Leica D-Lux 3


Up until 2/10/2009, this GigaPan used to have as its title, "Rice University: Approaching Sunset in the Academic Quad." Afterwards, it was changed to something more appropriate since I discovered Brian Hasse, a baritone, practicing the main part in the wings :) And this happened in November!

In mid-October when I took the Gigapan of Shu and Yi: gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=10430, I alluded to the late-afternoon golden color of Lovett Hall and wrote that I would return. Well, this current Gigapan is an attempt at doing this, however, I still did not capture the color I really wanted... it appeared about 5-10 minutes after I completed this large panorama. Maybe in 2009, I will be able to pick a better moment.

While I was taking this Gigapan, maybe 50 or so students walked by at one time or another. You do not see them because they had more important things on-their-plate to accomplish and so, at almost the very end of the panorama, I meet Brian, a Grad Student , a baritone in the Shepherd School of Music. I trust that he will be the first of many Shepherd students that will be in a Gigapan.

Initially, a giant squirrel was wanting to play, but was camera shy and I did not capture its image close to the camera; however I see that as he wandered off, he decided to change his mind and give me a profile shot.

Brian made note of the fact that the giant squirrel hangs-out around Valhalla, the main source of food for squirrels that wish to become giants, so, the Gigapan robot will be looking for him or her again.

Shepherd School of Music presented Mozart's Don Giovanni for two performances: March 19th and March 21st 2009 in Stude Hall in Alice Pratt Brown Hall to great acclaim.
