What Is Stereo?

I've had this grandiose notion I would scan dozens of samples of my personal stereo photos, to go along with the dozens of samples from my vintage photo collection. Rrrrrriiiiiiigggghhhht! Maybe after I retire. Someone on the Yahoo 3d-collector group was asking about air show photos, so I've dragged my lazy backside off the couch and, for the first time ever, scanned a couple of modern stereos. Film scanners are a major pain. Why is that? Now, to piss everyone off, I am only posting pairs for parallel viewing.

Reno Air Race Stereo Photos

Reno Baby!

To win the Gold Unlimited final race at Reno, your airplane/pilot combination must be willing and able to fly in excess of 500mph, over rough desert terrain, at an altitude of 100 feet.

Automotive Stuff

When it takes four guys to start one car, you know there's some serious schmidt going on. I love auto racing, and am equally happy at a Formula 1 race or the local 1/4 mile dirt track. In fact, within a two week stretch I have drunk champaign on a balcony at Monaco, and sat in bleachers drinking tubs of Budweiser at the Santa Maria Speedway.

Santa Barbara Fire Base Stereo Photo

Santa Barbara Fire Base

If only I had known. Owing to the need for "security," this view is now blocked by an eight foot fence. As if any self respecting terrorist would bother with a podunk airport like Santa Barbara. More importantly, we have recently seen the demise of piston driven fire fighting in southern California. Only wish I were old enough to have been taking pictures when they were flying TBMs and Tigercats.

Stereo Photos of Trains

Trains

All right, so technically this is a street car. It just happens to be the first "train related" stereo pair I have scanned. Others should follow. I'm not a huge rail fan per se, but my uncle owned several pieces of rail equipment, and I do love just about anything mechanical.
