I wasn't the only person with a camera at the rodeo. I saw a fellow near the arena gate with a fancy rig that held two cameras about a foot apart. I didn't give it much thought and probably assumed it was a way to get good coverage of the action. I didn't realize until the next issue of Nickel & Dime came out that he was producing stereoscope type images! Several businesses that distribute this "good news" paper had the red and blue eye window headsets for activating the effect, and they turned out great! It looks like the printer was off alignment if you don't know what's going on without the special glasses. Craig Gardner was the wizard-photographer, but he doesn't list a website. You can enlarge this photo for contact information. This was shot at a table in J.D. Redhouse after I'd already cleared my tasty dish of raspberry ripple ice cream. Next time, I'll share.
