Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Tokyo Turkish Mosque


Happy Eid, my Muslim brothers and sisters — Happy Eid 1432H to you all.

Today, Muslim all around the world are celebrating Eid ul-Fitr — one of the biggest day in Islamic Calendar.

In times like this, I really miss my mom’s cooks :D…

Side Story:

This photo was stitched from three photos. They were taken using iPhone 3G, and stitched (automatically) using Microsoft Ice. MS-Ice is a very nice software, I would recommend it for easy, automatic photo-stitching software. Of course, automatic means certain limitation. Know your limits, and have fun! :D

  1. Happy Eid GM! :) Ramadan is over, right?
    Just one question: is it allowed to take photos inside a mosque? :)

    • Thanks, Helder. Yes, that’s right. Ramadhan is over :D.
      Well, I don’t see sign prohibiting taking photo and I also saw a lot of people taking photo… so, I took several myself.
      I assume it’s okay to take photo — well, not during the praying anyway :D…

  2. That’s a really nice photo from iPhone. Looks super wide :). I’ve heard about ICE, need to check it out.

    Since you take the photo with iPhone, do you lean on a chair or something? To make sure that the photos are similar, in terms of starting point/focal point? (hope this makes sense).

    • Thanks, Jenn.

      No, I didn’t lean on a chair. Well, I was sitting on the floor, and sweep the view from left to right. To make sure it works, I just sweep little by little, so that about 1/3 of the first photo (the right part) is pretty much the same with 1/3 of the second photo (the left side). Am I making sense here?

      It’s not that hard, really. Try it once, and I’m sure you can understand what I mean. This would be harder if the stitched photos consisted of 2×3 photos for example.

      I think the hardest part of shooting panorama with iPhone is that I can’t manually set the exposure. So, if the exposure level is varying (due the lighting condition), the results will not be pleasant.

      Good luck and have fun, Jenn!
