"...and when I come to the garden ground
the whir of sober birds
up from the tangle of withered weeds
is sadder than any words"

beautiful black and white! I love the fisheye! I really like how the fence draws your eye through the frame and how the open gate invites you to enter.

This is so damn good, Sharon! Your great art combined with one of my favourite poets. Got me uop this morning & it will pull me through this day. Outstanding post, outstanding composition! Can't help but love this pearl. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

excellent mysterious adventure
Although, technically, a fish-eye is the opposite to a microscope, I always feel that it is just as forensic in the study of a moment. I feel it here.

Marvelous. The fish eye lens makes everything coalesce at the center of this garden path.
I especially enjoy the abundance of leaves layering the ground in the dappled light !

I think the lomo fish eye is really fitting for this motiv, gives it avery special look. The patterns made by the leaves on the ground is so great.

That eye of fish shows the “garden to us of the delights”. A great full photo and extraordinary B&N of intense black.

Looks like the view out of a security camera.

A wonderful B&W capture Sharon! Your use of a fisheye provides a wonderful sense of openness and the gate invites us in. Well done! ;-)

Very nice... like the carpet of leaves on the ground.

This is a very interesting treatment of this subject. There's a lot to see here.

Unique shot and sight, well done.

This looks like a scene from a b-horror-flick, where someone is lurking through the peephole of a door, waiting to grab a passer by.... Nicely done!
22 Oct 2010 2:33pm
Or how to find lines in the circle, I love this carpet of leaves like a tapestry ;)
22 Oct 2010 7:30pm

@Macrobaby: Thanks Rhonda! Yeah...down the rabbit hole ;-)
Friggin' cool! But any poet who finds birdsong sad ... is one seriously dour lad ;p.

cool fisheye, man thats alot of leaves lol
23 Oct 2010 6:15am
Like in a womb. Dead leaves & living ones still on the trees altogether. And the gate is open. So inviting. I (personally) don't see anything sad here, the light is bright, the mood so cosy especially now that i enter the house, tea & candles, a thick blanket, a dog. Love to feel back in that original round place (round place from the origins, i mean). Thanks for the feel & nice w-e, Sharon*

I love this, witch kind of lense did you used for this effect ?
23 Oct 2010 8:50am
@RORO: Thank you! It was taken with a lomo fisheye camera which is a 35mm camera.
Is it a fish eye lens? It sure gives it a very intriguing look. I also like the patterns the leaf makes on the ground.

@Frida: Thanks Frida! This is a lomo fisheye camera...a plastic film camera that I have so much fun with. There is always a kind of "freedom" I feel when I use any of my lomo cameras.
What a neat perspective. It makes this scene look kinda spooky!
23 Oct 2010 8:32pm
Awesome...simply awesome...I love it!
23 Oct 2010 8:47pm
nice wide angle shot, inviting me to the house! :)
23 Oct 2010 8:54pm
Fantastic effect, I like it very much!
24 Oct 2010 8:48am

24 Oct 2010 6:47pm

26 Oct 2010 7:59pm
Wow, this is wonderful! This looks so old. Great stuff.
27 Oct 2010 9:28pm
Great effect with your fisheye and b/w. I love the focus on the fence.
23 Nov 2010 9:53pm
Love this one. I instantly thought of Boo Radley's house in "To Kill a Mockingbird".
