Note: Very worthwhile higher-res version HERE in case you were hopping to spot a nude sunbather in the park.

This is a 3-D composite shot of New York's Central Park and the surrounding buildings stitched together by photographer Sergey Semonov using a bunch of panoramic pictures he took during a helicopter ride. Me? I've never ridden in a helicopter before. "Wow -- fascinating story, GW." Right? I'm thinking about writing a book about it.

Thanks to Douglas V, who thought about doing the same thing in Paris but got a bad feeling from the mime helicopter pilot and bailed on the project. It's for the best.
