3-D For the Holidays

Comcast unveils its holiday program, a 3-D extravaganza complete with silly glasses.

3-D For the Holidays

I couldn't resist a chance to update a classic Life photo - 1952's movie audience in 3-D glasses watching Bwana Devil.

Comcast Corp. ordered 100,000 DEVO-esque shades for visitors to experience the visual effects of their "Holiday Spectacular in 3-D" on the giant video wall in the lobby of the tallest building between New York and Chicago. Click here, or on the picture of employees and an artful mannequin, for a photo gallery from Tuesday's preview.

About this blog

Tom Gralish is a general assignment photographer at The Inquirer, concentrating on local news and self-generated feature photos.

He has been at the paper since 1983, photographing everything from revolution in the Philippines to George W. Bush’s road to the White House to homeless people living on the street right outside his newspaper's front door. For his photo essay on Philadelphia’s homeless, he was awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the Robert F. Kennedy Award.

His weekly newspaper column, "Scene Through the Lens," takes a look at Philadelphia's urban landscape.

Gralish, along with Inquirer colleague and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Michael Vitez, spent a year visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art to capture the stories and photos of "Rocky runners" who come from all over the world to climb the steps - just as Sylvester Stallone did in the Academy Award winning film, Rocky. Their book, Rocky Stories: Tales of Love, Hope and Happiness at America’s Most Famous Steps, was published in November 2006.
