Doing a 180

Over the past four months, as I've travel around the US, I've been making some panoramic photos. These are made by taking anywhere from six to 12 photos across a 180 degree arc, and then stitching them together after the fact to make a single continuous photo which encompasses a 180 degree field of view. They don't look especially good so small, so click any of them for a larger size.

Speaking of 180's, I'm heading back to the west coast this week. I'll be going to Seattle for a week and a half to volunteer at a summer camp for kids with cancer. I expect to travel on again after that.
