Note: High resolution images of some of the following photos are available. These photos are marked with [HiRes] tags in their captions. Click on the photos to view their higher resolution images.

A panorama (formed from Greek πᾶν "all" + ὅραμα "sight") is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting, drawing, photography, film/video, or a three-dimensional model.

Or, in laymen's terms, panorama photos are photos with big width-to-height ratio, and are often combined images of two or more shots.

If you've been following my photo posts for the past few months, you may realise that I have a tendency to shoot photos in portrait (or vertical) rather than landscape (horizontal).

However I recently discovered an open-sourced Linux panorama stitcher called Hugin. And I immediately realised that while landscape photos don't appeal much to me, ultra-wide panoramas are simply breathtaking.

I've played around with Hugin a lot for the past few days and I think I've gotten the hang of it. However, I still need more field-practice when it comes to shooting. With any luck, I may post some quality panos here soon.

Here's a little preview -- a cylindrical projection of my 3-in-one-room, the kitchen, dining room and living room.

54, Sillitoe Court
[HiRes] 54, Sillitoe Court. I'm gonna miss this room some time soon. Stitched image of 8 photos. Click on it for the high-res version, it's worth the extra loading time!


  1. ur 3-in-1 room so spacious!! so nice :D

  2. ah haha. it isn't actually THAT spacious. the projection makes it seem bigger than it actually is, especially the empty space around where the camera was held.
