I am a Boston area photographer/artist that travels frequently and particularly likes to shoot photos of manhole covers, clouds, seaweed, rocks, trees and rivers from new vantage points and that have unique and peculiar features. As a young boy, I climbed around many of the same places, except now I have a bit more visual wisdom of my middle age, a good camera, and a supportive wife (she does all my framing) and 2 children (they keep me young). -- All of my panoramas were and are taken as a series of photos in sequence and stitched together in Photoshop Elements or Photoshop. -- Shooting sequences to the left or right is called panning the camera, thus a panorama. Shooting sequences up and down is called tilting the camera, thus I invented the word tilitorama. The experience of shooting the starting and ending shots and the many shots along the path in between is part of the task at hand. In this way the action of moving my eyes around the scene, is similar to the tradition of video, film and even painting. The technical controls of focus, exposure and time, as well as capturing specific moments, is in the tradition of photography. I am constantly in a process of integrating and balancing these traditions. The fact that most of these digital photo images contain enough pixel detail to print over 8 feet long on canvas and other materials, is non-traditional -- If you would like to see more of my photos, check out my photo website www.frangardino.com -- FG

Nice photo! I remember how the air had an undeniable peanut-butter aroma thanks to Teddie. When you say "no more," do you mean that location has been closed? I've not been by in some time.

I went to a great interview today with Jim Dine in Framingham MA and gave him a small print and a link to this page. I hope he enjoys it. His work has inspired me for 40+ years.

This image also won an "Honorable Mention" at the "Passion" show at the Marblehead Art Association on display during the month of Feb 2011. - FG
