I'm fascinated with digital photography. I just recently turned up Panorama Factory, a piece of software that will allow you to take a collection of pictures, and it'll stitch them together into one (nearly) seamless whole.
The first one here came from three pictures I took by hand (click for a larger view, really it's large):
And then this one I took last night in my front yard. This one's supposed to be a full 360, but I must have got lazy near the end, because you can see a pretty obvious seam by the big tree.
I haven't yet registered the program, so it watermarks the images, but fairly soon I'll get around to paying for it. After that, I'll find myself buying a special panoramic bracket to go in between my tripod and my camera.
And then a nicer camera.
