    As I mentioned in one of my Where am I threads, for the 50th aniversery, Disneyland has had a series of photomosaic images made and scattered them around the parks. Most of them are about 4'x8' (1.5m x 2.5m) and consist of about 7000 small images. I was particlarly impressed with this one which is HUGE, I am 6'3" (1.9m). We had to take a picture of it before we saw Steamboat Willy, it is a double Photomosaic, the large life size headshots, which form the pixels of Willy, are themselves photomosaics of much smaller black and white images. All of the small images are pictures taken around Disneyland over the last 50yrs.

    here is a pic of one of the large pixels.

    So that's what they do with all those photos they take as you enter the park that nobody buys! :biggrin:

    Pretty cool!

    Maybe they should start a contest: find yourself from a previous visit.

    PhotoShop editing so Integral doesn't show the faces of his children who might be mortified to be seen in a picture with their dad all over the internet. :biggrin:

    Sorry, all I could see in that first picture were Integral's legs. Great legs. :shy:

    This is pretty close! I am not quite ready to expose the rest of my family to the sharks on this board. :biggrin:

    I thought hiding them behind the mural was a pretty good idea. I left the legs just to make you all scratch your heads a bit. I didn't realize that they would be a distraction.

    This is a totally amazing photo Mosaic, the two level bit still blows me away. Unfortunately I did not have time to really adsorb it in real life. It was very hard to see Steamboat Willy while standing in front of it, I think you would have to be back a good distance to see that pic.
