Giant Pictures

Pictures can be fun but GIANT pictures are always better.  Here are a couple of giant pictures that I thought I’d share.

First, this is a 100 meter long art piece entitled We’re All Gonna Die.  Nice happy title don’t you think.  Maybe it becomes more artsy if you bring death in somehow.  There are 178 people in the picture. All people were shot from the same spot on Warschauer Strasse in Berlin in the summer 2007.  Almost none of the people knew their photos were being taken.  You can checkout the whole picture in a fun slider format at the artists website

Second, this is a little less artsy but perhaps a little more interesting for the common man.  This is a nearly 1,500 megapixel image from inaguration day.  For those of you not so photo/tech savy, that is REALLY big.  It seems pretty normal at first but you can zoom in for a closeup and see individual faces in the crowd.  Look for your favorite celebrity, politician or maybe even Waldo!

Just as a sample, the most obvious zooming target…
