Yesterday, my town had a TEA party (no, I'm not going politikal, as much as i would like to. ), the crowd was over 3,000. This may have been the largest single gathering of folks ever in one place in the history of our town and county. Amazing. The people were spread out over a large area at the fairgrounds. With colorful shirts, flags and signs it was a pretty incredible sight.
Why I'm kickin' self..... I brought my old camera, the Sony. Left the new fancy-dancy Olympus at home. Why? Good question. It has so many features, I'm still learning how to use the thing. It is a technological wonder, no doubt. But requires a huge learning curve, or a smart Cub Scout, to operate.
It has a panoramic feature. Just set to that and move in an arc to take the panorama. It automatically adjusts for hand wiggle and 'stitches' the scene together to make a seamless panoramic shot. This event was made for such a use. But my new gizzy was setting at home on the desk. No dramatic pano picture. And maybe never again such an opportunity. History lost.
