Postcard #10 came with a lovely sheep stamp from Finland. Stamps are the main reason I started postcrossing and it has a been a lot of fun seeing all the different stamps of the world. I know this is only the tenth card but I seen a lot more because I have already received my 60th card and I'm just delaying the posts to the blog as well as a little behind in scanning them.

My tenth Postcrossing postcard is a Pippi Longstocking card from Finland; This card was a refreshing change from the usual travel cards I get.

Another interesting stamp from Germany that came along with postcard #9; This looks like a metered stamp with the amount printed onto the stamp.

Circus Cake Photosynth

This is my second photosynth and it's a cake Amy made for a birthday; I took 175 photos all around the cake to see what kind of synth I would get. I think it turned out ok and it was a nice experiment. press thhe CTRL key when viewing the synth to see the 3D points; this is probably the coolest part of this synth.

I also tried 2 more versions of the same cake and they can be viewed at my Synth profile page.

My First Photosynth: View from Balcony

This is my first Photosynth of the view from the balcony of the Hilton Prince Kuhio in Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii. This is the mountain/golf view; we weren't cool enough for the ocean view but that didn't really matter since we were in Hawaii to go places and not hangout in our room.

The photosynth needs a plugin so I don't know how this will display on my blog if you do not have it; sorry about that but I wanted to give this a try. Stay tuned for a synth shot specifically to be a synth; Amy has a new cake and I'm going to shoot it from all angles.
