Nice little Google Assistant video of TBEX Stockholm (kudos to Food Tours Stockholm, +Shane Dallas, +Gianni Bianchini and Eric Desmeules of for photo opps). Also includes images of Falun and Sundborn in Dalarna.

I love these automagic creations. Totally hands-off productions.

Entering the upper chapel of Paris Sainte-Chapelle takes my breath away, every time with the same effect, especially since my last visit was 30 years ago.

ICM = Intentional Camera Movement. +Sandra Nesbit and +Ugo Cei introduce a concept new to me.

What about Unintentional Camera Movement? Perhaps some of those images could become composite elements I have a lot of them. <grin>
Someone told me I was annoying them, but what happened next changed everything!

Hello +Lanora Mueller . New to ICM? It's a wonderful world of its own, Lenora. I learned about ICM through +Alex Lapidus mentorship, a year or so changed my photo output utterly. While not for everyone, it's a joy for those of us who love the abstract and impressionistic. And yes, I've used some ICM as an element in a composite. Thanks for the share and the interest!
