The Fleet Departs
The Rose Festival often attracts naval ships to lay anchor in Portland’s downtown Waterfront Park. After a weekend of celebrating their shore leave, the sailors had to depart on Monday. I happened to catch one of the larger ships beginning its journey down the Willamette River under a fully raised Steel Bridge. I took a series of photos thinking I could string them together for a nice little animated GIF. I tried to hold the camera in a steady position, but when I got back to the office I realized that I make a pretty lousy tripod.
It’s a very easy process. Just select “Photomerge…” from the file menu, load the images, uncheck “Blend Images Together” and hit “OK”.
