Taipei Pillow Fight, 2010 Panorama | 臺北街頭枕頭大戰 |

In Fun, Taiwan on January 2, 2010 at 9:13 pm

A massive pillow fight at Taipei’s Chiang Kai Shek Memorial organized on Facebook, where it was termed 臺北街頭枕頭大戰 (loosely translated: ‘Taipei Street Corner Pillow Fight Battle Royale’.) Click the image above to experience the interactive panorama of the mêlée.

The event barely ran 15 minutes before it was broken up by some flustered security guards – still, quite a bizarre and wonderful scene while it lasted. Turnout was tiny compared to similar events elsewhere. This was probably one of the trickier panoramas I’ve pulled off, but it pales technically compared to this NYC pillow fight pano. I shot the pano with 4 images using the D3 and a Sigma 8mm on a tripod post that I held above my head, shooting with an intervalometer. Sure, it looked goofy – but it worked! The ambient sound was recorded separately on a Zoom H4n.

If you’re in Taipei and missed the fun, a second round might come about on April 4, 2010 — Worldwide Pillow Fight Day.
