“We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things… but there are times when we stop. We sit sill. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. We listen and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.” -James Carroll
Some places in the world get photographed over and over again. On 360 Cities we have a few of these places… It’s interesting to see how different photographers interpret the same place at different times, with different eyes.
Here is Trevi Fountain in Rome as seen by seven different panoramic photographers.
…And while most panoramic photos make you want to go there even more, there are some places where it’s nice to maybe avoid the tourists a little bit, and see it from your own home….

Many of you may have heard the rumors and seen the articles about News Corporation’s new iPad app called The Daily. About an hour ago in New York, Rupert Murdoch, the boss of Newscorp, and Eddy Cue of Apple, fronted a news conference where the first issue of The Daily on iPad was revealed.
Today we’re pleased to announce that 360 Cities has signed a content licensing agreement with The Daily to provide panoramic photos from 360 Cities’ collection to illustrate articles in the publication. During today’s press conference, our own Jeff Martin’s pano of Venice made a live appearance as the editor of The Daily demonstrated how the app will use 360-degree panoramas.
If you have an iPad or know someone who does, you can try it out for free for two weeks from today, they said. We’re looking forward to seeing more 360 Cities panos in The Daily. Initially we expect to see 5 – 10 panos a month appear in the app. If one of yours is chosen, you’ll hear from us! Members’ whose panos are licensed for any third-party use like this of course receive a revenue share, and in this case they’ll also get a photo credit.
As of now, the webcast of the news conference is being looped, so you still have a chance to see part of it if you feel so inclined.
