With klik's photographic equipment and abilities, there is absolutely no need for me to take photos during our vacations. Most of the time, my contribution is limited to holding the polaroid filter or the lens cap while she takes the pictures.
But I do have a photocamera in my purse: the compact camera, which has a really cool panorama setting. Using that, you can take three photos (and you get guides as to how to move the camera and how far) and the camera stitches those three together into a single mega-picture. Since I have that camera, making the panorama's is my job. Sometimes, the stitches are very visible and the photo fails, but often it works out quite nicely. Five of the panoramas I made turned out allright!

Lower ring of the Colosseum. The wooden floor is gone, so you can see the catacombs beneath it.

Upper ring of the Colosseum. This really shows just how big the thing it. Just left of the middle you can see the space where they re-created the wooden floor, but getting there was not possible for us mere mortals.

In front of St. Peter's chathedral, Vatican City. You can see the line of people trying to get it -- the tour guides warned us that it would take two hours and that we could join their group and skip the lines, which we didn't do. Twenty minutes later, we were inside...

View of the Piazza del Popolo from the park up the hill.

View from the city from Villa Borghese, looking south.
