1,474-Megapixel Picture of Obama's Inauguration

Post by John 5 » Fri Jan 23, 2009 7:27 pm

If your computer has a very old processor, or if you are still on dial-up, it might not be a good idea to follow the link.

Surfers on reasonably modern computers & connection, zoom in and out and pan to your heart's content. Amazing stuff. Zooming in all the way to the people sitting in the deep, far distance just blew my mind.

This is what 1,474 Mega-pixels look like.

Is that Jimmy Carter next to Barbara Bush? Could be, cause at least 2 other former presidents are on that row. But my favorite so far, Check out Dick Cheney on a wheelchair holding a walking stick.

Yep. That's President Carter in the brown flat cap with sunglasses right next to Barbara Bush. I love the older President Bush's hat!

That sure is the peanut farmer from Plains. Now look directly above Carter. What the hell is that? Looks like two bodies and three heads.

Is that Cheney, or Major Toht, the creepy guy from Raiders of the Lost Ark?

I guess they didn't stitch their images together very well in that spot.

A look into the platform directly opposite from where this composite was taken reveals quite the arsenal of photographic equipment. It's amazing how history can be documented these days. Just count the number of insanely expensive pro lenses over there - wonder if they missed a spot?!

Amazing picture, but the President's eyes were closed.

Need to take it again. Think we can get them all back into the same position?

Someone should have given Michelle Obama a lap blanket -- she looks a bit on the chilly side.

If I were a former POTUS, I'd be pissed at a bunch of "sundry folks" getting better seats than I. Seriously, who's that geek in front of the Carters?
