This is a "low ghost color anaglyph" of Bodie California. The red lens goes over the left eye and the cyan lens goes over the right one.
Bodie was mining town that became a ghost town and is now a state park. Cyanide leaching was developed here in the field to the left below the stamping facility. Undertaking was a thriving business in the profitable world before the time of OSHA.
Beyond mining and undertaking this town was know for its taverns, gambling houses, and personal services. It also had electric power in the 1890s since falling water was available and since all or the trees were needed for shoring the mine. Do you see any trees here? There were once, but they were all taken and never replanted. Stealing firewood was a capital offense and you could shoot the culprit on the spot. They built a railroad to get more trees from the North shore of Mono Lake, and those mostly did not come back either. Some pockets of twigs made a few comebacks as trees. But this is what it looks like when only short term interests are served - short term profits, near term deaths, and long term devistation. History repeats itself due to failure to learn from the past.
This anaglyph image has some splicing problems. These are due to the fact that foreground spliced and the background did not. If I had excluded the foreground this would not have happened. Of if I had zoomed in the the image more and had a smaller angle between the shots it might have worked better. I post this because it is somwhat interesting to view where it works. This is also to show some what some of the issues are when you try to do this at home. There are actually a hundred people or more that want to shoot stereo panoramas and many are members of Yahoo Groups that take stereo photos (Photo-3D and StereoData Maker (SDM), and tech-3D)
