A Stormy Day in Paradise
Full Disclosure: The title of this blog post is a bit misleading and done more for dramatic effect than to exemplify the actual conditions on the day this photo was taken. It was the morning after Disney's Monstrous Summer All Nighter 24-hour event, and I found myself in Paradise Pier, hoping against hope (as well as the weather forecast) that I might be able to catch a bit of some sort of sunrise. Alas, it was not to be, but the clouds that morning were pretty dramatic, and with some Photoshopping, I decided to shape this photo into something more impressionistic. Hence, Paradise Bay was transformed from its normal sunny, cheerful disposition to a dark and brooding environment. Hey, photographers are artists in their own little way, too!
