Baubles

I’ve fallen into the fisheye trap. There is a long-standing fascination with these lenses.

When I was a young photographer (14), my dear dad got us both into an industry show held by Canon. We borrowed a Canon F-1 New and a circular fisheye lens. We put in a film we brought along, laid the camera on the floor between us and made a father and son looking over the edge of the world double portrait. It is one of the fondest memories of my childhood.

So, look out for more pre-Christmassy baubles like these on this channel:

By the way, the Canon fisheye has turned into a Nikkor and they’re much smaller now!
