Just for fun, I had a go at stereoscopic photography on our recent trip to Meigetsu-in. I hadn't realised just how easy it was. So long as the subject matter isn't moving, there is no need for any fancy stereo camera gear, you just have to take two photos, moving the camera a small distance between shots. It doesn't even seem to require any great precision in composition. To view, you need to deconverge (not cross) your eyes so that each looks at a different image. It may take a little practice to separate the convergence from the focus distance, but once you have locked to the image on you should be able to look around it quite easily.
The first seems to work a little better, perhaps because there are more layers at different depths. But the lower one is the famous worn steps, free of tourists for the few few minutes after opening while the keen photographers all quietly line up to take their pictures!
