The Door

Back in May of 2007 I was sent to Groton Ct for work. I got into town the day before my meeting so I went over the bridge to New London. I went to the downtown area and found a pub to get something to eat and a few pints. The downtown area was very interesting to me. I live in a flat suburb so the geography of a “Small Northern town” is intriguing to me.

When I saw this door I was thought it would make a great photo. When I got back home and looked at it I was less excited about it. Know looking at the photos over a year later I like it again.

My Photosynth

For those that haven't heard Microsoft has a program called Photosynth that takes a collection of picture and puts them together in a virtual 3D world. And it’s free. So I gave it a go and it worked fairly well.

Navigating the 3D space takes some getting used to but not too difficult. If you don't figure it out you can just press play and it will go through all the photos. I could not find a way to add more photos to an existing Synth, thus the two versions of the same title. It would be nice to have a way to link photos that the program doesn't figure out. But that might be very difficult to do on the programming side. I think it is amazing it does what it does. So give it a look or even a try. Just upload some photos of a place or think and it does all the work.
