Some interesting pic sites, videos

Came across some interesting photo links the last day or so.

First up, this is a 13 gigapixel image taken of Harlem and is zoomable to the 'enth degree. It's pretty cool, as diespite how much you zoom you still get a great deal of detail. Pretty cool. Do a Google search for other gigapixel images and you'll come up with a number of sites.

Next up, Robert Hanishiro, a staff sports photog with USA Today rigged up a three camera set-up in the outfield during Barry Bonds chase for the all-time home run record last month. He rigged them together to shoot a sequence equal that of 30 frames per second. Here's the resulting gallery he got that night after chasing him for 11 games (he traveled with over 175 pounds of gear). Here's a link to a video on how he did it, hosted by his great sports photojournalism site Sports Shooter.

Finally, here's a link to a video about the photographers at the New Orleans Times-Picayune who photographed the devestation of Hurricane Katrina. Their photos contributed to their winning the Pulitizer. It's about 25 mins long, but worth giving your time to.
