Finding Beauty in the Old Stuff

In early 2006 I went with some of my co-workers to Las Vegas for a conference. One day I went off on my own to see the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. I took the boat ride on the lake, and up to the dam. I made many photos with my point and shoot camera on that trip. Just before leaving I bought a new piece of software called Microsoft Photo Suite. It had a built in panoramic function in it. I made many images on the trip knowing that I would stitch them together as a panoramic image. This was the trip of the panoramic image. I don’t know if I have made as many since as I did on that short trip. I kept using the Microsoft program for the sporadic panorama that I would make up until a couple of years ago. I was shooting a point and shoot in auto so the pano is not perfect, but it is a nice memory of a beautiful place. If the photograph can bring back the great memory of the trip than you don’t have to have it perfect.
