Gloucester Smiles on the other side of the Camera

MFS NCSometimes Gloucester Smiles ends up on the other side of the camera.  A wonderful couple from Kings Mountain North Carolina sent me a photo they took of me at the Breakwater.  One of the most enjoyable part of The Gloucester Smiles series is the wonderful and open people I get to meet, from Gloucester and from other parts of the country/world.

Thank you to all that have participated in the series.

Creating a 360° Image for Google Earth

These two gentlemen were creating a 360° Image for Google Earth of Gloucester’s Fisherman’s Memorial.   Photos were taken of the memorial every 4 inches.  I estimated that it took them approximately 1 1/2 hours to complete the task.  They are sub contractors for Google Earth, and the images they took may appear in about a month on Google Earth.



The above images were at about 5:30 PM the one below was taken an hour later on my way back from my walk.


Below are captures from the current Google Earth images of  the Fisherman’s Memorial
