This is a view of my office, taken from its northwestern corner. There is a lot to find here. Can you find 1) the thermostat 2) the small scale model of Nike, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, 3) the rabbit that I pull out of a hat when I do math-e-magic, 4) my old college text books (hint: find the PL-I and Fortran texts 5) a gift from Archbishop Desmond Tutu (hint, it is not signed) 6) a picture of me with my student Frank when he graduated, 7) a Buddha statue, 8) a depiction of my daughter's life in a fabric timeline, made when she was 9 years old, 9) a bottle that had contained the world's best soft drink?

    Vicki, your office GigaPan really looks nice after you geocoded it. I wish that every geocoded their GigaPans.

    Thanks, Kilgore! I have geocoded it now. I'll be posting a lot of these this summer - I'll be spending two weeks in Greece this month, and two weeks in Alaska in July. And I will remember - MUST GEOCODE!

    David brought this image to my attention and I have to agree with him and Tom. This a great shot, full of detail. More like this please! (And geocode, geocode, geocode! :-)

    Perhaps Kilgore will come out later. I just took a snapshot on the Acropolis gigapan to which you pointed. I have never been to Bath, although that is on the agenda for my next trip to England, whenever that will be. On this next trip to Greece I will actually get to see more than Alexandroupolis, Athens, and Samothrace (believe it or not, these are the only 3 places I have visited in Greece during my 3 trips), and I plan to take gigapans at these places as time allows. Do you suppose the British Museum would permit taking a gigapan back in the gallery where the Elgin marbles reside?

    Vicki, if we can find Kilgore, he too may make a few comments as well. All I can say is: if I wanted to go to Greece, I would book a flight to London, visit the British Museum and see the Elgin Marbles www.gigapan.org/gigapans/4803/snaps hots/15166/ , and then catch the train to Bath and stay there for a couple of weeks and hang-out around the Greek architecture. Tom and Kilgore are the world travellers ... I only visit England. I admire brave people that actually visit Greece, and hope that you have a fantastic time and take more beautiful GigaPans of Greece as you have done before.

    I second David's praise, Vicki. Interiors are hard to shoot. You've done an excellent job here.
