3-D Florida at the Library

Jim_McManus-Life-is-3D.png

Jim McManus takes 3-D photos and right now twenty four images he created are on display downtown at the Orlando Library.

I could have stayed there staring at them for hours. Although I’m sure there’s a limit visually and maybe cognitively as to exactly how long you should immerse yourself in this stuff. Lake Eola swans glow, bridges propel you into a different time, and the Space Shuttle looks almost ready to launch…again.

There are twenty four images printed on metal affixed to three long panels outside the Melrose Center on the second floor of the library. Grab a pair of 3-D glasses and be transported. 

Top Tip: Do NOT look at the library carpet pattern with your 3D glasses on. DO NOT. It’ll make ya woozy.

Not Florida, but then sadly not everything is.
