Last Minute Posts are usually bad

It is nearly 1:00 am and I should have been in bed long ago, being old and all.  Slow day today.  Tanya went to the market this morning looking to buy a birch tree for our front yard.  No trees there today but she did buy a few flowers including another rose bush.  Of course it rained the rest of the day so she couldn't set them out, so she went to visit Masha instead. Me, I stayed home and caught up on the news.  Tomorrow I start a business plan for a new client.

The following was circulated via email (Thanks, Kristi) but I thought it was interesting enough to post.  You really cannot hide any more.  Time to buy a balaclava.

You used to be able to get lost in the crowd, but not anymore. This is a photograph of 2009 Obama Inauguration. You can see IN FOCUS the face of EACH individual in the crowd !!!  You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd.  .  . Wait a few seconds. Double click anywhere  . And the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up. The picture was taken with a robotic 1474 megapixel camera (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera).  Every one attending could be scanned after the event, should something have gone wrong during it.

  1. Wow, what an amazing picture!

    The Obama crowd shot wasn't too bad either.

  2. The gigapan crowd shot is pretty interesting. If you click on the link to the gigapan site they show some things in the picture like being able to read the label and a person's water bottle.
