Photosynth: Big Boy Legs
This is a Microsoft Photosynth of a statue outside of Christman Studios in the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood where I live.
I used the Canon G10 to take 118 photos of it - slowly circling so I could get as many angles as possible. It's a little awkward to use, but an interesting test of the technology. To view it you'll probably need to download some of the software, but it lets you spin around the legs and view them from most angles.
It took my low-power laptop computer about an hour to process the photos. I want to explore future pictures with this - it's an interesting way to look at a subject, and very easy to do.
The legs themselves are 1/2 of a statue in the Chrisman Studios area. The top half is also nearby - it used to be in front of a grocery story.
