Philadelphia Pacifica Skyline

Circa 2007 in Philadelphia, PA. Back when digital photography was still becoming popular and panoramas weren’t as easy as a rotating your phone. This is a combination of HDR (blending 3 photos with 3 different exposures taken from the same position) and panaroma (stitching together photos from 10 different positions) for a total of 30 images combined into one image. From setting up a tripod, pressing the shutter on my DSLR, stitching the images together using Autopano Pro software and tuning the HDR it was about 8 hours worth of work. An oldie but still one of my more favorite panoramas I’ve taken and symbolizing a previous chapter in my life. Thanks friends and city of Philadelphia for all the adventures and life lessons. Some of you I take with me on my journey, parts of you I sadly must leave behind.

To a new chapter in Pacifica, CA. My new skyline going forward. This image took about 5 seconds to make with a single click and sweeping across the landscape with my phone.
