Andy's Lame QTVR Gates Experiment

Unlike the high-quality QTVR file posted by Hans, I managed to make a really, really bad QTVR panorama while at the Gates. As you'll be able to tell from looking at the file, I didn't use a tripod, so it comes across more like a bad hallucination than a 360 panorama.

For those of you who can't access QTVR files, here's a flat JPG version of it. If it were a good panorama, it would look like a long rectangle rather than a slithering worm. So as you can see, it's problematic to say the least, but I figured I'd share it just for the fun of it.

Note to self - next time Christo is in town, bring a tripod. -ac

Virtual Slideshows from The Gates

For those of you who'd like to sit back and watch a slideshow of photos from The Gates, I wanted to share two links with you. The first is a slideshow of photos contributed from our blog. The second is a slideshow of Flickr photos tagged with "thegates". What's the difference between the two? The first collection contains photos posted through this blog, while the second aggregates all photos submitted by hundreds of Flickr members who visited The Gates. So if you'd like to see what your fellow blog users have photographed, go to the first slideshow, while if you prefer a broader collection from the general public, go to the second one. Enjoy! -andy
