What do you get when you take 1,000 photos and use them as 10,000 individual tiles to make up another Photo? A really cool looking Photomosaic.
These were a lot of fun to make, and I suppose part of the reason I am after 1,000 photos of Bendigo and surrounds for Bendigo Scenic. I guess when its done it will be called Bendigo Scenic 1000.
All the flower photos from before and taken this past weekend help out quite a bit with this, as the software which generates these mosaics needs not struggle to find a certain colour.
At first they may look a bit strange, but when you look closer you can see that each is comprised of 10,000 separate square tiles which are actually each a photo in and of themselves.
I have provided a zoomed in image after the first 5 mosaics which shows what the actual sized print of these mosaics would look like were they to be printed to their actual size of 11 feet x 6.25 feet.
The near term benefit is that finally it is possible to create Doona covers at Red Bubble with these images, as a Doona Cover requires images which are at least 13,000 pixels on one side. These fit that bill.
Problem is I’ve cheated a bit by using the Melbourne photos that I have, and at this point I am still short 240 Photos on my way to 1000 for Bendigo. So this is a bit of a test to see what these Photomosaics would look like. Thus far pretty happy with the results of this testing.
Applications? Might be pretty neat to have a business photo, staff photo, etc. etc. which is then converted into a Photomosaic with all Bendigo photos comprising the mosaic tiles. Certainly would be a talking point at reception for many years to come.
Anyway, I’ll keep experimenting with this to see if I can’t get them looking even better. For now you can revisit these by checking out the Gallery called Photomosaics.
Song to go along with this one?
Well wonder of all wonders, in researching this next singer, it turns out he was born in the same city as I, Kingston, Ontario, but just 97 days later.
I always thought he was from Vancouver, but I suppose that was just the place he made it with his music. I wonder if he was born at the Hotel Dieu Hospital as well? Or maybe KGH (Kingston General). Anyway from reading his Wiki, seems he earns a crust from Photography when not singing. Isn’t that strange!
Again, you know this fellow, but since he has all his music locked down and not available to 3rd party site sharing on both the Tube and Vevo, here is a random duet I stumbled across which looked like it was a lot of fun. Enjoy!
