Fisheye Roundhouse



I had a 45 year old fish-eye lens along when I did a camera swap with Earle last weekend.

That trip was about using each other’s cameras as you have seen in some of my recent posts.

But I was in the middle of the first roll to test the fish-eye so I brought that camera along too and shot with it a few times.

The E&N roundhouse in Vic-West was a great place to try the lens, even though it was raining and it is hard to keep drops of the front element for which no hood is possible.

    • Thanks Kate! More to come for sure. There were quite a number of shots that I like from that roll of film. But, the lab left behind acres of dust on the scan and its taking time to clean it up. I should have taken it back, but wanted to use some images right away so am paying the price for my impatience.

      • I frequently have to pay that price myself. I am glad to see this new direction. It is fun and interesting. It kind of reminds of the times when I was little and would hang off a chair or a swing to see what the world looked like upside down. A whole new perspective!
