William Herman Rau (1855-1920), “Corridoio della Biblioteca Vaticana, Roma”. Stereofotografia. Numero di catalogo: 1999.

The other day I was clicking through Wikipedia and I came across this interesting stereogram. Check out these other stereocards.



Holy See an Armillary Sphere?

Screen grab from the website of the Vatican showing an Armillary Sphere in the background

Vatican @ 3200X2400
|| 6/25/2004 || 4:00 pm || Comments Off on Vatican @ 3200X2400 || ||

I think I might rerender this graphic and have the Vatican a little more centered and have the reflection centered in the square. There is something eerie about the way the it looks. I like it.

The satellite image is from Space Imaging and was created prior to learning the legality of making derivative maps using their copyrighted imagery, however I am keeping it on-line for educational purposes only.
