    Thanks ... I have been doing this hobby now for about a year and a half and every day provides some sort of unique excitement that was never planned ... only anticipated :)

    Each time I approach someone, what I usually say to them is differnt than what I have ever said before. I analyze the situation and then step forward with a comment or a question. It usually breaks the ice, except for one time, I told a lady that her image wold be posted to the internet and she took off movin pretty fast. She was going to be in a GigaPan until I mentioned the word internet. I sort of wondered what sort of stuff she looks at on the net???

    I continue to be fascinated by your apparent ability to get passing strangers to appear in your gigapans - I would love to hear what you say to people. There must be something in what you say or how you say it. Or is it simply in the nature of US citizens to help out when asked? Without wanting to stereotype, I think it is interesting to compare how you an I work in this respect. You, a US citizen, have no problems walking up to strangers whereas I, with my English upbringing would not dream of doing so - my intuition is that to do so would be to violate someone's privacy. (I am not say that that is what you are doing - just what my gut reaction to the idea is.) On the other hand, I have no problem walking in to a corporate establishment, asking to see the manager, and asking for permission to take photos in their railway station/stately home/whatever. In these circumstances my attitude is that if I come across as polite and self-assured there is no reason at all why they should refuse - I almost expect to be given permission as though it is the most natural thing in the world.
