Fish eye view - working the new gadgets

Walking across to the Arts this afternoon on my way to see "Chess", I noticed something up on the roof.  It was an "environmental art installation", called KAERU.  I'm not sure what it all means, but it was very intricate and pretty.

I took the opportunity to try out my new lens on my iphone camera.  The fish eye is great fun.  Here's a sample.

This photo  of the path to Kaeru (above) was taken using the wide angle lens.

These photos (above & right) was taken using the fish eye.  The overcast sky (and filters I've applied using Instagram) makes this look like the moon is looming very full.  Otherworldly.
With the instagram filter applied (right) I like the way the foreground is in colour, superimposed against a black and white background.

The photo above looks like it is taken from the silk of a giant spider web, strung between city buildings.

I'll experiment with the Holga tomorrow.
