Here is one from earlier last fall. The City of Windsor, Ontario is developing quite a name for itself for its Sculpture Gardens. This is an extreme perspective shot with a wide-angle lens at about 4 inches. Skies courtesy of KBD Perfect Skies. Frame by Bud's Frames.

Comments are welcome.

Neat perspecitve. I'm thinking some day of investing in a wide angle lens. What lens did you use for this shot?

Thanks Joe;

This was shot with a Kodak DX6490 and the lens is the0.7 wide angle manufactured by Schneider. It has 55mm threads, so with an appropriate adaptor it may fit your camera as well. The lens cost about $150 CDN.

Thanks again.

The elephant... or the lens??? :-)The elephant is between ½ and ¾ life-size. It's quite an impressive sculpture. The lens is quite a nice piece of glass too. From front to back it is about 3½ inches. The buisiness end of the lens is about 4 inches across. What I like about the lens is the incredible depth of field. It seems to pull just about anything into focus.

I hope this answers your question(s).

Regards,
