Diversion


This is what it looks like standing on the edge of a field of corn on a bridge over a brook with reed warblers chattering below - and just the faintest shadow of a robot.

No work on the Olivetti this week - the plumber's been in fitting a new bathroom so it is bagged-up under the bed. But the sun's been shining and I have been out and about trying my new wide angle lens. And sometime yesterday, Typewriter Heaven gave its ten thousandth page view. Imagine that!

  2. Nice shot - I love the smell of English fields. A friend of mine is moving up Oxford-way soon... must be something in the air.

  3. Few years ago, I did a robot which was able to capture 400 to 500 photos in 180° horizontally and about 80° vertically and then merged them to panoramic photos with over 2000 megapixels (gigapixel, see also "gigapan project", they did the same commercially.)

  4. I like this panoramic shot very much, so painterly. Almost has a Van Gogh feel.

  5. Ton: Thanks and quite so. Bringing you the finest wheat fields, without the schlep.
