I was amazed by those hilariously panoramic photos. I could never get those to come out right.
Use a camera stand. You can get little ones (about four or five inches tall) with bendy from camera shops and they're really handy. Definitely one of the best purchases I've made.
Once you've got your photos get yourself a copy of autostitch. It's a free download. You just tell it where your images are and it automatically straps them all together for you in a minute or two.
Can Mr Floppity shrink, or are those helluva big wine barrels?
They're very big barrels. The stuff in there sells for about £20 a bottle and is the only Italian wine I've ever tasted that has a bit of weight to it. I can't remember how many gallons were in those barrels, but I do remember that that particular wine, Amarone, has to sit in there for three years. Tasty stuff, but I couldn't justify the price when you can get similar things in the UK.
