Thank you for the link. Great images there. Being on an organised tour we were at the mercy of the tour operators itinerary and they can only show you so much in the short time we were there. Your images really bring home what a fascinating and interesting place Budapest is and how it deserves a great deal more time to explore.

Thanks again.

Overlooking the Mekong River in Chau Doc, Vietnam, 2000 early in the morning. Scan of 4 Fujichrome Sensia 100 35mm slides.

Recently we spent a couple of weeks in Hiroshima (been there quite a few times since 1985) and in the middle of that time we went to Kure for a couple of days. I have stopped there for just a few minutes several times while riding a ferry for 3 hours going to Hiroshima, but I have never stopped to spend time there. It is a big seaport with shipbuilding yards, Japanese Navy ships and submarines, and a couple of cool museums (Yamato Battleship Museum and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Forces Museum). The Yamato Battleship (largest battleship ever built) was built at the Kure shipyards. It was sunk south of Kyushu in 1945 not long before the end of WWII. Anyway, here is a panorama I made at a place overlooking the Kure shipyards. Notice on the right they are building a big amphibious assault ship (I think that is what it is). I had to point the camera down a bit to make the 3-frame panorama so there is a bit of a curve.

If you are interested you can see lots of Japan Navy submarines and ships in the album below. There is a spot you can get pretty close to them.

And in the Hiroshima album (2017 and 2019) there are shots of many of the same ships from the ferry and a different angle.

I won't be able to go into specifics and favourites, Henry, but these are brilliant albums and photos. :)

Thank you for sharing,

Thank you for taking a look, Yildiz. The Setonaikai (Seto Inland Sea) is a great place that I have spent a lot of time around for the last 20 years. It is the sea between Honshu and Shikoku and is full of small islands. There are also multiple shipbuilding places. Some here may recall that a few years ago I posted some photos of a shipbuilding place on the island of Oshima. I searched and found that 2014 thread:

Oshima in the Seto Inland Sea

Nice pano, Barry. Beautiful location and photo. How many frames did you stitch?

Used the auto pana function in camera and cropped about 60% off was feeling lazy that day, slight tweak in contrast :D

I saw these articles today. I think the ship I saw and photographed at the shipyards was probably this helicopter destroyer being converted into an aircraft carrier. First one for Japan since WWII.

Here is a new panorama I made this week in Utah outside Santa Clara. 5 raw shots with my Panasonic TX1 (ZS100/TZ100) stitched with Photoshop CC. This is a thumbnail:

I have not tried those 360 degree websites. In 2002 I did make this 360 degree panorama using my Minolta D7i though. It is 21 vertical photos stitched together. I should probably redo it using current panorama software because it would probably be a bit better.
