Something interesting happens when photos taken of an object at different angles are displayed in succession: the object appears to rotate in 'three dimensions'.
Give it a try by clicking on either image to the right.
I tried this multi-angle three-dimension photographic idea during a visit to southeastern Utah in May 2004, where there are plenty of spectacular 3D landscapes.
These photos were my first go at this technique of multi-angle photography. I did it casually, but now that I know it works, I'd like to photograph these scenes again, with more attention to exposure and alignment. If you'd like to give it a try, I'd like to see your results (click here for how-to notes relating to the photos and making the web page).

Display problems? When you press the 'Load images' button beneath each photo, you should see this sequence:
If the text changes but the browser gets stuck on the "Loading..." message, it is waiting for one of the images. Maybe the remote web site is slow, or the image specified by the web page doesn't exist (and so will never arrive). Try pressing 'refresh' on your browser, in case one of the requests was lost in the internet.
