While shooting the Golden Gate from the Sausalito side, my girlfriend had the brilliant idea for us to step in the picture and produce a couple selfie. I am not too keen to be in front of the camera but the setup was perfect for the camera shy. So we did step in to take the picture under an almost full moon. And it makes for a fun travel photo.

Equipment:Canon DSLR 5D Mk II, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens, RAW conversion using Adobe Lightroom 4.1

In stereographic projections, several panoramic images are projected onto a flat, square or rectangular image.

New York-based photographer Randy Scott Slavin uses a computer program to stitch together as many as one hundred photos of the same scene to create the bizarre images.  

Mr. Slavin is inspired by artist M. C. Escher who was famous for his optical illusions.
