AGMF – Sons Of Korah

AGMF – Sons Of Korah

See this Virtual Tour in FullScreen High Definition mode. Opens In New Window + Audio FullScreen Virtual Tour [2.5MB] We interrupt our regular viewing to show you an event rather than a place. AGMF – the Australian Gospel Music Festival is an annual event, running in Toowoomba each Easter. It begins in about 2 weeks which is why we’ve taken this opportunity to show a few virtual tours from last year. The Sons of Korah are playing in this virtual tour. Check out the High Definition version (linked above) to hear the audio as well. These guys play the golden oldies. No not your parents music, the 3000yr old Psalms of the bible. Beautiful music. (Excuse the poor audio, it’s recorded live when I’m shooting, then massively compressed for web delivery) See Full Size Google Map with all AGMF Virtual Tours – Click Here.INSERT_MAP AGMF & Band, Links, Websites – Click...

Interestingly this Broadbeach Virtual Tour was shot exactly 1 year ago today. It was from the 1st series of panos I did with my current setup. Another piece of useless information is that my company (formerly known as Fusion Creative) did a multimedia cd-rom of this site & facility for the Jupiters consortium that eventually won the bid to build & run the centre. I think we charged $5,000 – I think they charged $120...

QuickTime [1.4MB] Opens In New Window + Audio DevalVR [1.4MB] Danger Point, overlooking Duranbah Beach, was named by Captain Cook in 1770 (Mr Cook was credited with discovering Australia). It was so named to warn later mariners of dangerous coral reefs off the coast. For his trouble the Captain Cook Memorial was built here 200 years later. You wouldn’t know to look at it, (I didn’t and I was there) but the memorial is in fact a lighthouse. The memorial lighthouse also marks the state border between the Gold Coast, Queensland & Tweed Heads, New South Wales. You can see a diagonal line under the monument, that is the border, which means this Gold Coast virtual tour, wasn’t shot on the Gold Coast...
