Expanded Perception

I got a wide angle lens for my birthday, and I thought The Dish would be a good place for an inaugural photo shoot.

 

Way-wide-angle lenses are so odd for the first time user. I had never even looked through one before, much less used one, and so I’m not sure if I have ever had this perspective before. It’s not quite intuitive to me. In contrast, a telephoto lens is familiar territory, like a telescope or binoculars, and macro zoom is like a microscope…

 

Wide is wild. It’s like de-evolving the vision system from predator to prey, from front focus to side vision.

 

(some of these should probably be seen in Original Size via the "All Sizes" button)
