Favorite Photos 18

Thirty six years ago this month, as a teenager visiting Disney World for the first time, I shot this photo of a monorail going through the Contemporary Resort. I used an early 20th century Kodak bellows camera that I had bought at a church bazaar and restored myself. Borrowing my father’s 1950’s light meter I set the aperture to get the highest shutter speed possible. Then I panned, with out the aid of a tripod, to follow the monorail putting most of the motion blur on the lamps in the foreground (at least that’s how I remember it). This was also my first color photography, normally I only shot monochrome and developed the images myself. For this special family trip my Dad had bought a roll of 120 size color film for me and then paid for the processing.
