Galata Tower: Aerial

Galata Tower. You imagine it as an old tower with a spiral staircase and old babushkas resting on each step, but going inside you see two modern elevators full of people, stale air and a great looking restaurant.

My very first high-parallax panorama (the tower is 16 meters wide) was taken from the observation deck (~52 meters from the ground), sneaking between the crowds of tourists. The roof for the 360cities version was modeled in 3D by the photographs to get the full sphere.
