    I have always been fascinated by how our brains create a three dimensional image using the combined image from each eye. I was just as excited when I realized that you can mimic that process by using two separate photos taken from from two slightly different angles, and cross your eyes, looking at one with each eye.
    As a kid, I loved those magic eye images, and always was able to see them pretty easily.

    Anyway, a few years ago, I started messing around with making 3D (Stereoscopic) images with a regular digital camera. I even built a little jig that allowed me to take one image, then slide the camera over and take another. Most of them I did freehand though.

    These are all viewed using the cross-eyed method. Enjoy!

    Very nice, I particularly liked the wood pile and trees.

    Neat-o.
    The wood pile shows the 'stereo effect' to particularly good advantage (to my eyes, at least).
