First Day with the Loreo 3-D Lenses

I finally got the adapter I needed to use my Loreo 3-D lenses with my Sony NEX 5, so I spent a couple of hours yesterday taking pictures and learning how to use the lenses.  I'm like a child playing with magnets.  I just can't quite believe the magic of looking at a scene captured in three dimensions instead of the more common two.  From now on I'm going to feel like a sucker every time I am forced to snap away without the vital third dimension.  What is so funny is that of course I wander daily through a three dimensional world and find it staggeringly mundane, but take this third dimension and place it in some new context, like photography, and I'm transfixed.

If you have anaglyph glasses (the red/cyan ones) or parallel glasses or you can do the cross-eyed free viewing, you can view all the photos I took.  Below is one of them, an anaglyph of Osita. It's freaky to see every hair on hers sticking out in 3-D!
