Inagi View

November 22nd, 2003

The night seemed clear, so I went up to the 10th floor to take some time-exposure shots of the city (from my floor, much of the city is obscured by local hills). They turned out pretty well, and I was able to fairly successfully stitch together some shots to make a nice panorama of Tokyo, spreading from Fuchu, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya, and down to Futagoyama, as seen from West Tokyo (the Tama area). Below is a much-reduced version, a thumbnail you could say (450 pixels wide). The full-size photo was more than 6000 pixels across, so I cut it down to about 3000 pixels wide (still more than 3 times the width of the average screen). If you click on the small image below, the 3000-pixel version will be displayed in its own window. The file is 376 KB.

Here’s a shot of downtown Shinjuku, first its size in the 3000-pixel version, then in the 6000-pixel version. You can clearly make out the twi-tower Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building–not bad for a shot taken 20 km distant with a digital camera with only a 3x zoom.
