I’ve added a new “360 Panoramas” category to this blog so you can find all the posts which contain a 360 panorama shared here. With only a few exceptions, these are 360 panoramas I’ve taken as we have been sailing around the world. They are all full 360 panoramas (spherical) enabling you to look up, down, and all around. I am a big fan of this kind of photography because it gives you such a feeling of immersion in the location taken.
I’m also a big fan of 360Cities.Net which is a repository of 360s by photographers all over the world. All the photos are geo-referenced (geo-tagged) to where they were taken and (those matching Google’s criteria) can be viewed on Google Maps or in Google Earth. I especially like the desktop based viewer for 360Cities which is fast, can be viewed full screen, and has a lot of nice features like icons pointing at other nearby panoramas, a link to a map that shows the location and direction of view, and more. Unfortunately, the viewer doesn’t work on mobile devices at this time. But, I think they are working on solutions for that problem.
The link to the new category currently goes to nearly 50 posts showing one or more panoramas. There are not only some interesting photos, but also some interesting stories about our adventures at the locations of these photos. You can also view all my 360s at 360Cities. So, feel free to peruse and enjoy the visual delights!
Bonus points to anyone who can tell me where I am taking the 360 in the photo above.
