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

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


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

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.

Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos: Muses

Every now and then, photographer Joshua Cobos shoots a roll of film just for us, picks his 13 favorites, and we publish them here and it’s called “Bad Blood.” It used to be weekly but it’s become more sporadic since Joshua’s move to Los Angeles a few months back. He still comes back to SF every chance he gets (which is great for all of us) but regardless of where he shoots his rolls, it’s always a joy to get a peek inside his process with each new edition. Here’s what Joshua has to say about this week’s spread:

Beauty and muses are difficult concepts for me sometimes. Muses by their nature are not permanent so I’m constantly coming to a crossroad where people are coming and going out of my life as they please. Beauty on the other hand can be quite subjective. I’ve known many muses that desire to work with as many artists as possible so they can see all the different reflections and interpretations of themselves. On the rare occasion, I myself have been a muse for an artist. It’s rewarding and a momentary relief from the stress of work and reality.

Thanks, Joshua! Be sure to follow him on Instagram and on Twitter. Ten more shots after the jump:
