3D City: Sunny Day Real Estate


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

A weekend filled with bikes, low riders, and great weather in our neighborhood. Here’s some pics in case you missed it. All shot on a Fuji FinePix digital camera, which I’m still working on a little review for (in short; a great digital camera, but the lenses are too far apart).

More shots after the bump.

3D City: Glowing

For the night is dark and full of glowy things… sorry, I’m still in character from that Game of Thrones prom thing at the Armory on Saturday. I’ve been bringing my Lumix 3D camera out on rainy nights and capturing neon signs and fire spinners around the city.

A few more shots after the bump.

Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos: The SF I Knew

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 every new edition. Here’s what Joshua has to say about this week’s edition:

This Sears camera I bought for $20 at Glass Key on Haight St. has been good to me. There’s no meter though and since it’s a rangefinder I’m constantly fighting parallax. In this set I’ve included a picture of my old house on bartlett st inspired by a series my friend Diana (http://instagram.com/dirtydiana) is doing. I went to Pops for it’s last hurrah but the photobooth was already out of commission. How much more of the SF I knew will be gone when I’m there next? Please visit the booth at the Musee Mechanique for me and send me random photostrips. 1416 N. Gardner St #4 90046

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

3D City: The New York Bubble

Spotted this super-bubble floating through a park in NYC. Some folks set up a bucket filled with soapy water and were teaching kids how to make these wobbly giants, which is tougher than it sounds.

3D City: Time To Read

Every time my wife brings her car to Mission Tires, I love to tag along. They have one of those electronic massage chairs, like you see in airports, but these are free. So I bring a couple comics along and spend an hour or two reading in the fancy chair. Last time we were there, I spotted this guy (in the pic above) going for a more old school reading position. I guess the chair was already occupied.

3D City: Cone Of Shame

I brought an old Image Tech 3D camera along on a recent walk from the Mission to North Beach. It’s a small cheap camera with 3 side by side lenses (one less than my my favorite Nimslo cam). It was fun to shoot with, but I’ll probably just stick with my Nimslo. The doggy in the top shot was spotted at Al’s Attire in North Beach. One of my favorite shops to visit when in North Beach.

Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos: Keep Bringing Me Back (2 Year Anniversary Edition!)

For 2 years now, photographer Joshua Cobos has been doing this column for us. He 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 every new edition. Here’s to another 2 years… and another 2 after that… and on and on and on and on until we’re all dead!

And now a word from Joshua:

It’s been two years since I started this column. There are days where I feel as though nothing has changed about my life, my habits, my faults and all that. My photos remind me that I am learning though, if something doesn’t work out in one exposure I have to think about why, how for the next shot. Keep bringing me back to the bay though, save my seat at Sutro Baths while I’m gone.

Thanks for everything, Joshua! Be sure to follow him on Instagram and on Twitter.

3D City: Man’s Best Friend

Bumped into this gentleman right outside our front door a month back. I stopped to chat with him a bit and he told me stories being a photography teacher back in the day. I kept running into him and beautiful doggie around the neighborhood for a few days, then I guess he moved along. Shot on my Nimslo 3D camera with Tri-X film.
