Ordinarily, the adage would have us believe that ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’… in this case the BBC’s Royal Wedding picture is worth several thousand stories!
The BBC say, “This high-definition, 1.15-gigapixel picture, is a composite of 189 images. The full picture measures 81,471 pixels by 14,154 pixels. The field of view covers 200 degrees.”
That’s some image, and a nice memento of the day.., if you can find yourself..!
It’s another example of how technology is changing what is possible in terms of storytelling as well as capturing and sharing those stories. Millions of people will have a version of this event, what this image does is put several thousand all together for all to see.
