Photosphere Test 1 - Ada Salter Garden in Southwark Park, London

Google, being the super awesome entity that it is, has enabled sharing Photoshperes on websites other than G+ and Google Maps. Given that I have been shooting almost exclusively in the Photosphere format over the past few months, and given that nobody sees my pictures anyway, here's my first shot at sharing a P-sphere that I shot last week.

Thanks to +Adam Lasnik for being an awesome guide in discovering the awesome phenomenon that is helping me to better capture the scale of the world around me.

And thanks also to +Thomas Mutton for helping with the fundae for embedding this - given that I have never, ever tried any coding in Java/HTML, or that it has been over 5 years since I entered a line of code, or that I'm simply quite mad, it would have been impossible to get this correct without his advice.

As far as the location is concerned, it is the Ada Salter Garden in Southwark Park, London. More fundae regarding the same below because I'm a lazy bum and don't want to type:

Hey, this was a great way to start my morning! Thanks for the shout-out, and kudos on both the spot-on embedding and the great photo sphere (you even captured a bird in it :D)

By the way, something even I just learned by checking out your embed: you can zoom in and out in the photo sphere with your mouse scroll wheel :)

Thank you :)

It does seem to behave exactly as something shared on G+/Maps. I feel that some people (including myself, of course) would like to see buttons to flatten the image, and to go full-screen, just like in G+.
