Comparing images from Opernplatz, Frankfurt am Main (2004 and 2014)

The upcoming World Wide Panorama (WWP) event is entitled ‘decade’.

In the time frame of a decade even a city can change it’s appearance. So I searched for panoramic images which I shot in 2004 and which were shot at a place which changed over the last ten years. The best example was a image of the Opernplatz, which I took back in 2004 as a cylindrical panorama. And the view of the Opernplatz (which translates to ‘the square of the opera’) indeed changed a lot in the last ten years.

So I went back and stood at the same spot where I stood a decade ago. First I took a spherical panorama with my double monopod construction. Afterwards I did a remake of the original cylindrical panorama. The following image shows the two cylindrical panoramas in a single composite.

This panorama has been shot with a 6m high pole.

This spherical panorama was taken while standing inside the rotunda of Munich's museum "Pinakothek der Moderne".

We participated in the WWP611 event (family). Each of us shot a panorama showing 14 PanoTwins in a single panorama. Both panoramas were shot simultaneously. We also shot a "Making of" timelapse video you can see here:
