The upmarket apartment building Number One Deansgate rises up above the city with its exterior walls of sheer glass. We are standing on the Blackfriars Street corner looking up at the building with one of the blue tourist signs in the foreground.
Viewed in stereo, the sign pops out in front of you, and the building is set back, capturing fully its size and impact. This is the first stereo image made using the Stereo Realist camera. I am now shooting in stereo on film side by side with digital camera. More on stereo soon.
