A bit hard to look at after a while, but an interesting look back.

Converting to GIFs is a nice way to regain a bit of the 3D effect. When I was a kid, I remember having spent hours with stereoviews…

Seeing colour photos of the past is always fascinating and making these stereo shots GIFs was a smart move.

Here some colour shot of Paris from 100 years back, that I came across earlier.

Jeffrey Friedl has done some recent work with this as well.  He started with having the mouse move the image back and forth and then went with animated .gifs instead: http://regex.info/blog/2012-11-17/2142

Mike,
Thanks for reminding me that Jeffrey Friedl has some handy and very nice photo-related utilities. I tend to associate him with his Regular Expressions books…
