Coolest Beer Can Ever?

You decide… I know it’s one of the best stouts that I’ve ever consumed.  Previously only available on tap, Fort George added it to its canning line in the last couple of weeks.


Five spiders are listed around the can.  Unfortunately and inexplicably, Charlotte A. Cavatica escapes mention.  Probably a copyright thing.

Oh, Just Click On It!


The image is a result of the (new) A77’s “sweep panorama” mode, Adobe’s Lightroom 3 post-processing and minor work in Photoshop CS4. 

Yeah, I’m still having fun with the new gear.

Shot at 16mm and 1/200 second, but past that, I can’t tell you a lot… the camera’s mode took over.  I think there were between 15 and 20 frames involved in the stitching, but I didn’t really try to count.  I was too busy panning with my finger on the shutter button.

The hard part (the panorama stitching) was accomplished in-camera in less than a second after the series was shot (on a Class-10 card… be prepared to wait with something slower), and the balance of the post-work was done in a couple of minutes in LR3 and CS4.
