This is a 3-d photo pair of a fuchsia from our porch. If you are a long time reader, you might remember this post from last year with a 3-d iris photo pair. I'm thinking the iris one is a bit easier to see, so for more thorough instructions and practice you might want to click on the link and look at that one first. What it all boils down to is that your brain normally sees two separate images (one from each eye) from slightly different angles and then puts them together so you can perceive depth. You can do the same thing with photographs by taking an image and then taking another image from slightly to the left of the original viewpoint, and then reversing them (first image on the left and second on the right) as you look at them. At that point you need to cross your eyes to where you see three separate images and the middle one will be in 3-d. Once again, the linked post explains it better, and a couple of the commenters mentioned a trick that helped them focus to get the effect.
I went down to the harbor today to check on the status of the boat and trailer. The boat is out of the water (I had it in a slip for a couple days while the trailer work was being done) and back on the trailer, which has had a primer coat. I suspect the remaining paint job occurs during my next charter or when they can stick it in a slip for another day. Nothing much other to report at this point.
