Archive for the 'Wigglegrams' Category

“Wigglegram” is my term for an interactive “photo” that you can wiggle with the mouse to get a strong sense of 3D. I introduced the concept in this article, and describe a bit on how they’re made here. Articles in this category contain at least one wigglegram.

What I’m Sure Won’t Be My Last Wigglegram from the Eisho-in Temple

I popped out early this morning to visit the Eisho-in temple (栄摂院、京都市), first seen on my blog a week ago in "A Few Views of Kyoto’s Spectacular Eisho-in Temple". It really does pack a visual punch for such a small place, and I had it completely to myself the whole time I was there.

I'll post more later, but for today, I'll end with this wigglegram:

Her new location, Camellia GARDEN, is quite picturesque, and after many missed tries to get our schedules to converge, I was able to stop by for an hour the other day to try for some photos.

We didn't have any plan for any specific photos, and didn't have much time, so I just went for some of the low-hanging fruit, to help build ideas for a real photoshoot some day.

Here's a hastily-made [...]

Fall-Foliage Wigglegram from Kyoto’s Flower Temple

My, how time flies. I took this wigglegram in 2014, which surprises me because it doesn't feel like I've been doing them nearly that long. Last year I posted another wigglegram from the same outing, in "A Couple of Autumn Wigglegrams for My Niece Jena".

I had briefly touched on the outing in "A Quick Peek at Kyoto’s Hanadera Temple", which itself has a wigglegram, so I guess I was in the mood that day.

This temple is wonderful to visit, but it's difficult to get to by public transport. I'm more likely to bicycle by, as it's near the [...]
