Night View of Seto - impressive panoramas of western Japan. (via Yakitori)

How utterly beautiful! Paradoxically, its greatest beauty is that many of the photographs, like this one could be of just about anywhere: LA, Lisbon, the suburbs of Paris.

Oh - and go for the BIG panoramas every time! Goes well with the old Sakamoto soundtrack too...

Thanks, juju!

...could be of just about anywhere

I was thinking the same when a couple times I thought I had already clicked that one! But they are beautiful. Thanks madam.

A looped soundtrack of nighttime noises from the scene would complete the immersion and be a simple addition, I wonder why more panorama artists don't do this, the ones that do are neat. It works well in crowded shots with background chatter or sounds of wind and birds.

Oh... and in case others have the same problem, there's a NEXT button to continue to the next in the series of photographs in the extreme upper-right corner.

I couldn't find it for the longest time, and had to return to the home page to click around.

Great photographs... great find.

I'm a sucker for panoramas (or is the plural also panorama?) - thanks for the link. A fine addition to your already respectable portfolio...

Excellent all-javascript scrollers on those bad boys. I don't think I've ever seen that used -- most everyone wheels out some bad applet.

Wow, totally beautiful. I especially love the one for Nagasaki, with the single burning-orange streetlight visible on the hill above the city... and also the way you can see the ghostly figures of other people in the near-camera darkness on a few of them.
