Need A Special Lens Baby?

By LynneJoyce  
Starting with a seasonal message courtesy of Colleen, using one of the photos in this post, just for fun, here are my particular versions of Special Lenses. To my mind they are all around us.

The ones used here comprise the following -

Drinks glasses used in Cyprus.
Bella's coloured glasses used in the Algarve.
A bowl in the restaurant in Cyprus.
An ash tray on the balcony in my suite in Cyprus.

They are everywhere when you look and it is well worth giving them a try, though somewhat precarious trying to hold them and take a shot with a heavy camera one handed. Shutter speed priority is definitely best for this piece of precarious trickery. Still nothing ventured, nothing gained and I love the effects. There's a sneaky, soft portrait of Isabel in the set too.

As ever the exif applies to only the first shot. The rest were taken with various cameras including the new Sony I had to buy whilst in Cyprus because the hotel managed to drop all my kit (a whole new story in there but all's well that ends well) and my iPhone.

Thank you for viewing and happy new year's clicking to you all.

I will definitely have to look at things differently through the bottom of my glass when I have had a gin Lynne. An excellent trial of an idea.
