148/366-- Tam Watching the Sunset -Shot through the circle thing-e

3rd appearance of the circle thing-e (which is a piece of glass i found and it compresses the whole scene inside the circle and then you get the background as well. I have no clue what this piece of glass is but ive had it for years as you will see it randomly throughout my work. It was getting late out and the sun was just dropping at the bottom of the horizon so i grabbed my 30mm and the circle thing-e and me and tam took a hike down to the waterfront for the last of day 148's light.

When you look through the circle thing-e its really a trip to see everything inside the circle and then your peripheral vision sees the rest of the scene and then when you look though your camera and hold up the circle thing-e it really is an awesome way to see whats around you, The hard part is getting the focus right in the circle for the right depth of field and then its hard to get a good composition as well to ensure your balance is right, so after a few adjustments i found what looked like the best spot and thanks again to tam for always putting up with my photos and missions as adding a person to this scene really helped anchor the whole composition and give you that im standing there feeling...This was Day 148 of 366
