3D Images also Featured

I love the "surprise" of a 3D image at the point were the brain "sees" the effect. I've been making 3D images for years and have found an appreciation of the anaglyph technique (the Red/Blue -- actually Cyan glasses -- approach). A stereo camera is not needed (and was not used) for the images I took. The image to the left started out as two glass-plate negatives, however, taken before the turn of the century in Hawaii and prepared as an analygph. The quality of these large format photographs is amazing. One can but wonder at the skill of 19th century photographers working in these difficult conditions with large cameras and sensitive emulsions.!
