Andrei Zmievski Wigglegram
(version #1)
at the Fushimi Inari Shrine, Kyoto Japan

An old friend from my days at Yahoo! swung by Kyoto the other day, and we made a quick walking tour of a few sightseeing spots.

I first met Andrei Zmievski at an Open Source Conference circa 2002, and we worked together a bit on things related to PHP's regular-expression support (of which a chapter of my book on regular expressions is dedicated). As an expert in PHP, he later joined Yahoo! a couple of years later when Yahoo! made heavier use of PHP.

Selfie Stick

These selfie stick (my word) things seem to have suddenly exploded in popularity. I've seen them around for years, but on this few-hour outing I saw more than in my entire life up to that point.

Inari shrines have a lot of fox statues; the shot above was taken almost next to where this fox shot was taken, though to much different effect. 🙂

Here's another version of the wigglegram given at the top of this post. It's derived from the same original photos that the one above was derived from. As described in The Art and Science (and Complex Frustrations) of Creating my Wigglegrams, once you have the master shots in camera, there are still all kinds of different results you can get depending on how you crop the individual frames.

The version above has the apparent movement rotate about Andrei; the version below has it rotate about the far background...

I prefer the one that has Andrei as the focal point.

Agree with Rick, the other one feels pan-y. Andrei for focal point!
