Behind the scene : moving onThis is the bare minimum of a photographic panorama: south, east, north, west, up for focus, down for future. It makes the scene into a viewing box with artificial boundaries. The up view of plaque on nearby rock is Photoshopped to give a feel for the transforming emotions involved in the events of September 11, 2001. The down view contrasts the horizontal rocks with the upright vertical tree, separated by vivid healthy heart-shaped growing green leaves. It symbolizes life containing and surviving tragedies.
It is probably the worst of the few panoramas I've done this year. For nine years I loved twirling in space, but lately I'm attracted to moving in time. Also, my recent QTVRs had Adobe Flash tracks, which came to a stop with QuickTime 7. So this could be my last panorama, for the time being.
