I had the privilege last month to photograph the most amazing antique store I have ever seen; Greenwich Living Antiques and Design Centre http://greenwichlivingantique.com. In addition to still photographs, I took 63 panoramas to form a 360 degree, Google virtual tour, that enables potential customers the ability to "walk through" the store from their smartphone from anywhere in the world. Thanks to my Google digital marketing agency Instant360.com, I was assigned to this project, which kept me busy photographing for an entire day.
According to their website, Greenwich Living Antiques and Design Centre has provided furnishings to Tommy Hilfiger, Regis Philbin, Judge Judy, Katherine Zeta Jones, Anne Hathaway, and Beyoncé, and their furniture offerings include extensive pieces of Maison Jansen, Ralph Lauren, and other high-end decor, as well as Hollywood Regency, Louis XV and XVI, Russian Neoclassical and Formal French, English and Continental merchandise.
You can take the virtual tour starting here https://goo.gl/maps/5b9BXpW9xGF2 or visit in person at 481 Canal St., Stamford, CT. I suggest you allow an hour or two to see it all.

One of my favorite days of the year, is the day when Major League pitchers and catchers report to spring training.
Today is that day, for my favorite team, the Boston Red Sox https://www.mlb.com/redsox.
My favorite local team is the Hartford Yard Goats https://www.milb.com/hartford , which plays in the Eastern League. They are the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.
In 2017, I was asked to create 360 degree panorama photos of the the brand new Dunkin' Donuts Park. A view that I took behind home plate and from the third base line are below. Dunkin' Donuts Park is one of the most beautiful minor league parks, and has one of the highest attendance. The Goats drew 405,403 fans in their 2018 season, making them the first minor league team in Connecticut to draw more than 400,000 in a season.
I am looking forward to opening day, when all 30 Major league baseball teams will play on March 28, the earliest opening day in history, excluding international openers. The Red Sox home opener is April 9th. The Yard Goats home opener is April 11th.
Life is pretty dull in February without football or baseball. I'm ready for spring. Play ball!
