Something Fishy

I got a new lens. This one is a “fisheye” lens, one that distorts straight lines to get more in the picture. It’s also not officially a lens, but an accessory. It’s so small and compact, it’s sold as a body cap. That means I can put it in my bag and not notice I have it with me.

As a lens it leaves a lot to be desired, but is fun to use (in moderation). You get a lot in the picture, and not all subjects show the distortion, like the pic above. You can get a different perspective. Reds seemed to show up especially vividly, whether that’s the lens or the light, I’m not sure.
