These standard-VGA-sized (640x480 pixel) images were taken with an original Epson PhotoPC digital camera.
|Catalina Island viewed from the south side of the Palos Verdes penninsula near Point Vicente (the location of the former Marineland).|
|Sunset at Laguna Beach near Dana Point|
|San Gabriel mountains and Mt Baldy viewed from Kellogg Hill (high point near the junction of the 57 and 10 freeways).|
These were shot with a Sony DKC-ID1 (distant forerunner of the D700). This camera produced a 572x768-pixel image at a time when most digicams were producing standard VGA 640x480 pixel pics.
|Shot on the high desert (Mohave) about 15 miles east of Palmdale, CA (northern Los Angeles county) about half an hour after sunset.|
|Downtown LA "smogset". Shot looking west from overcrossing on I-10 (San Bernardino) freeway about 2 miles east of downtown. The dirt and crud in LA's air does create extremely colorful sunsets (the colors in this were not enhanced in Photoshop!)|
|View from my office window looking south down I-710 (Long Beach) freeway. This is a normal-angle daylight view of the center part of the night superpan view below.|
|This 360-degree panaramic view was shot from from the roof of my office
in East Los Angeles about an hour before sunrise. It is a composite of 10 5-second time
exposures taken on Kodak Gold Max 800 film with a Canon EOS 620 35MM SLR. The negatives
were scanned with an original (SCSI) HP Photosmart film scanner. This was my first attempt
at assembling multiple photos into a superpan using Corel Paint 8.0.
Left-to-right, you can see a communicatons tower that is the hub of LA County's
private microwave network, sunrise over the San Gabriel mountains, the Long Beach freeway
(I-710), the city lights of East LA, and at the extreme right two radio towers that belong
to the LA County Sheriff and Fire Departments.
