Observations by Photographer Mark Urbin

Riding the monorails

I had half a day to spend in Walt Disney World, so I rode the monorail trains and toured the resort hotels.

This is a view you only get from the monorail.

It reminds me of the masks from the Tiki House.

A bit of cleanup

I’ve scrubbed a few hundred photos off my flickr account over the past couple of days.  There will be more pruning.  Flickr just isn’t what it used to be a couple of years ago and that home page redesign (pushed on the users even though the majority of beta testers didn’t like it from what I understand) was a serious step backwards in usability.

I’ll be focusing on building up my smugmug site and letting the flickr account fade.

New Photo posted

I have a new photograph of one of the Wawona Hotel buildings posted. This is a historic hotel located in Yosemite National Park, but just outside Yosemite Valley.

Site updates

I’ve been updating the layout of my smugmug site.  I’ll probably move urbinphotography.com to point there soon.

Clock Tower and Rubble

Clocktower and Rubble, originally uploaded by Eclipse Pics (∆ncient).

The distinctive Worcester State Mental Hospital with its future before it. The old buildings are being demolished.

I have a B&W version shot of this that I prefer.

A nice cup of espresso I had at the 2008 Bud Jam Friday night.

I also shot it in Black & White.
