How to Make a Story Sphere Part 1

With +Mike Downes's assistance and guidance, I've been diving deeper into creating good Photospheres.   I'm doing this to essentially  tell and share my island-life and culture story through a different medium.  I know it would be easier to use video,  but I feel with this technology, the viewer can be immersed into the space and have fun. :)
 
Recently Google Creative and +Grumpy Sailor Creative teamed up and added some 'spice' to #photospheres .  You can now embed audio to a photosphere image, I see this as a  huge benefit for all types of story-tellers and teachers.

In this video, +Mike Downes did an awesome job taking us through the steps in creating an educational Story Sphere.

Introduction
Chief Evangelist of authentic Caribbean cuisine and culture.  My Google Plus mission is simple, I want to: educate, entertain and engage my followers.

I'm extremely easy-going and have an insatiable appetite for knowledge.  I also have a burning passion for cooking and because of it, I currently own and operate a small private catering business - Island Cuisine in Trinidad & Tobago. With the help of Google +'s premiere feature, Hangouts On Air(HOA), I'm able to spread my food knowledge and teach the rest of the world how to cook Caribbean cuisine.  

Watch my HOA show Learning How To Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier where I present cooking with a twist.  I have also embarked on a new cooking HOA, Food Stories, where there is a story behind each dish.   This is the premise of my Caribbean cooking show: Imagine me, in Trinidad, sitting in front of my computer and giving detailed cooking instructions to regular home-cooks who are thousands of miles away - definitely a novel approach in helping them create tasty Caribbean dishes. You can catch all of my LIVE, past shows and get all of the temptingly delicious recipes here: http://youtube.com/user/triniman50/live 

On November 5th, 2013,  I launched my Helpouts listings teaching individuals to cook tasty Caribbean cuisine.  Helpouts are one-on-one LIVE sessions where you invite me into your kitchen and I give you step by step instructions on cooking delicious Caribbean dishes.  Come and visit my LIVE Caribbean Cookbook Helpouts listings where I will teach you, great Caribbean cooking.
Bragging rights
Recently cooked five (5) tasty Caribbean dishes for some hungry Googlers at Google's Global Headquarters in Mountain View, California.
