3D Mules & Coal Cart
This Mule Cart was found along the way, in search of the working equines of Soweto. The above technique is known as 3D or VR Lenticular and was achieved with a special “Spherical Tripod Head”, courtesy “Manfrotto Tripods”. The Lenticular lens & interlacing was supplied by “Images in Motion”.
