I started my Panoramio account after a trip to Redding CA. I was fascinated with the investment the town made in the wonderfully beautiful Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge. I spent several hours with my little canon Elph 300SD trying to capture the essence of the bridge. Fortunately, the sunset was outstanding that evening. Ever since, I have been challenged and attracted to photographing large structures - especially bridges. I also try to view the areas that I visit in a way that I can capture the unique personality. My heartfelt thanks goes out to you all around the world for your support and interest. If we all just try to understand each other and realize when we load google earth that we are all brothers and sisters on this big blue ball and we need to figure out how to work together. Service like Panoramio can help us all understand each others point of view.
