The Irving Saint John Refinery

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

This is a panorama of Irving Oil’s Saint John Refinery located in Saint John, New Brunswick.  This is Canada’s largest oil refinery according to Irving.  The refinery is truly massive and took 6 images to capture this image.

The six images were shot hand-held and were stitched together in photoshop using automatic adjustments.  The resulting panorama was converted to grayscale in Lightroom and slight toning adjustments were made for contrast.

The image above is shown using Microsoft’s Seadragon technology. Scroll and pan inside the image to reveal more detail. You can see my images here

S.S. Maheno

The wreck of the S.S. Maheno on Fraser Island, Australia.

The Maheno has a long history, stretching back to 1905 when it was built in Scotland to be used as a luxury liner for travel between Australia and New Zealand.  It served in the first world war as a hospital ship, and then was converted back to a luxury liner after the war.  In 1935 it was declared outdated and was being towed to Japan for scrap.  Along the way it encountered a cyclone and washed ashore where it remains to this day.

Red Plates

Taken in Amsterdam.  I think this was some form of art or something.  Basically these are red plastic plates hanging on strings over the entrance to a street.  It was very odd, but I liked the way it was illuminated at night.

Amsterdam Bike Rack

Another shot of bicycles in Amsterdam.  This scene was fairly common in the city, so I figured I’d capture it.  The bike racks are always overflowing with bikes, it’s amazing that anyone can find theirs in the mess.
