Picture of the Week 30 – Fisheye Fun in the Bookstore

Canon EOS 5D ,Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX Fisheye
1/30s f/11.0 at 15.0mm iso800

Our travels for the last two weeks took us as far north as Portland, Oregon. One of the highlights there for us was a visit to Powell’s Books, which claims to be “the largest used and new bookstore in the world”.

I just had to have more fun with the rented fisheye. It’s interesting to compare this with last week’s fisheye shot. In the redwoods photo, all the curved lines seem to converge in the tree tops, drawing the eye to a single point in the image. In comparison, in this shot the lines are curving in a lot of different directions, which I think makes the eye wander a bit more around the image. Either shot was a lot of fun!

Next up will be an equipment review of what might well be the best photo backpack ever created. Stay tuned!
