A 3D Photo Blog dedicated to the pictures I take with my View-Master Personal and Fuji Finepix Real3d cameras.

Have You Dug Wall Drug?…in 3D?

Part 3 in my ongoing west trip series.

On any trip through South Dakota you have to stop at Wall Drug. These pictures were all taken using the “cha cha” method. In other words, not with a 3D camera but rather with a normal camera. One picture, then shifted over a couple inches, and another picture. This was before I had the Fuji 3D Camera and the View-Master Personal camera doesn’t do low light pictures so well.

Why must one stop in Wall, South Dakota? I think the pictures speak for themselves.

There. Isn’t that awesome? All that and “Free Ice water”. But wait there’s more.

This band is so awesome. I’m totally hiring them for my next clambake.

Lovely wood carved heroes of the old west sit and stand here and there. Here’s Annie Oaklie:

Wall Drug is a bit of a drive from Deadwood, but Wild Bill is a popular character in them parts.

The wax museum across the street (not affiliated with Wall Drug) also paid tribute to Wild Bill.

…as well as a many other western legends. The famous Indian who shot that one Buffalo:

The Duke and The Man With no Name:

I took some pictures with the View-Master camera too. maybe I’ll upload more one of these days.

View-Master Personal camera photos

Here are some photos I took using the View-Master Personal camera. I took these on a road trip across the western half of the U.S. that I went on in the summer of 2008. I managed to convert the images to digital format by photographing them through a loupe with a digital camera, then manipulating them in photoshop. I tell ya. The fuji digital camera is a lot easier. I spent way too much time doing that.

These dinosaurs are in Rapid City South Dakota, on the peak of a big hill in the middle of town, aptly named Dinosaur Park. I remember stopping here when I was a kid in the early 80’s and had to go back. They aren’t scientifically accurate, but that’s sorta besides the point.
