Amazing Photograph!

A friend just sent me this photograph. This is absolutely the BEST in “high definition” ... Zoom in (double-click an area) ... and watch it focus. Then zoom some more ... and wait for it to focus. Or, you can use the focusing tool on the upper left side of the screen to zoom in and out, and scan across the photo with the directional arrows at the top left of the page. Or, just grab it somewhere on the photo and move your mouse across the page.

What a surveillance tool this is!

This picture was taken with a robotic camera and weighs in at 1,474 megapixel. (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera). It was a Canon that pulled together over 200 individual shots. Each zoom in takes a second to focus ... and then you can see some amazing reactions. You can even read the Everest & Jennings logo on Dick Cheney's wheelchair!

I'll give you bonus points if you find Yo-Yo Ma taking a picture with his iPhone.

I found Yo Yo Ma in the photo. At first I thought he was farther down but then I realized he was farther up! This day was really cool and very historical. Thank you for coming to my school today. I learned a lot. It made me think about people who have disabilities differently.
