DUDE! It’s so 3-D in here right now!
WAY back when I put this together (late 1800’s) the cool kids were all about stereoscopic cards, slightly offset images viewed through a stylish pair of glasses (mine were totally Wayfarers) that altered one’s depth perception. 3-D! Or so I’ve heard. I wasn’t into it, as I was still tired-out from my youth… which I spent constructing cliff dwellings.

At last I am the first to comment. OK, it’s friggin 35 minutes past midnight here but I’m first I say, first!!!!!
Bum bah dah daaahhhhh!
Friggin fanfares are playing for everyone’s favorite Loon! 🙂
But only in her head.
My ability to create audio is a bit limited at the moment, I guess.
So that’s what all the noise was about 🙂
Just wait until I remember where I put my drum set… 🙂
Hmm, OK, I’ve settled down now. Cool photo, this is exactly where I imagine Osama to be hiding out in.
I hear he’s got a nicer stereo system though.
For pumping Whitney Houston jams 24/7.
Genius as usual, Inky!
Thank you very much, Dishy! 🙂
Hi…Love the stero effect! BTW, every time I see your avatar, I smile 😀
Thanks so much, Mary!
Hahaha – that avatar was created during my brief stint as webcomic guy…
Your “brief stint” produced some awesome comics
That’s very kind of you to say, Tony…
I appreciate it, sir!
So what’s the url for your online store where I can purchase the 3D glasses. Lovely old ruins
we’re temporarily out of stock…
but I’ll keep you updated, Tony! 🙂
OK thanks. Guess I’ll just have to wait…
I’ll keep petering the factory about increasing production…
Is this like a side by side comparison shot where I am supposed to find why each photo differs from the other?
In other news, where’s Waldo?
In a way…
there are subtle differences. I’m not sure finding them would feel nearly as rewarding as locating good ‘ol Waldo, though! 🙂
I love this for many reasons.
1) It’s an awesome photo(s).
2) I love it in the old timey frame.
3) It reminds me of vacation which obviously = Yay!
4) It reminds me of Casey and West. 🙂 Always a + for me.
Do you think I should have brightened/saturated the frame? It might have been reminiscent of freshly squeezed limes…
Lol! Now I want a margarita!
I want a pretzels. 🙂
Neat image, but it really isn’t a 3D pair, is it? There doesn’t seem to be any real parallax between the images.
No sir… I was just attempting to replicate the look of a stereoscopic card from the late 1800’s (without the glasses on, anyway). 🙂
Inky… very cool! As someone who’s actually held, fondled, looked at and gazed upon some of those early stereoscope cards I can say you’ve done a great job!!
You are going to have to spill it at some point and talk about your process for aging your images!
Thank you very much, sir! I did my best to check out as many examples as I could first… I was hoping this one was at least in the ballpark.
Hahaha… anytime! I’ll never shut-up once I get started, though! 🙂
I like the look of that place.
It was very interesting, S.E. –
very touristy, though… it was a challenge to get an ‘isolated’ looking shot…
Fascinating – early 3D! I’d never heard of stereoscopic cards and you just got me pottering around Wiki. I’m gettin’ me an edumecation. 🙂
Pretty interesting stuff, huh? And more technologically advanced than most of the stuff I have laying around my apartment! 🙂
