3D City: Ride Shares


3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular

Walking is for suckers. These folks know how to get around the neighborhood in style! Which reminds me, someday I’m-a get an exclusive 3D City photo shot with Segway-Poodle-Guy (Rocco and John, I believe). All shots taken in the Mission on my little Lumix 3D1.

3D City: The Cardboardians


3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular

I spent the weekend hanging out with a bunch of talented film makers and artists making a music video for my song “Rumspringa“. On Saturday afternoon we were joined by some folks who call themselves The Cardboardians to shoot some scenes around the Mission. Here are some behind the scenes wigglegrams of The Cardboardians in action. You can see the debut of our 48hr music video and several others at the Music Video Race Premiere Party this Sunday night in SF, with live music by my pals Rin Tin Tiger.

3D City: The Fireworks of the Mission

The fog may have blocked our view of the city’s big fireworks show, but from our friend’s roof in the Mission we had a great view of the neighborhood’s many illegal fireworks. In fact we seemed sandwiched right between two of the more popular fireworks spots, with the largest being on the corner of 19th and Bryant. A little later in the night our friend Eddie launched his quad-copter drone and came back with this great footage of the Mission’s unofficial fireworks show.

3D City: Dolores Tower

Along with the typical Wachoski and hunky Jesus spottings, you’re likely to spot these acrobats doing their thing in Dolores Park once or twice a week. I’m not exactly sure which group this was, but I’m thinking it could be AcroYoga. If you know, share some info in the comments. Shot with my Nimlso 3D camera on Kodak T-Max film.

3D City: This Is It

Couldn’t resist snapping off a photo of this snazzy poster being hung in the SoMa. The artist’s name is Susan O’Malley and you can find more of her work at Romer Young Gallery in SF. More poster shots, and some scenes from outside of Different Fur Studios below. Shot with my Nimlso 3D camera on Kodak T-Max film.

3D City: Beeautiful People

Jei Cheetah, seen above rocking a two handed yo-yo routine, has been a regular at the yearly Bay Area Classic competition in Golden Gate Park. There aren’t many furries competing at yo-yo competitions these days, but I’m kind of hoping this is a trend we’ll see grow. Not just in yo-yoing… table tennis, climbing, skiing, everywhere. Put a fuzzy red fox suit on a pitcher and I bet it’d make baseball more fun to watch.

3D City: The Birdmen of 16th Street


3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular

San Francisco’s “Swan” (or sometimes “Birdman”) can most often be found feeding the pigeons at 16th and Mission. Where he’s been hanging out and selling his daily newsletter’s for the last decade. Though he’s usually by himself, there’s been another dude that’s been joining him for about an hour a day to feed the pigeons. The two don’t talk much to each other, in fact I don’t think they even know each other’s names, though you can find them sitting by each other around noon at the 16th st BART.

If you see Swan, please consider donating a couple bucks for his most recent newsletter (or “rag” as he calls it), which features his own drawings, poetry, and ramblings.

[Most of these photos were taken on my old Nimslo 3D camera with Ilford HP5 film except for the wide shot above, which was done on my Lumix 3D1] More shots after the bump.

3D City: Fun and Games

Now that The Galley is doing their thing at Clooney’s Pub, I’ve spent more time hanging out there than I did the 3 years that I lived directly across the street. Some regulars pass the time playing pool or liar’s dice, and occasionally you’ll hear some really weird tune, like Los Pikadientes de Caborca’s tuba heavy cover of “Billie Jean“, blasting on the jukebox.

Another shot after the bump.

3D City: The Embarcadero

3D City: Everyday


3D City is a year long stereoscopic photography project by Doctor Popular

With funds for film and developing being a little tight at the moment, I’ve been carrying around my Lumix 3D1 more and more these days. It’s small, has a wide lens, and the most subtle stereoscopic lens distance of any other digital camera at the moment. It’s nice to have a pocket sized camera to carry around the neighborhood again. If you don’t mind having the menu in Japanese, you can also grab an Olympus 3D1 here for a hundred bucks less. Since the UI is mostly symbols, it’s not that difficult to navigate either way. Speaking of money saving tips: the $15 haircuts at Lee Hong on 16th (in the above photo) are a hell of a deal.
