The link at the bottom of this post leads to a photo that was taken using a panoramic image capturing device called

Gigapan created by the Carnegie-Mellon University, using a Canon g10 camera.

I took this text and the link right from an Email I got from my friend Amee. Where she got it, I don't know.

According to the Email: The photographer had to click 220 snaps from the camera to get this complete view of the Obama inaugural address. It took a Macbook Pro computer around seven hours to process the complete image whose final size is over 2GB.

I looked at it. It's astonishing.

Click on the link below to see the image. Zoom in, and you can clearly see each individual face in the scene in detail up to the lake half way through the National Mall.

You will first notice Justice Clarence Thomas sleeping behind President Obama, but then jump around the crowd a bit. You're gonna love this.

We can now safely assume that the government has plenty of pictures of us in a DATA base somewhere, ready to use anything we do against us at any time.
Look at the clear resolution on those faces way in the back. We should be concerned.

11:31 - did you zoom in? I saw faces very clearly all throughout...go to the positive sign and slide the bar toward it...write back when you're successful. 6:22 has every right to be paranoid! (I think I saw Michael Phelps doing bong hits way in the back!)

hey...11:31, you have to click on the link at the bottom of the article, let it load and then you can see clear face shots as far back as the middle lake.

I think the top picture is a stock photo for filler.
