London Panoramic Photographer


Also known as the place I write words.

At last the wait is over 🙂 Google have released Google Earth for the web. I quickly got to grips with it using my .kml file from 360 Cities, and using a spare domain I bought with exactly this in mind.

So please check out my newest website, called VR Planet

Simply install the web browser plug-in when prompted and away you go !!!

Here’s some quick screengrabs, enjoy 🙂
