Photographer's Note

Here's an old shot from my trip to Florida this past summer.

Near Kissimmee, this is the planned community of Celebration, Florida.

Planned, designed, and run by the Walt Disney corporation buyers have a finite number of choices for homes, are told what colours they are allowed to paint it, what sorts of things you can (and cannot) put on your lawn or porch, to name just a few rules.

From the BBC :
"Celebration was founded in 1994, and sold to Americans as "a place of caramel apples and cotton candy, secret forts, and hopscotch on the streets". Thousands of Disneyphiles came from across the USA to resettle in the town and live the Disney dream. In winter, the town's managers blow fake snow into the streets, and in Autumn, they provide fake leaves. But there is increasing dissent in Celebration at Disney's authoritarian rule."

This place was creepy.
