I had never been in an airplane, never been to a different continent. It was my first real holiday, at leat that’s what it was supposed to be. It turned out a very different experience than I had expected. It was an eye-opener. A film-noir in real life.
Panoramic photography has always been one of those subjects that I wanted to try out. Normally you would use this technique to make horizontal panoramas, a picture showing a wide view of the scene. However – what I tried was to hold the camera rotated on its side so I could take photos from top to bottom or the other way around.
