Magic!


I couldn't resist... I used the fish eye camera I was lent again LOL! And I don't regret it, for I came up with a extremely festive photo - well, so I think! Like you can see, it allowed me to capture in the same shot the Eiffel Tower and the merry-go-round that is located on the opposite sidewalk. I promise, I won't abuse the fish-eye, but this time I really think it's cool ;-)

  1. But, you went to my favorite place and took a picture of two of my favorite things in the world, so you're forgiven and patted on the back for such a great job!

    (On a side note, I totally cannot wait to ride that carousel. Please tell me that there is no age limit!)

  4. Guess what I have scheduled to post in a few hours? Great minds think alike... Did you know that this carrousel has been set up with "people power" so that it is energy efficient with pedals? Only the French could be so clever!

  9. That's what the world looks like when you have too much to drink...

    How about a 3-D camera next? Would we need those funny specs?
    Perhaps PHX could get some.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Anonymous.

  11. Eric, it IS tres cool!

    From Wikipedia: "In photography, a fisheye lens is a wide-angle lens that takes in a broad, panoramic and hemispherical image. Originally developed for use in meteorology[1] to study cloud formation and called "whole-sky lenses", fisheye lenses quickly became popular in general photography for their unique, distorted appearance. They are often used by photographers shooting broad landscapes to suggest the curve of the Earth. Hemispherical photography is used for various scientific purposes to study plant canopy geometry and to calculate near-ground solar radiation."
