A Panoramic Stitch-Up

Recently, I have been feeling the need to make some panoramic shots of my walks and have been waiting for the time when I can upgrade my iphone for the new one which does super-duper panoramic panning shots.  Well, who am I kidding?  That’s just not going to happen!  So I decided to see what I could do with a couple of apps I already have and started to play around with them.  The results were intriguing and I got carried away with the possibilities.  Here are a few of my initial experiments.  (click on them to enlarge the image)

It is my habit to take more than one photo of the same subject.  Stitching these single images together proved to be an interesting digital version of a Hockney style montage.

My Exoskeleton

Carapace. Noun. Hard outer coating of certain organisms such as arthropods and turtles. syn: shell, cuticle, shield.

While we are on the subject of hard outer coatings, (apropo previous post, Crustaceans), by changing one simple vowel for another in the middle of the word carapace, turns it into my very own version: caropace.

IMG_3105IMG_3106Caropace. Noun. Tough outer coating of a certain Homo sapiens, more commonly known by the name, Caro.  syn: a virtual outer shell invisible to the naked eye designed to protect the soft, sensitive and vulnerable interior spaces of this particular being.
