The Parking Buddy’s Hut: Vertical Panorama

Table for…? Service might be, … well… unsteady here.

It’s actually a panorama (vertical) from four shots (as if you couldn’t guess)… There is some distortion, still. Patrice is always encouraging me to go closer. I kinda wish I’d gone upto the front door now. Peered inside… but I didn’t.
I expected the grumpy old man to jump out and ask what I was upto… Of course, I’d have said: “Table for 2, please”! Somehow, I think it’s been a while since anyone was working inside that booth.
The pano topped out at 275MB so in my little old machine, editing became choppy (PC with 8GB of memory). I think it’s time to use my $$$ to buy a bigger/faster/more evil machine! 8000px by 9000 approx.
I was tempted to click the enhance button to see how much bigger the file would get… but I’ve no ambition to do night shift, tonight. I actually gave up editing it as it was… I’d need to shrink it down to something my PC can chew on. This will cause it to choke!

About Photowalkers

What is Photowalkers?

Photowalkers is a group that encourages you to get out and see Taiwan, take photographs and improve your photography, as well as making new friends who share the same passion. Started in 2014, Billy Stagner intended Photowalkers as a bridge between expat and local photographers in an informal language exchange.

The group has transformed since then into a group of people who share a passion for taking photographs all around Taiwan. You’ll be sure to find something of interest, whether you’re interested in scenery or street photography or pretty flowers during Cherry Blossom season.

How can I get involved?

We’ve organized a wide variety of events, including Guandu Temple and River Walk, Tamsui River and Fisherman’s Wharf, Yehliu Geopark, and Hsinchu City Streets. Trips are set up well in advance for a Saturday or Sunday and are mostly held in the Taipei Metropolitan area, though occasionally we may go further afield.

What do I need?

Photographers come from a variety of backgrounds, but all share an enthusiasm for photography, whether they are novice, hobbyist or professional, all are welcome. So you can bring whatever camera you usually use, whether it’s an ordinary camera, mobile phone, or DSLR.

What should I do when I attend?

You could come without any camera at all! Shoot as many or as few pictures as you would like. Some trips have been followed by social occasions like dinner or drinks; others have resulted in photography exhibitions; and there have even been helpful photography critiques.

“Come in with an open mind and a positive attitude and you’re bound to make friends, learn about photography or help others improve as photographers! You’ll experience cool and interesting places around Taiwan while sharing many perspectives from fellow group members,” said Billy Stagner.

It’s a philosophy we’ve striven to realize in the Photowalkers. We hope you’ll agree! For more information about Photowalkers, check out the Facebook Group.
