One of the cool things about living in Auckland is the proximity to islands and volcanos. A while back we were tooling around on Rongitoto and I took some pictures with the intention of stitching them together into a panorama. A friend's project at work netted me some interest and a whole lot more knowledge of photo-stitching. After vanquishing apathy and ignorance, I produced this.

You can't escape cannibalism


I've put off taking this quiz as long as possible, partly because I was a wary of scoring higher than my husband and partly because I was wary of scoring lower than my husband. Now it's settled.

We didn't do a very good job of photographing the partial eclipse tonight, but we did have fun watching. For the record, the pinhole camera is nearly worthless. We finally did figure out how to use our binoculars to project a reasonably good view of the sun with a bite out of it. If I were watching again, I'd have some sort of tripod mounted telescope with a camera set to take time lapse photos. That would have been cool! :-)
