Crazy Imaginative!

I have been wondering: wouldn’t it be possible to have multiple 360º panoramas (pole panos would be best) in relatively close proximity to one another and actually fly a virtual camera (using pan, tilt, zoom) through that 3D space creating the illusion of free flight through space, moving, as needed, between panoramic spheres. Then, today, I discovered this: hyperlapse. Totally… Continue reading

The undulating fog is spectacular! When you watch it, be sure to click on the full screen mode in the player… Continue reading

ecto… as in …plasm?
