Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

In some ways, WordPress’ weekly photo challenge for this week is an easy one for me.  The topic?  Distorted.  Since I shook with a wide angle lens, there is a type of distortion that occurs naturally.  A wide angle lens enlarges things closest to the lens and stretches them out longer the farther away from the lens you look.  I like the effect.  Here are some of my favorite examples:

Sculpture at a local landscaping center.


An antique passenger plane, seen from the rear.

    Amazing photographs! I think they fit the theme perfectly. 🙂
    I wonder. Would I you allow me to use one of these images in my Uni project? It’s an instructional piece on lenses. 🙂

  11. Gemma says:

    Great photos. Fun angle of the skyscraper. And the blue. Ahhh. Nice.

    I really like all three of them. Good examples of distortion.

  18. Maggie L R says:

    These are great photos, even if they are a bit distorted. Great for the challenge. I used to have a wide-angled lens when I used a film camera. Perhaps I need one for my Nikon D90.

  19. Cris says:

    It certainly does distort one’s perception, doesn’t it?

    Please feel free to drop by and view my interpretation of Distorted:
