Holga Panorama

Here's a two panel panorama made with the Holga toy camera. The photos were taken last fall when I was on a bike ride. The building is somewhere around Western Ave. and 75th St. in Chicago. I like the 1950's era decorative element over the entrance on the left.
Getting a good panorama with the Holga isn't as easy as you might think. One interesting 'feature' of the Holga is that the camera actually records much more of a scene than you actually see through the viewfinder. It's hard to know where to line up your shots as a result. I've attempted Holga panoramas where I only end up using every third image. There is so much overlap in images that many of the shots are redundant.
