New York City: Part 2
Second photo in the series! I decided to have a little fun with this one. I wanted to take a panoramic shot encompassing all of times square. Thing is, the only thing tall enough to see over the heads of most people (tripod didn’t quite cut it) was Jay (the boyfriend). So, I kindly asked him to stand super-still in the middle of times square while I put my camera on his head and carefully rotated around, snapping shots. 12 photos and many strange looks later (oh, what one will do in the name of photography!) I had my prize. I stitched the photos together with the G7’s provided computer software when I returned to Philly…only to find that my rotating was not quite as good as a tripod’s, hence the funky curve in the image. But, with the magic of Photoshop, a funky curve can be transformed into a “bowl” of sorts for a funky title. So, this picture isn’t pure photography, but I think its fun nonetheless!
As usual, taken with the Canon Powershot G7. As not-usual (unusual?), taken with the help of Jay’s noggin (I always knew that head was good for more than just pharmacy and remembering anniversaries!)
