As the atmosphere itself is mostly invisible I tried to show something that affects the atmosphere and thus the air we all breathe. The panorama shows a source of air pollution (motor cars), alternatives to individual transportation by motor cars (a bike and a tram) and the surveillance station itself. The colorfull painted container is the air pollution surveillance station DEHE041.
There are three air pollution surveillance stations in the urban area of Frankfurt/M. Two of the stations measure the background load of the air pollution. The third station which is featured in this panorama measures traffic related pollution. The station went in service on March 01, 1993.
The shooting was done with a virtual tripod. The virtual tripod is also called a Philopod
With a fisheye attached to my camera, four pictures easily cover 360°. But due to several nearby objects I took eight shots for some more overlap. As I wanted to show different vehicles, I even took some more shots and afterwards I selected the shots with the most interesting combination of different vehicles.
I took two additional pictures for the zenith and nadir.
