We typically think of indoor panoramas for "architectural" shots.
The picture is formal and a lot of equpment is dragged into the
empty building to make it.
But these panoramas can be shot with no equipment and
In fact, they can be shot at the next party in your home.

Here is an ordinary snapshot of a living room in a fairly ordinary

The interior space of a computer-syntheized panorama is not reality.
It is a very special space,
akin to what you might imagine with your eyes closed.
Turn your head, move your eyes, and take in the

perceived space of the mind,
not the simple sensation of the eye.
