Florida 2012: Digital Photographs Part 1

Attention! This is a long post with many photographs. You may have to wait for all the pictures to download. In fact, this post has so many pictures I have decided to split it into two three posts.

My family’s holiday to Florida in July 2012. Along with my 20D and compact camera, I also brought the Konica C35v with ten rolls of film. I exposed five of them and they will appear in subsequent blog posts. Subscribe by email, RSS or Google friend connect to see them as soon as they’re uploaded.

We had a 10 hour flight from London Gatwick to Orlando International. We then hired a comfy SUV and drove to a prebooked holiday villa just outside Kissimmee. We spent the first week or so there, visiting the Disney and Universal theme parks. To the theme parks, I brought my compact camera and the Konica C35v. I don’t really take photos at theme parks, but I did take a few.

Day 1 - We went to Epcot.

Day 3 - We went to Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

Day 4 - We went to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, not a lot of pictures here either. The picture of the heron was actually taken in the villa complex.
