I have something brand new for you on MyFlyerTrains.org, I have taken up Panoramic Photography. Now you will be able to see photos of the rail sites that I visit in 360 degree panoramas; it is almost like being there! These photos will be able in 2 formats. The first is just a very wide JPEG / JPG image that will open in any standard browser. To move around the image you will use your browser’s scroll bars or your keyboard’s arrow keys.
The second and more interesting format is Quicktime VR. Your browser will need a Quicktime plug-in in order to view these files. This is the best way to experience these photo’s and you are able to use your mouse and keyboard to move all around in 360 degrees, seeing what is behind you, to the left, etc. I highly recommend that you give this a look. If you don’t have the correct plug-in, it is available for free from the Apple website.
Clicking on the photo below will take you into my new Panoramic photo album which displays 12 images that I took at the Savannah Roundhouse Railroad Museum on the last day of March.

I am excited about this new format and look forward to bringing you Quicktime VR content from various rail sites as I am able to revisit them. I also plan to bring you photos from train shows, where I am permitted to take photos. I hope you enjoy these new photos. As always your comments are greatly appreciated!
