365 - take 2 - 340


There is only one world; the world pressing against you at this minute. There is only one minute in which you are alive; this minute here and now. The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an unrepeatable miracle.

365 - take 2 - 340

As usual I took myself off into town this lunchtime - usually for an aimless potter and often taking in a few charity shops en route.

Today I took the little Olympus with me as I wanted to have an experiment with the fisheye. I cut a piece of floppy disk, carefully attached it to the back of the lens and then popped it on the body. The aim being today was to get a long long exposure which, hopefully, would render all the people in town invisible. It more or less worked although of course a few people were standing still but it was pretty chocca in that part of town and most of them have disappeared from view Smile

Needless to say shooting through a piece of floppy means that it's not going to render a nice sharp image but as you can't get ND filters for fisheye lenses (presumably) then it made an entertaining alternative.

oh - it was a 10 second exposure by the way Smile

Resting on one of those green phone company (presumably) boxes that are dotted around town. Sadly they have sloping tops so the pic was a bit on the wonk Smile
