Both Sides at Once Macro - an afterthought!

Ok, so you have to try and combine techniques and ideas. This is the Wappie given the lenticular treatment (scroll down the blogs to see). The straight on view is in the centre with views from the left and right, photographed and then made into this triptych. You see the top and underside of the wasp and the virtual friend sliced head on - a bit like looking at it prowling on the outside of an obscure glass door - then when you go to the side it gets in!

It is especially for all Spheksophobiics (from spheco, meaning "wasp" in Greek). This is the fear of wasps, a branch of entomophobia, fear of insects (looked up on Google - it is a great word!). I think Spheksophobics would only get the full buzz from the actual print!

Thanks for looking at this!
