Pigeons have enormous fields of vision – they can see 340-degrees around without moving, thanks to their side-mounted eyes. The peripheral vision of each eye is so great that the two visual fields overlap, giving the pigeon a binocular field of 24-degrees when it looks straight ahead. Trafalgar square celebrates the famous naval victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. More recently it has been host to a battle of a different nature: Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone versus the pigeons. Ken has employed a mob of hawks to circle the square and scare away the pigeons. In fact, in 2004 he spent 105,000 GBP on a hawk to chase them from the Square and a further 30,000 GBP was spent in undertaking a scientific study to make sure that the pigeons were not being harmed. This panorama was taken in August 2005 – they don’t yet seem to have got the message that they’re not welcome!

- 360In addition to panoramic stills photography, I also create interactive 360 virtual tours. These 360s enable the viewer to step inside an image, viewing a full 360° around the scene. You can find a a small selection of my favourite interactive 360 virtual tours below, just click the thumbnails. I have captured a wide variety of interactive panoramas over the years – from city skylines to desert landscapes, from festivals to fashion, from architecture to alternative energy. Make sure you use the ‘FULLSCREEN’ button to see the 360 virtual tours with maximum impact. Please visit my virtual tour company to see more (corporate) examples.
