I think I can read the bassoonist’s music from here

An insane 1.4-gigapixel image of Obama's inaugural address.

All it needs is a guy in the audience dressed like Waldo.

    I found waldo he is sitting behind the large white tower in the center-right. He appears to be about ~20ft behind the tower and he is holding a camera, sitting directly on the ground.

    Wow.  It looks as if Clarence Thomas fell asleep in the audience…  (A few yards behind Obama, to the left of Scalia.)

    WaldoFinder is my hero effective immediately.  Contract specifies at least 4 hours of herodom before replacement.  Hero-dom is thereafter at-will.

    Neat photo. :)

    There’s a Photosynth of the event, too:


    Not one of the best examples I’ve seen of Photosynth but interesting all the same. (Some of the ones on the website are great.) I like the way the people on the stage change as you move around it due to it using images taken at different times. It’s quite a surreal effect.

    At first I thought he snapped 220 cameras at the same time to make that gigantic pic. That’s not unrealistic considering 120 cameras were used to shoot a car commercial, see  http://breezesys.com/MultiCamera/index.htm

    Assuming each of those Canon 30D + lens is $1000 (quantity discount!), that’s $120k of cameras for one commercial.

    Aretha looks a bit odd…looks like their photo assembly has a few glitches.  (She’s a few rows behind Cheney.)

    There’s a pair of lower legs with no person attached, about one quarter of the width of the photo from the left, just below the waist high fence.
