Brenizer bike

I’ve been read­ing late­ly about the Breniz­er method (some­thing I’ve appar­ent­ly been doing already, with­out know­ing that’s what it’s called). Essen­tial­ly, you take a bunch of pho­tos of a still sub­ject, then stitch them togeth­er into one image. The result­ing panora­ma will have the depth-of-field (ie, back­ground blur) of a sin­gle pho­to tak­en with a much, much wider lens.

North Hill campus

ACC North Campus

I don’t recall ever being on ACC’s North Hill cam­pus since, well, since ACC took it over. On my ride today, I decid­ed to stop in and see the sights.

The main build­ing, pic­tured above, was part of the Bran­don Men­tal Health Cen­tre before the grounds were pur­chased by the Col­lege.

Behind that build­ing I found a love­ly lit­tle park-like space.

Also back there was a chim­ney tow­er so tall it took three pho­tos to cap­ture it all, stitched togeth­er using hug­in.

A very tall chimney

I also found a sec­ondary build­ing where a cou­ple small trees appear to have tak­en root in the brick­work.

I was quite enam­oured of the shad­ows in the one pho­to, and I can’t decide if I pre­fer it in colour, or in black and white. What’s your pref­er­ence?

Bike ride birds

Red-winged blackbird

I biked about 12km this after­noon, and I took my cam­era along with me. I saw some geese (so many geese) and what I think was a red-winged black­bird.
