I discovered the merge photoshop application that just blew me away. I have always been a fan of taking and combining sequential images and until now have relied on either cutting and pasting the old fashioned way with glue and scissors or more recently using some rudimentary digital techniques. But this trick allows me to seamlessly stitch two or three images together as one continuous image. Here are some of my first experiments. Buckingham Fountain in Chicago was taken last summer. The rest were taken recently in the midst of a cold Chicago winter in front of and behind my home.
