10100 x 1600, photos many. The photos were taken from 7:49 to 8:14 AM on the 4th of July, 2011. There were in fact over 230 photos. I was attempting a multi-ring circular panorama. It would have resulted in a pattern that roughly looks like an S on its side, two grins side-by-side, or two eyes touching. For some examples, please see Crossing Aurora Avenue Bridge, Near Sphere Panorama of Waterfront Park, and Light and Darkness. But key pieces were missing on the half looking back at the West Seattle Bridge, so I decided just to keep the half facing North. But then there was a structure that was a little too close and consequently dominated the panorama on the right so I decided to trim that out. Then there were traffic signs on the left. I trimmed those out. Then there are the harbor cranes on the left and right. I trimmed enough on the right to make them equally distant from the borders. But one set appears higher than the other, and well, there you have some of the broken symmetry behind this panorama.
