Photographer's Note

Sony Center Panoramas

Quite coincidentally, my foto's of today are exactly adjoining Lars' TE-post of yesterday. (https://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Germany/East/Berlin/Berlin/photo1588616.htm))
Three completely different impressions of the Sony Center in Berlin than the Red, White and Blue photo of Lars and yet more or less recognizable the same space.

Modern digital cameras have often a setting to take wide panoramic photos.
By moving the camera slowly horizontally (or verticaly) with this setting, a wide panorama can be made.
The camera does what we used to be able to do with a stitch program. Stick consecutive photos together.

In an indoor space, and certainly in an environment with many details, this gives a whimsical and alienating almost abstract result.

In the game of forms, the original lines and planes can be clearly recognized, but because they no longer are connected, a whole new graphic form play is created.
The result is, in my opinion, a photo that shows even better the atmosphere of the Sony Center's roof construction than a traditional photo.

I'll show you three examples of this fenomeen.
