Wikipedia Description: California Tortilla
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
California Tortilla is a chain of franchised fast casual Mexican restaurants, the first of which was opened in 1995 in Bethesda, Maryland by business partners Pam Felix and Alan Cohen. The chain's menu, which features burritos, is comparable to that of its competitors, such as Baja Fresh and Chipotle Mexican Grill. A typical restaurant has 2,500 square feet (230 m2) with seating for 75 people. California Tortilla was voted in 2009 by readers of Washingtonian magazine as having the best burritos.
Missing Some Bigger photos? Each new digital camera by default wants to take larger and larger photos. To save myself time and server space, I don't upload to the web site versons of photos that are bigger than 2.75 megabytes to the web page. If you want the biggest sized photo and you don't see a link bigger than 0640x0480, email Bruce Guthrie and I'll email specific photos to you.
Stitched photos: "Stitched" photos are made up of two or more individual photos merged together to form one big picture by overlapping them. While the results are frequently impressive (being able to see panoramic views), the photos are seldom all that precise due to distortion as well as differences in lighting and exposure from picture to picture.
Size of Stitched Photos: Stitched photo files end up larger because the photos are combined to form one larger photo. While the file sizes aren't bad for the 160x120 and 640x480 pages, the original stitched files can be 10+ megabytes each. To save space, the biggest versions of the stitched photos are not loaded on the site.
