Amazing detail - and they've even taken the trouble to go through it, bit by bit, and put a smudge over an identifiable face!

hi Will

Fantastic photography. The detail is brilliant.

I have a 40x optical zoom on my camcorder but I have hell of a job keeping it steady even with a tripod.

I wonder what the equipment costs ?? I have never seen anything like this.

Thanks

MikeL2

"...a smudge over an identifiable face!"

Perhaps some, but a guy fishing from a dock, under an umbrella, it clearly seen.

And technology like this was no doubt used to monitor bin Laden....they say some satellites can read the rank of a soldier from his shoulder markings.

Totally amazing.

Years ago, I landed in Seville, meaning to use it as a base to explore that part of Spain. I never got out of the city- too much to see there.

Some sites are there that one normally doesn't think about, such as the Archive of the Indies (Archivo general de Indias) which houses original papers from the conquistadores to the 19th century- one of the greatest collections of historical material in the world. One of the assistants showed me the records of my home town, Santa Fe, and that part of the Southwest from the beginning of the 16th c. to the end of Spanish rule in the American Southwest. The building itself is noteworthy, 16th C. with a few modifications up through the 18th C.

Q, I lived in Sevilla for six months in 1961-62 while my father did reseach for his first book, Felipe de Neve, First Governor of California, in the Archive of the Indies. My older sister loved it so much there that she stayed to do a year of college at the University of Sevilla...and her daughter did the same, many years later.

Sevilla is a magnificent city. Even though I was only 7, the photo brings back many memories. I wish there were a map overlay so I could find my address (I have located a Google street view, but would like to see it from a bit further back), but that's a tiny quibble with this amazing photo.

I zoomed in on a few cars and found their license plates had been blurred out.

There certainly are some very cool bridge designs.

There is also some interesting graffiti and piles of trash.

My attempt to find nude sunbathers on rooftops has been unsuccessful so far.

Far to the left, there is a pinkish brick building with a billboard attached to one wall. It is actually an advertisement for SuperInventos.com, the same company whose name is given in the upper right of the screen. If you click on the billboard, it takes you to their website.

I suspect it is the only part of the panorama that was faked—sort of an "Easter egg."

I'd love to give you coordinates, but I don't see any way to do that.

Sevilla was my first experience of mainland Spain - about ten or twelve years ago. I remember stepping off the plane and being hit by a wall of heat - at the end of October! Amazed to find that the taxi driver actually understood my Spanish and - even more amazing - that I could understand (most) of his! A wonderful city which changes from hour to hour and never fails to fascinate.

Regards

Towering over the city can be seen the old minaret of the Moorish mosque. A Spanish addition at the top (wedding cake) detracts from its appearance, but it still is a grand structure. The mosque was largely demolished and changed when it was converted to a church.
I wanted to climb the ramp to the top, but never did.

Great ap! A wonderful city with beautiful bridges across the Guadalquivir. I was looking for La Carbonaria, the famous flamenco tavern, in these views. Also, the Cathedral with its tower doesn't seem to appear? Someday I'll go back.

Well, Q, guess I'll have to look again, then. Yep, climbed the ramp to the top, from which the sainted virgins cast themselves down to their deaths rather than submit to the Moors.

Best flamenco I heard in Seville was during siesta time one day as I wandered though back alleys. Emerging from a closed and shuttered bar was this wonderful, live, haunting music...

Some of the bars have good guitarrists, in Sevilla and Madrid. Have to ask around, as they often are not a constant attraction.

I have had Los Gallos recommended to me for flamenco. La Carbonaria and the new museum of flamenco (I would like to visit it if I ever went back).

Digression- listen to flamenco 24 hours a day- too, too much!
