This reminds me of "The Little Prince," by Saint-Exupery.

(So yes, Elsa, I'm single, and by your observation, probably bored as well for actually knowing this, and for actually having done a few myself.... :) :) )

'K, if I am dead wrong, then you are probably doing things the hard way.

About 5 minutes in AutoPano Giga, "Little Planet" projection:

(My little island, & a shed in bad need of a coat of paint). (I did forget to mention the requirement of taking a 360 x180ยบ pano first, whether by standard camera & many shots or 3-4 fisheye shots).

Can I cook? - well, I have a kitchen with gas hobs & electric oven, I have a car and know where the supermarket is.

That said, successfully marrying those ingredients into something resembling a meal can be a bit of a haphazard hit-or-miss affair. :)

(As for status - married under pressure, divorced under duress, single thereafter by choice - I couldn't afford to go through that nonsense again... :) )

The same thing occurred to me. I wonder if there is a small volcano in this planet. How about a rose? A goat?

Nice concept Elsa ... perhaps you should offer this idea should there ever be a remake of "The Little Prince".

Less than 30 seconds to get the pic ready and done and then a minute or two to retouch the seam out.
