Yet one more place that's not taking full advantage of its potential. I can't even imagine how cool this would look lit up, but I suppose that electric bills being what they are, and community theater being as much of a red-headed step-child as it is, one can't be too demanding. Downtown North Platte is a pretty neat place, quite a few older buildings (for the U.S. anyway), and lots of alleys between blocks, a feature that I particularly think is not appreciated nearly enough. It looks like a pretty sleepy little town, but like it was quite a booming thing in its day. Folks should move out of the huge cities, and learn to appreciate some of these out of the way gems.
Really enjoying your travelling show n1w. It true what you say, its a pity more city folk don't get out and about and enjoy the these beuatiful places.
Howdu, marbiz. It's my pleasure to share my odd travels now and again. I'm glad you find some of what I find interesting, too.
Good one full size, so much detail.
Does Bill O and Hannity appear hear, N1W??
Cheers, Tony in New Zealand
Thank you, Helen. I'm thinking that I need to go ahead and get Photoshop, as the leaning of the buildings toward the top makes it look like they're going to fall over.
I'm not sure, Tony. It's a bit out of the way for them, and they might not appreciate the small gate they'd bring in. Good eye for that, though. ☺
....ha ha, all my buildings are about to topple!!! Now I have Picasa at least I can straighten the horizons. Some of my earlier Pano pics are shockers, wish I could retro-straighten them. H
I'm laughing at your "shockers", Helen. I love wide angle shots and all that they can pull in, but the strange angles that appear are a bit off-putting, that's for sure. I wonder if that's how Pisa got its idea for a building that's pitched over?
I once saw someone on Panoramio explaining how to straighten buildings (probably on Photohop), but it might as well have been in Swahili - I didn't understand a word.
I get the general idea of it, but I don't fully understand how the program can extrapolate the needed information to add structure to even things up. I guess it depends on symmetry and repeated pattern to hold sway.
