EPCOT Center Torii Gate
Today’s photo is a slightly different take on the Torii Gate in Japan at Epcot’s World Showcase.
The other afternoon I was strolling through Epcot, and decided on lunch in Japan. It was a beautiful summer day in Florida, which meant perfect puffy clouds and bright blue skies. After lunch, I was exploring the Japan pavilion for photos and found myself on the second floor, near Teppan Edo. After snapping a few shots there, I took the stairs on the far side, closer to the way to Morocco. I saw this frame as I turned around from taking the steps back down to ground level. Normally, I shoot the Torii Gate straight on from inside the pavilion, or super wide right up against the water. But, this was a new take that I hadn’t yet captured. Here, the Torii Gate is framed y the foliage in the Japan pavilion. I think it creates a nice added layer of depth, and also provides a refreshing take on something that is very frequently photographed.
