She really does have a great eye for photojournalism, as Steven said. IIRC, she's the one who inherited her photographic skills from Sharon, right?

Exactly, it's genetics. I'm hoping I inherited some of it.

Sadly, my MD friends say what you inherit from your kids is insanity.

Default The Sistene Chapel

Amazing 365 degree view.

From NPR on Tumblr, a team from Villanova University was given unprecedented access to the chapel over five nights to compile the necessary images. “Several thousand digital photographs were taken with an advanced motorized camera rig and then digitally stitched together, color-corrected, and post-processed by Villanova team members to create a cubic panorama file that presents the Chapel in a three-dimensional projection.”

Ted: that is magnificent, thanks for posting that! I never knew the amount of artwork in the Sistine Chapel. It is so much more than I expected. Those guys did an excellent job of creating that photo cubic panorama.

Good photo, too. Taken with a Rollei 35T film camera.

As you can imagine for a city that only gets snow once every few years, it was chaos there earlier this week.
