Central Park

Monday April 21, 2014

NEW YORK NEW YORK – Spring has arrived with a clamor so I took a walk in Central Park. I have a new old lens: a Leica R 16mm fisheye which I can use on my Leica M camera (generally converting its color images to black and white). This is not a true fisheye: it doesn’t produce a circular image with a 180 degree field of view: it’s more like 150 degrees. It does preserve size relationships near the edge of the frame which means that straight lines are curved. This is very noticeable when shooting architectural subjects which have straight lines, but actually looks natural shooting rocks and trees as in the first image below. Anyway, it was a nice day so I had trouble making selections.

Day 1,649 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
