Panoramas, Composites and Triptychs

Modern digital photography allows for images that are hard to display as the conventional framed photo.

Panoramas require the camera to move to capture a larger space than the lens can capture without motion. These need to be displayed in a very large format.

Composites are digital splicings of several photos aligning the common elements to create larger images than would be feasible in one photo. These also tend to need a large display.

Triptychs are a display of three individual photos give a larger sense of space, or that allow for a story to unfold – the twirling motion of a dancing monk, for example.

Scroll down to view the images presented in these categories and notes about these images. More notes may be found at the bottom of the page.

I am intrigued with these possibilities. You are likely to see this gallery evolve.

There’s a lot of real estate over there! Do you know there is a geologic reason why skyscrapers aren’t found between Midtown and Downtown Manhattan?

NEPBH1116G3

At Trongsa Dzong, the oldest monastery in Bhutan at dusk, we heard a bell calling up a staircase. Inquiring we came to a courtyard where the master began to dance. Soon the novitiates began to dance as well – a riot of swirling robes!
Note PCT2

You may either order the images separately or all three to make a triptych!
