This VERY big house at the side of the water and in the wooded hills looks like a wonderful retreat for those seeking isolation. The gentlemen taking these stereo pairs images were no mean photographers, and a study of them would do a budding photographer no harm at all!
Can I just say that posting last Friday, I thought that the drawing would be a damp squib, even at the bottom of the sea, but in fact, it proved to be both interesting and entertaining. Thank you all!
