My own stereo attempts

I have been taking a few stereo photos of my own. I am mainly using a Stereo Realist camera (about 55 years old) which takes 35mm film, and I then view the slides in a 'red button' Realist slide viewer which gives superb results. I have scanned some of the slides to make printed stereocards using the excellent program StereoPhotoMaker. A few of these cards are shown here.

You probably do not have a stereo viewer to look at these pictures. You may be able to see the stereo effect by free-viewing.

    This was actually taken with a single compact digital camera. Two handheld pictures were taken sequentially, moving slightly to take the two shots from roughly 2" to 3" apart. The resultant photos were then turned into a card using SteeroPhotoMaker.
