Transportation is a fitting theme in my life right now. My family and I will soon be moving to a new house. Every day, more of our possessions are packed and stuffed into the POD (moving container) in our driveway.

My WWP submission is the inside of the POD. It's a cramped space, just 8' wide by 8' high by 16' long and already half-full of junk. This container will transport most of our smaller possessions. A moving company will lug our furniture and large items to the new house.

Technically, this is one of my worst panos in a long time. I didn't get my sorry self out of the way so you see my legs in part of the pano. Rather than going for circular (180 degree by 180 degree) fisheye photos, I shot zoomed in, giving me a cropped circle. This led to little overlap to play with and thus many stitching errors. Views "straight ahead" and behind are correctly vertical, but when you look side-to-side, the walls seemed to be tipped. I tried setting vertical control points but then everything went haywire. So, I gave up and left the tilt--don't get dizzy as you pan! The top of the POD is translucent white, so the up-photo isn't as overexposed as it looks.
