While on my usual expedition to Fondren Library, I met these two incredible ladies in Brochstein and spent a *most* enjoyable time showing them the sights around the campus and moments before we parted, we took this GigaPan of a very special moment-in-time on this wonderful day. And the view in Google Earth via the link is spectacular :)

In the second frame, Christina moved too fast for the camera shutter ... maybe it too was mesmerized by this scene un-folding before us:)

After the above GigaPan was taken, of all people, who do you think showed up? Right, Deian who many remember from this spectacular GigaPan taken last September: gigapan.com/gigapans/9620/snapshots/26838
NOTE: the missing frame of Jodi and Christina can be seen in this GigaPan:

    Moments before, I had just told them how you can see the GigaPans by clicking the link, "View in Google Earth," which is a must-do for this particular GigaPan :)

    I notice that their apparent energy level declined as the 'Pan went from left to right. The left-hand image is a hoot!

    Right and it was so unexpected. When I met them, well, the only reason I stopped to visit with them was because they had their cameras and were taking a photo. I stopped to take one of both of them and we, well I, stated talking about GigaPan technology and I had my computer with me and had access to *high*-speed WiFi and then I offerd to show them some vistas that they could take photos of Rice and an hour later, the GigaPan was taken and that was that... but most memorable to say the least.
