The World Wide Panorama 4/22/04 Description:
180 VR Panoramas from 40 countries, all taken on the Equinox, March 20, 2004 (Quicktime)
Comments:VR panoramas aren't new, but they sure are cool. There's thousands of them around the web, but according to the people behind today's pick, "the world in general seems hardly to have noticed." Feeling that VR photography "deserves to be seen by more people," they came up with the idea of a "coordinated VR panorma shoot on the day of the Equinox, March 20." The response was "enthusiastic" and the site contains 180 panoramas from 40 countries. "This is a non-commercial project, done simply to create enthusiasm for VR photography, and provide an outlet for our collective creativity." Right on...

a subjective vision of the city and artistic attributes which are grafted there... (Flash)
I've got to get to this French city sometime. If it hasn't changed since 2002, there's trucks and vans everywhere with graffiti on them – big colorful murals that fill the sides. Today's pick serves up hundreds of photos of city scenes with streetart including stickers and brushed art. There's also a section with photos of various exhibitions. I like the interface too – choose a background soundtrack and view a few series in autoplay mode – nice...

fashion and social justice – a project focusing on clothing as a vehicle to comment on the garment industry (Flash)
It's not like coolstop to feature a fashion catalog, but today is different. A good catalog should present the most important information about each product so the consumer can make an informed purchase decision. Few catalogs get that right, but today's pick does. Before you plop down $49.95 for that blouse, you may want to know that it cost about a dollar to make. Learn that and more while enjoying artsy design and photography...

travel tales, tips and photos for the terminally restless
If you don't like the khaki, switch to simple and grey. Both looks are visually pleasing and a third choice gives a more text-oriented version for printing. When Ally's feet start to itch, it's a sign that travel is in his near future. This young Australian's site documents his trips throughout Europe and Asia in photos with commentary plus articles. There's some very cool photos (like this one) and his "pitiful attempts at writing" are anything but! This is interesting stuff...

I take photographs
His name is Brain and I believe that's a Polaroid he's using. Photography can be fun. There's people with painted faces posing in "you're pretty." The odd "wife beater" narrative ends in a flame war. A number of other series have some very cool people pictures, to say the least. And I wouldn't wanna leave out what I enjoyed most – Brain's collages! [DWT < Lounge72#]
