This photograph is a stereo pair that allows a viewer to see the desert landscape in 3-D. To do that, look at the black line separating the images and cross your eyes to overlap the left and right images—you should see three images, the stereo image is in the center with the left and right images on each side. Seeing a stereo image may take a bit of practice and you may need to rotate your head to fuse the two panels. You can enlarge the image by clicking on it. The larger image may be easier to view.

Koenji—On the Streets of Tokyo

In the 1990s, shopping streets were a common feature of Tokyo neighborhoods and a central locus for communities. Shops were often multigenerational family businesses. Today, large department stores and online retailers are making the economics of running local stores difficult, if not impossible. This street in Koenji from the 90s is typical of many of these thoroughfares. Click on the image for a larger view.

Retention Ponds

Florida is a giant sand bar. You need not dig very deep before hitting water. This presents problems with construction as roads and buildings make surfaces impervious to rain, causing a flooding hazard from runoff. Retention ponds are dug to mitigate flooding from development. While natural lakes in Florida are shallow, retention ponds are deep, penetrating the ground 40 or 50 feet. But, because of the high water table, these ponds need to be pumped while under construction. In the woods to the left of the image is a temporary holding pond. Click on the image for a larger view.
