Big Zombie 360 degree panorama in front of Phil, the 50' inflatable zombie in the downtown Minneapolis Quarantine Zone of the 2013 8th annual Zombie Pub Crawl.

Collapsed I-35W bridge from 3,000 ft. 360 degree aerial panorama over the collapsed I-35W bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, MN.

This was shot the morning after the collapse when there was a TFR (temporary flight restriction) over the bridge, and I had to fly significantly higher than I normally shoot, so you won't be able to see much detail in the bridge. I may be able to do more at a decent altitude when the TFR is lifted.

Holidazzle 2012 360 degree panorama during the 2012 Holidazzle Parade at Nicollet Ave. and 9th St. in downtown Minneapolis. It is difficult getting a good picture during the parade. They turn all the street lights off, so it's really dark and hard to get a good crowd shot, plus the floats never stop. I'm starting to think the only way I can get a good shot of a float is to put a doll in a stroller, roll it out in the middle of the street, and scream "My baby! MY BABY!!"

Minneapolis Holidazzle Parade 2010 360 degree panorama during the 2010 Holidazzle Parade at Nicollet Ave. and 8th St. in downtown Minneapolis. The crowd is usually as interesting as the floats, so I really wish they'd keave the street lights on for at least one parade. Better yet, for just one night leave all the downtown building lights on too, get a sponsor like Nikon and call it the "Nikon Light Up The Night Holidazzle Parade." I bet it would be the most popular night for Holidazzle!

Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery 360 degree panorama at the gates to the Minneapolis Pioneer and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery. Established in 1853, it is the oldest cemetery in Minneapolis. About 2,000 people are buried here, including early African-American residents, 200 veterans, and several thousand immigrants, along with infamous Harry Hayward, the first documented American serial killer. This was my submission for the World Wide Panorama Fall Equinox 2013 event Mortality. I wanted to go inside the cemetery, but procrastinator that I am, I arrived too late, on the last day of shooting, and couldn't get in. I decided to shoot anyway - a padlocked gate at an endangered historical cemetery still seems like a good fit for Mortality, plus it makes me think about all the people who have warned me that I will be late for my own funeral.
