I'm breaking my one photo a day rule and going with a second pic of the day. The exception is due to this exceptional panorama and crowd of 200,000 to 250,000 folks in Berlin who showed up to get a glimpse of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. I can't get my mind around this crowd. Must have been amazing to have actually been there in person. It looks so crazy! Crazy amazing, that is. And the guy isn't even president at this point. Yet. Unbelievable, right? Anywho, kudos to the crowd and photographer Michael Stoß for capturing the energy and essence of this incredible event. Click here for the full, 360-degree effect. Great shot! And the screenshot's not too shabby, either.

Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - stevegarfield - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!

  1. Hi,

    First of all, the photo is a screenshot from the Panorama. I took it to help share the amazing panorama of the crowd.

    Sitting here in the US, it's wonderful to finally see someone visiting Europe that we can be proud of.

    Barack Obama will be able to help heals the wounds created by President Bush. Looking forward to November.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Glad you took that screenshot and tagged it appropriately on Flickr because it's unlikely that I would have seen or found that breathtaking 360 panorama image by Michael Stoß.

    Very cool!
