How to show your photos to Millions of viewers - Photospheres & Google Maps

Click here for 360'

It is fun to take photos on our journeys...but what do you with them once your family and friends start getting that glazed look in their eyes?!  Well, there's a massive audience actively seeking photos like yours and mine... on Google Maps.  Where else can you get millions of viewers without breaking a sweat (perhaps on YouTube...but it takes a LOT of work).  My photos receive roughly 10,000 views per week and my current count is over 4 million views.  Click on this link to check out my entire portfolio of over 500 photos on Google Maps.

I particularly enjoy posting 360 degree Photospheres - such as the one above of the Roman Agora in Athens, Greece (coordinates 37.974, 23.727).  You should be able to click on each of these captions for a 360' view.

Here's another one from a wonderful vista of Porto Timoni beach on the island of Corfu, Greece.

 Here's one I took in the amazing Galleria Umberto I in Naples, Italy, built in the late 19th Century.

I take these photospheres with my Android cell phone using the Google Camera app.  They aren't perfect but they sure are fun!!
