The Balloon Guy
During Ben's visit with the Easter Bunny he got some balloon animals from 'the balloon guy'. (The man in black) He also got his face painted up like a bunny by a 'face artist'. Ben had a great time with Grandpa looking for eggs.

This picture was taken on April 3rd, 2004 with a Nikon 995 Coolpix camera sporting an FC-E8 fish eye lens, hand held. Images were shot in manual mode at f3.6 for 1/250 second, ISO 100. A total of six images were taken, four around, one up and one down. Chromatic aboration was corrected using Adobe Photoshop by scaling the red and blue channels to 99.9%. The images were then sharpend with an unsharp mask filter and color corrected a bit. They were then 'defished' using DeFish software created by Ken Turkowski. Back in Photoshop I manually stitched the four images together. Then using Cubic Converter I converted the assembled panorama in to a cubic format and exported the top and bottom to be finalized once again in Photoshop. I then re-import the top and bottom into Cubic Converter to assemble the final QuickTime VR. Then into QuickTime Pro to embed copyright and other information about the file.
