#1: Kaidan 360 OneVR Panoramic shot from road intersection

(visited by Shawn Fleming)

20-Mar-2007 -- It was the first day of spring and I was in Minneapolis taking my daughters dog to the University of Minnesota Veterinary Clinic for an appointment. I had some spare time and it was time for a couple of confluences.

This was an easy confluence to locate. I was able to park in front of the confluence house at 1945 Polaris Place. I was able to get as close as 19 meters against the fence. I took pictures from the middle of the road including a panoramic shot. The trailer previous visitors had noted looked like it hadn’t moved in quite some time.

Picture #1 is a panoramic shot taken with a Kaidan 360 OneVR lens. It’s a conical lens that captures a circular image and then using software, unwraps the image to make a panoramic shot or a QuickTime movie from the raw image. Picture #2 looks north. Picture #3 looks east. Picture #4 looks south. Picture #5 shows my GPS location.

Onward to 45N 94W!

Take Exit 55 off of I-694. Go west on SR 5/SR 212/34th St. N for 1.3 miles until the road comes to a T. Turn right onto SR 120/Geneva Ave. N, and go 0.1 miles. Take the next left, Holloway Ave., and go 0.73 miles to the intersection with Lakewood Dr. to the south and Polaris Place to the north. You may now go 234 feet north on Polaris Place, and then 219 feet west to the confluence, or 117 feet further west on Holloway Ave., and then 223 feet north to the confluence.
