I apologize if I accidentally took a picture of a hot chick in a thong bikini in this presentation, but since they are *everywhere* this summer, that’s difficult to avoid. Although breaking my cubic illusion rules can cause terrible headaches or result in boring, flat images, breaking the rules at the U.S Open Of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California can be much more serious, not only in the water, but on the beach and on the trails. You bicycle riders might be as surprised as I was was to find out that you don’t have the right-of-way on the trails. As far as my cubic illusion rules are concerned, after a few months of nail-biting and head-scratching, I finally cracked the 360 degree 3D depth nut and drove the nails into its coffin, and the magical amount of net deviation can be observed in these four shots: 1/4 of the normal amount of 3.3% (1/30), which is precisely .825%. This four-shot slideshow plays for three minutes, so you have plenty of time to rotate it and look around. There is no audio in this one.
Look at this! While Janice and I weren’t paying attention, they removed the huge Wells Fargo sign from the tall building on Barranca Street, which showed us how to get home from the beach after dark. 😦
As I explain in this video, I’m totally exhausted from our first of many trips to the beach this summer, and I’m going to do something about it!
Rotate the view to the right to see a 3D photo of my 1996 Ford Explorer.
Again adventuring out into the real world, calculating a normal-looking stereo base for my dual Canon 3D rig, in this video I’d like to explain why Janice and I usually don’t go to the beach in the winter.
