I love to photograph, I always have. From the Instamatic when I was a child to my digital camera now. I remember the suspense when I was able to pick up the photos after a long wait to see what had become of my efforts to take a nice shot. When I started to work I bought a SLR, an Olympus OM 10 with several lenses, filters and a tripod. When I travelled I had to carry an extra bag if I wanted to take photo’s. I think I bought my first digital camera about 10 years ago. Now I own a Panasonic FZ28, which is “just” a point and shoot. It’s outdated, but still serving me well. A few years a go I bought my first iPhone. I now own the iPhone 4s with a pretty good lens and loads of great apps. One of them allows me to take panorama photo’s. It let’s make take several overlapping photo’s of a scene which it stitches together to a very nice looking panorama.
These photo’s I took during our last stay in Lugano, Switzerland (click on the photo for a larger version). The canton Ticino is a beautiful area we hardly can get enough of. I always make loads of photo’s and this year also for the first time about a dozen panorama photo’s. For these photo’s I used AutoStitch. The native app of iPhone, Camera, now has its own panorama function which is also very nice.
