A macro shot of a can of Holsten Festbock beer.  It's pretty good beer.

Above is the first panoramic photo I took with my camera. It even precedes the backyard photo you see in the previous post. I simply put this on my desk at my office and started spinning it around. Considering how well it turned out despite practically no effort on my part - no wonder I like taking these panoramic photos!

For the first time in years, I got to do a little sightseeing while on a business trip. I went to see the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (the St., Louis Arch) in St. Louis, Missouri. This is a location that practically begs for a panoramic photo.

It's not my best panoramic photo, but it does the job of recording that location for that moment in time. I'll get better as soon as I read more of the manual. This was taken without a tripod - it's just me turning in a circle and trying to hold the camera steady.

This is a picture of the Arch Museum at the base of/underneath the St. Louis Arch:

Something weird happened here. First of all it was dark. There were lots of people in the shot and I felt nervous they were all wondering why I was taking their picture so I was moving fast. Again, I didn't have a tripod so I was actually making my way around a statue that was occupying the centre spot. I was trying to go around this statue without actually touching it because as you can see in the photo at around the 30% mark, there is a female security guard right next to me. She wouldn't move; I practically banged her cheek with my lens

Whatever. The shot looks cool.
