Fun with Bruce

After Steve Lavigne left, I had another visitor -- my brother Bruce. He came up on Sunday to geek and ride. Unfortunately, the wonderful, sunny, warm weather we had on Friday and Saturday deserted us... we had thunderstorms on Sunday, and today started out rainy and cold. It stayed that way until the afternoon, when the rain petered out (but it was still cold). Bruce REALLY wanted to go for a ride (he had not been out riding yet this year), so when the rain stopped, it was "go time". We bundled up and took the two Victory's out, riding up to Shelburne Falls for a late lunch at McCusker's. It actually wasn't too bad -- I mean, I've been riding in colder temperatures than today's 43°.

At one point on the ride home, we stopped by a little marshy area to take some photos I wanted to try stitching into a panorama. I think it came out well.



It's interesting how the straight road gets distorted into what looks like a curvy stretch. I continue to be impressed by the way Panorama Maker4 works. -- PL

Have you ever tried taking multiple photos of someone in a landscape and then stitching them together? In a previous photo you had the same guy at either end of the panorama. It might be pretty cool to see a sequence like that.

I was just imagining what it would be like to see a person walking along the road in front of you two. First you would see him coming towards you, then in front of you, then walking away.

Stan, I have played around with that idea a little bit, albeit not with this program yet. -- PL
