Getting Started

3D Camp, originally uploaded by Aaron Nystrom.

Well, I started this thing with the intent of sharing an occasional thought and/or photo with friends and family, and to get it going I am posting this photo because it represents so many of the things I really love. First, that is my wife sitting on the log and I must say, I love her a ton. This was taken in Yosemite (a very beautiful place) on a backpacking trip (I love backpacking) at our campsite (camping is amazing) in the mountains (another plus) in the wilderness (I love getting away from the city), and it is a 3D shot (which I thoroughly enjoy taking and looking at). In case you don't know how these work, you have to cross your eyes, bringing the two images together, then focus on that combined image to see the scene in three dimentions. It is a little trick I learned from my Dad years ago, and it brings me great delight. If you have never done this before it may take some time (one friend of mine stared at one of these for about three hours before he figured it out). Be patient, for it is worth the effort.

Anyway, all that to say, welcome to my little corner of the internet. Now let's see if I can keep this thing up.
