I think the ruin is recoiling from the din, wishing it could have ear defenders too.

Very nice, Moira.

The lens suits the shot. Foreground, gardener and ruins all included. I do like wide angle shots although I don't have a fish eye lens which I'm tempted to buy when I see these!

One man went to mow...........
Nicely taken without too much distortion, and excellent in b&w

A lot of lawn to mow with this small mower, or is the fish-eye making it look larger that it is? Good capture, and I must dust-off my lens and give it an airing again!

I definitely wanted to create a relationship, though that's not precisely what I had in mind...

For once the fisheye tells the truth, there's a lot of grass to mow.
Thanks folks and good day to ye all.

The fisheye really makes architecture look spooky. Especially in mono. A well composed image Moira.

Great shot Moira. All that time he spent getting the lines straight
and you've gone and bent them...Tut tut. Smile

He looks to be having fun too with his mower! 😁 Certainly plenty of grass to go at 😃 Loving the fisheye again... 👍

Oh these modern contraptions. A push mower is what's needed. I used to love the sound they made.
