I somehow managed to convince my sisters that Gloucester was better than the Cape, thus we found ourselves eating lunch along the water front, visiting the Fudgery, and seeing Hammond Castle on a perfect Saturday. Below is two panoramic shots from the trip.
Click on the photo to zoom. To shoot panoramic, just keep a steady hand and a natural pivot. Each photo is about 4 shots combined (post processing), with lots of ‘overlap’ within each shot.
Surprised that there’s a castle just 1 hour outside of Boston? In the 1920s, Hammond Castle was built by inventor John Hammond to house and satisfy his renaissance collection. Hammond, with over 400 patents, was a pioneer for the remote control, a device greatly utilized during the war. As an inventor, the man might have molded the future, but surely desired to live in the past.
