Kudos to Michael. Stereo photography for architecture is one of the profession's great missed opportunities. I started using stereo photography in architecture (mostly 7-perf Realist format) in the early '90s. I also taught a stereo photography course at the University of Houston College of Architecture for almost 10 years. Students loved the medium.
Our work eventually lead to one first CD-ROM games in the mid 90s: Knowledge Adventure's 3D Dinosaur Adventure. It came out around the time of Jurassic Park. Spielberg like the game so much, he bought part of the company.
About 10 years ago, we designed an anaglyphic stereo cover for Texas Architect magazine. Alas, it was never published. The editors thought (Frank Lloyd Wright's unabashed love of stereography notwithstanding) that architects we're ready yet for stereo photography.
With todayís computer tools, stereo photography is accessible to anyone with an interest. Iíve presented numerous lectures on stereo photography at conferences, seminars and trade shows, but a lot more can be written about this: techniques, technology, exhibits, etc. Keep up the good work.
