I'm going to start a fund to raise money to buy Ann another lens....or is the F-E wedged in place?

Sorry. That was s(h)narky.

I thought you would enjoy these pictures hd. I don't think they sell a lens that only skews to the left.

A little tweaking and it could look like a fabulous painting.

Wow, those clouds are positively rococo.

I still miss the Word Trade Centers, ever time I see lower Manhattan.

Sigh.

Revenant said...

Very nice! I especially like the way the clouds look through the fisheye. Very dynamic.

You can even see the earth curvature from up there on the balcony.

Did the lens come with a sticker ``Caution : objects are nearer than they appear''?

My fisheye bicycle mirror did.

New York right now.

No, by the time the photo was taken New York had changed. Just as no one can step in the same river twice, or even once for that matter, it is also true that nothing is ever that same after it is photographed. Both the time and the matter of New York changed.

Blogging and photographing are attempts to trap dynamic reality in static representations.

Like our human need for laws and rules we have a need to regulate the almost criminal violation of our peace of mind by arresting and incarcerating a recalcitrant reality within the prison of our representations. Whether mental, verbal or visual.

Try to stop it, don't try to stop it,
It's all the same to the whole shebang,
'Cause it don't care, it don't care a rap,
Which is what really bugs man or dame.
