Paris 26 Gigapixels

26a.jpg

I have to agree with the A/N Blog that Paris 26 Gigapixels -- a rooftop panorama from the top of Saint Sulpice that stitches 2,346 individual hi-res photos -- is quite a way to while away some time. The mansard roofscape definitely dominates the foreground, and well-known sites (Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, etc.) are highlighted, but I spent a little bit of time looking for some recent architecture. What did I find?
