This is a sample image from the BW-3D-CD Project. This CD-ROM includes a historical collection of over 1,000 modern stereoviews presented as both stereo pairs and as anaglyphs. The backs of each stereoview are also presented to document what is contained in the 3-D image on the card. A lorgnette viewer, and a pair of anaglyph glasses will be included with every copy.
If you have ever been involved in the Photo-3D E-Mail list, or a member of the NSA, PSA, SSA, etc for any length of time, chances are that you have already heard of Bill Walton. Bill is a champion of the stereo photography cause, and quite the prolific stereo photographer.
Several years ago Bill created a book, "BACK TO BASICS: INFANTRY ONE STATION UNIT TRAINING IN 3-D." This book contains 75 black & white stereo pairs of today's infantry soldiers' initial training at Fort Benning, Georgia. This CD includes many more images that were taken during the creation process of this book.
