These two 8 x 10 photographs (duos 20 and 21) were meant to be viewed as a panorama. Like Notman, I set my camera in the middle of the street, but I had to have the Roddick Gates closed behind me so I could concentrate on taking pictures instead of redirecting traffic. I can tell that Notman took the right view (VIEW-3009) first and then the left (VIEW-3008) - not only is the light 25-35 minutes "later" in the left view, but the frame is not quite straight. Likely the camera was set on the tripod for the first shot and then swung to the left. I respected the same time lag when I took my photographs.
