Classic Ford Stake Truck in 3D

We posted a 2D picture of this truck about five years ago in the Other Blog. It is a classic old Ford stake truck that sometimes sits in the QuickLane Showroom, just up the street from our house. We have seen other old cars on display there, but the old truck keeps on coming back. Today, I took an image pair to render this stereoscopic anaglyph while waiting for my truck to be serviced.

In case you don’t have a pair of red/cyan 3D glasses handy, here is the non-stereo view:

Old Tombstone Wagon in 3D

I found myself rummaging through some old photos in the archives today and found an image pair that I took in Tombstone, AZ back in 2009. This is a very old buckboard wagon from the 19th century that was sitting along one of the Tombstone side streets. I found the image pair I took back then and today merged them into the anaglyph image above (click to enlarge).

If you don’t happen to have a pair of red/cyan glasses handy, you can view the 2D version of the image here.

Verna and I were out walking the dogs a couple of days ago when I heard the distinctive sound of a radial engine-powered airplane overhead. I did not have my fancy DSLR camera with me at the time, or I’m certain I would have taken a better photo, but this one is not bad considering I used my pocket-sized Canon A1400 point-and-shoot camera. By coincidence, the plane passed very nearly in front of the waning crescent moon. Click on the image to enlarge.

We recently got a scanner for the office. It is a modern one that runs completely off of the USB port voltage without need for an additional external power source.

I had the above photo hanging in the old office in Torrance until we rescued many of the relics from the house last month. The photo was actually a color print, but the UV from sunlight streaming through the windows for years managed to fade it to a point that I had to recover it in monochrome (sepia in this case) after running it through the scanner.

The photo was taken circa 1976 around the time Nixon was resigning after I had flown a photo shoot for a local photographer. He rewarded me by taking this photo of me hovering in the Hughes 269B helicopter, tail number N9408F “Zero-Eight Foxtrot.” Click on the image to enlarge.

58 Chevrolet Apache Pickup in 3D

Verna and I were at the pharmacy picking up a prescription today, when an old gentleman drove into the lot in this gorgeous 1958 Chevrolet Apache pickup truck. Verna took several pictures of the truck and I discovered that I could merge two of them into this anaglyph image.
