Farm 2

A bit better focus on this one but you can see how much movement there is by the white lines in the road!


... or it's really hard when trying to take a panoramic photo from a moving balloon to keep everything mapped together and focussed ;-).


I've been revisting some of my old pano shots and processing them. The image below is one I took maybe a year ago when I was around the White Horse area of South West England. The actual panorma turned out completely differently than I imagined while taking it and to be honest I can't decide whether I like it or not. It's got the 'minimalist and mudane' look about it but I can't decide whether it has got anywhere near the 'minimalist, mudane and magnificent' point hat you see with some photos. What do you think? Yay or nay? You can be brutally honest, I won't be offended... The pano is 1x3.

Regardless, it means that I can pack the files away into my 'archive' folder so it won't continually torment me in the 'todo' folder ;-)

Olympic Stadium, Munich

Tuesday and Wednesday I was visiting Munich for work. We got done earlier than we thought so spent some time having a drink in the sun at the Olympic Park in Munich. While there I took the opportunity to have a look inside the stadium for 2EUR. Below is a 1x3 handheld panorama which surprisingly went together pretty easily. Munich was expecting a storm later in the evening hence the pretty clouds you can see building up! Comments and criticisms would be most welcome.


Below is a 4 image hand held pano that I shot while visiting my brother in Reading. Any comments and criticisms would be welcome (note there is no lens flare! ;-) )

Visit to Reading

Last weekend, Edd came home for a visit and I decided to take him back home by car as he was taking more "stuff" back to his flat in Reading. I'd decided to stay overnight so took my sleeping bag and camp bed too so that I'd be rested for the 100 mile journey back home the following morning. After arriving there in the early afternoon, we went for a walk and I took some photos of Reading Abbey and Forbury Park. The Abbey's destruction started at the dissolution of the monasteries in about 1539. I believe that the lead was stripped from the roof and the fabric of the building allowed to deteriorate. Further information on the Abbey can be found on

View of the Landsdowne Monument

I've been playing with my new computer, marvelling at the speed that it now stitches panoramas compared to my old clunky steam driven one and getting used to getting a stitch in less than half a day. I put this panorama together today for which I would welcome comment. I am also interested in whether the colours look ok as I invested in a new monitor to replace my old CRT.

St Mary's Church Window 1

I'm experimenting with a new way to display a panoramic when I want to upload a full-size or extremely large version. I thought I'd give Zoomify a try and a stained glass window panorama seemed the perfect pano to try it on first. I'm intersted in putting up the larger version for stained glass as I know my mum will be interested in the details of the painting. I spent this weekend and some of tonight stitching and Photoshopping the pano which consists of 3x3 images taken some time ago in St. Mary's Church in Berkley.

Space Wolf Army

My brother recently came to stay for a weekend in order to photograph his hobby. He likes painting minatures from Games Workshop, more specifically the Space Wolves series of minatures from the game Warhammer 40,000. My brother is not the best painter but he enjoys painting and modifying the models as is his want. After taking individual shots of each of the models I persuaded him to let me photograph a panorama version of his whole Space Wolf army. It was good fun as we constructed a white backdrop of a couple of levels in order to get more of them visible in the picture. We both tried to get all of them facing the camera but just like real people some of them are still stubbornly looking away! ;-)
