Since this was Wednesday, this must have been taken on the campus of Rice University (I had just been to Fondren Library), and had my new camera lens with me and wanted to test taking a 360 with it and even though there were too many clouds; well, it was only to be a test. As I approached the center of the Engineering Quad, a student walked by and I asked her if she wanted to be in this GigaPan, but she was on the way to class. She recognized me as I had taken portraits of her at a campus costume party a few days before (soon to be uploaded to gigapan.org).
As she was leaving, Alicia came up to me and asked if I was Donald. It seems that she had won an employee award and was going to have her photo taken by the Engineering Department photographer whose name was Donald. To make a long story very short, in this GigaPan, we see Donald taking a few snaps of Alicia.
In this panorama, we see the three famous slabs of granite (tinyurl.com/RiceUniversity-EngineeringQuad ), Keck Hall (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/8855/) and Duncan Hall (www.gigapan.org/gigapans/9622/).
This hand-held 360-panorama was taken by my trusty Nikon D70 with a new lens, the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G. Additional details can be found on Stitcher Notes with information there concerning the GigaPan Stitcher run.
Note: This panorama can be seen in Google Earth as a beautiful 360-degree curved panorama on a curved surface by clicking the link, View in Google Earth (assuming that you have Google Earth installed on your computer).
