Something's fishy

Living room print

I haven't been so into the photography thing since we got back from Florida. It figures, doesn't it? Now that I have two memory cards I can store more than 1000 photos. But have I wanted to take any? No.

I thought I might need a little inspiration, so last week I was browsing rentglass.com. They had a fisheye lens in stock, and I rented it on the spur of the moment. It's a 16mm, and it's not quite as fishy as I expected. For example, I don't see a lot of distortion in this image (granted, I cropped it a bit):

Endless aisle

It does make the aisle look endless though, doesn't it? Wegmans is a big store, but it's not quite that big. And in case you're wondering: Yes, J.P. is sometimes embarrassed to be seen with me in public. Like when I carry a camera instead of my purse, and take pictures in the grocery store. Or when I walk around the front yard, taking pictures of the mailbox, the street, and our house.

Off-kilter

As long as the grocery store aisle looks, the close-up shots look tall and flat. But here's my favorite shot of the weekend:

Tiny moon

I like the rounded horizon (a corn field), the little bit of pink left in the sky, and the itty-bitty moon.

I don't have to return the lens until Friday. Is there anything you want me to shoot with the fisheye perspective while I still have it? I'm taking suggestions, but don't bother to ask for a self-portrait. J.P. took a picture of me on Saturday, and let me tell ya, fisheye Sharkey ain't a pretty sight!
