The goal of this panorama was to test for artifacts or distortions in a area with lots of angles and lines and different brightness of sunlight.

But what I found was boarded up windows that had been destroyed by Hurricane Ike, two dudes enjoying great job security as they begin window replacement and a party invitation provided by the Downtown YMCA.

There is never a dull day when my little Leica and my Gigapan robot match up looking for visual excitement.
