H. P. Lovecraft’s Providence and Beyond in Widescreen Panoramas!


The Ultimate View of College Hil, Providence, Rhode Island, from 20_Aug-1990.

Providence, Rhode Island – College Hill – Panorama Number 1, Benefit Square to Providence Harbor (North to South)
My Favorite Providence Panorama!

This is the closest you will ever get to what I saw on August 20th., 1990, from the (now closed to the public) rooftop of One Financial Plaza!

Download this panorama, then zoom in until it fills your screen from top to bottom, and pan from left to right to get a real sense of what I saw when I looked out over College Hill.

This view still haunts my dreams; and I now share it with you!

I’ve been experimenting with Autostitch, a free, fully-automatic, 2D photo-panorama image stitcher, to create panoramas of some of the photos I shot in Providence and Boston in 1990 (which are on display at http://www.flickr.com/photos/cthulhuwho1/collections/); and when the pictures blend together properly, they can can create an image that is far closer to what I saw with my naked eyes; and they are wonderful.

Some of the experiments were hard to crop cleanly, but I decided to leave those images online too, because they still display a wider world view.

Let me know what you think of these “widescreen” Lovecraftian images.
