Fish-eye Fantasy - When the Camera Makes Dreams

It was a day to discover the unknown. My assistant and I were traveling along a busy highway when I caught site of an abandoned property, by the looks of it desolated for half a lifetime. Sagging roofs of overgrown shacks and black staring windows half-hidden among trees and shrubs. And yet people once lived and worked and played there. All gone. Forgotten by all but the mind of the dreamer.

Some landscape photos can be more than yet another rolling hillside. In the late autumn when the world falls asleep every view can be tainted by the mysteries commanding the finger that opens the shutter. And a fish-eye lens, such as the one used here, is a great way to give a panorama that extra touch of the alien.

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.
