to look like palm trees.
The monkeys are but one example of the whimsical ornamentation and decor found all over Disney World. The attention to detail is astounding.
One wall of the Dolphin, painted with palm fronds. Have you been to Disney World? What is your strongest memory?
I returned home today at 6:45 pm, having worked since 9 am. I was telling myself how tired I was when I opened the mailbox to a big envelope. The contents made me very happy. I have won some sort of contest over at Travelin Oma's and she sent me a book I can't wait to read, titled:
"No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog" by Margaret Mason.
Thank you so much, Marty! You are a woman of your word - which I never doubted for a moment. I am really looking forward to reading the book.
