Polka dots, Tiny Dogs and Fish Eye lenses

Fisheye Shoes If you know me IRL you'll know I have a bit of a thing for gadgets, particularly photography gadgets (It all started back in year 11 with my ipod touch and detachable macro/wide angle lense). As you know if you've been reading my blog, I recently acquired a new camera. True to form, one of the first things I did was become a google sleuth and find a bunch of cool gadgety thingamabobs to play with.

I ordered a few things, but the only thing I had time to play with this afternoon was the detachable fisheye lens. Basically it's an extra thing which you can screw onto the end of any lens (providing you have the right thread converter) to make in into a fisheye. It works particularly well with a wide angle lens, as it creates the full circular distortion which the fisheye is known for.

The fisheye addon is in no way professional quality, but boy is it fun. It gives that super duper "too wide" view of the world in only the way a fisheye can. It was also super cheap, which is good. If you're looking for a fisheye lens to have fun with that's super cheap, I highly recommend this lens :D

On a more fashion-y note, it's interesting how different people interpret  "matching" and "clashing". I personally would consider this outfit "clashing" in a "cohesive" kind of way (ie, there's a lot of stuff going on, but it's united by pattern theme and colour scheme) One of my students today commented  on how they loved how "matching" my outfit was. And I mean I suppose in some way it is, but it definitely isn't by mainstream fashion standards.

(I feel like I shouldn't have to say this, but todays post has been a little "review"-y today. I wasn't sponsored by the maker of the fisheye or photojojo to say anything about the thing. I just did it cause it's a fun photography toy)
