So I took my cool new camera with me as I ran errands this morning, going shopping over at Trader Joe's. Eventually, I'll start taking pictures of people, but for now it's birds and buildings.
I stood on a little hill in one of the many parks that dot Lake Merritt, and thought I would try my luck at taking several pictures that could be spliced together for a panoramic view. The white building on the far left is the courthouse, the large building just to the left of the street sign is the Kaiser Center.
Here's the second half of the panorama. Anyone can see where the pictures are spliced together because I'm using a really basic Paint program to do the splicing. Soon, I'm going to upgrade the computer I use to hook up to the Internet, trading out my laptop and using a newer desktop instead. That computer has PhotoShop, and my cropping and color balancing should get better.
