Caption

The description of most of my 360VR panoramas can be started with the word "once".

For example: "One day a rocket was launched at Baikonur Cosmodrome..." or "Once I found myself at a military parade on Red Square, next to Putin..."

The history of this panorama:
Once I photographed the opening ceremony of the Estonian Song Celebration, which starts with the traditional lighting of the flame atop the tower. The photo camera was fixed on a six-meter long pole. I began to expand the pole and my friend photographed me at the same time. At the moment when the fire was lighted, my friend scream to me: "Andrew! The camera! The flame!!!"

I looked up and see that the flame is directed towards the camera by the wind!

As a result of this incident, some plastic parts from the photo camera melted and the case of the PocketWizard remote control most damaged. But PocketWizard itself remained in working condition, I had to change only the case.
