When you run out of ideas for a weekend trip… there is nothing like a quiet evening.
Panorama (definition) = A picture representing a continuous scene.
Panorama (for me) = Perspective

MY SCHOOL, Mapusa – Goa
This is my alma mater! What never fails to impress me is this facade and its sheer magnificence. It is a towering landmark that you cannot miss while entering Mapusa from PanjimThe picture was taken at the time of the Passing – out Parade – a ceremonious event held each year to bid adieu to students of Std X.
GATEWAY OF INDIA, Mumbai
Running through some old panos and found this one. To be honest, with all the classes and activity out here, I began missing Mumbai. It seemed ages since I was there… The Gateway of India was one place where I’ve always loved to spend time. The jostling crowds, the smell of the sea, the pesky photographers… it’s Mumbai for you!
DONA PAULA SUNSET, Goa
Reached this spot at the right photographic moment. A cloud filled sky at dusk with a couple of ships at the horizon and an expanse of water all around. I got my camera into its panorama mode and cherish the output till date.

QUEGDEVELIM BEACH, GOA
In my research on the Reis Magos fort using Google maps, I chanced upon a tiny beach on the other side of the Mandovi river. It was called Quegdevelim and nicknamed, Shell collector’s Paradise.
RIVER MANDOVI, PANAJI – GOA
This panorama is the outcome of 9 images stitched together. From Left to right you can see: A floating casino, the housing complex atop Betim, the dome of the legilative assembly of Goa, some more casinos, the Mandovi bridge, the Patto bridge, and finally the capital city of Goa on the other bank.
KALA ACADEMY, GOA
While wandering around the lobby of the Kala Academy, the blend of reality and illusion caught my eye. I was lucky to be carrying my digicam and decided to go for a few panoramas. It’s up to you to decide what is real and what is not.
CORJUEM FORT, GOA
BONDLA WILDLIFE SANCTUARY, GOA
MUSSOORIE TRIP ’09
Received a few questions about how these images were captured and so I thought I would add a note to that:
1. Firstly, the individual images are clicked without a tripod! Using a tripod though makes things much easier as you will shortly realise
2. The camera used was my trusty Sony H50. (You can use any digital camera to get panoramas like this!)
3. Care should be taken while taking the individual pics. What I usually do is pan the cam first without clicking using my palm as a pivot. I then take individual frames keeping 30% of overlap between the previous and the next. All these should be done in manual mode else the there will be unwanted compensation and other in camera effects that affect the stitching.
4. I then transfer the snaps to the comp. Using a program called PTGui gives me the most flexible stitch.
5. Final post-processing and cropping in Photoshop CS2 and bingo! you have your pano ready!
So get out there with your digi cam and take a few panos and let me know!
