Going wide


“When you reach for the stars, you are reaching for the farthest thing out there. When you reach deep into yourself, it is the same thing, but in the opposite direction. If you reach in both directions, you will have spanned the universe.”
Vera Nazarian

The above image is taken with an 8 mm fisheye lens.

It covered the entire floor and the roof and side arches of the Church, not possible with a general wide angle lens (above 14 mm)

The image below is a panoramic view. Taken in full circle (I guess 360º)


Photography is a lovely subject and I wish people use it more often, not the type we take with cell phones, but with regular cameras either DSLR or Mirrorless ones, where one can have more control and be creative.

A word of caution

True photography is a costly affair and please do not land into ‘G A S’ – Gear Acquisition Syndrome’ and I was a victim, learnt the lesson a bit late.

Why don’t you take part in various photo challenges in WP, if you are into photography?

Yes, my friend, it’s one way of relaxing and at the same time keeps one engaged. Of course one must have sufficient time and genuinely interested in photography.

This post is part of Pattimoed’s LAPC # 165 –GOING WIDE photo challenge.

The challenge is hosted by 4 wonderful people who keep us busy and innovative with their fantastic photo challenges.

For future challenges follow one or all of these four moderators

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

And my post is incomplete if I don’t mention Cee Neuner whose Cee’s Photo challenges- And teaching the art of composition for photography makes us realise the potential in photography. We are immensely benefited from her teachings.

She is a visionary and you can check her interview with Marsha, a versatile blogger here  (Why Cee Neuner Has Successfully Hosted Photo Challenges for Twelve Years)

Cee Neuner helping most of the photographers with her regular challenge series giving us all the encouragement and inspiration.

We are grateful to all.

We are also thankful to many photography bloggers who are running successful photo challenges.

It’s been a pleasure and a wonderful experience being a part of the team.

And thanks to WP, without its presence I would not have dreamed to be a blogger.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Love your experimenting! Well done. My son has a fisheye lens too, and sometimes I play around with it. You should have fun with photography, and I can see you have!

    What great wide shots! And a cathedral is one place I wish I had a fisheye lens! Perfect.

      Couldn’t agree more my friends
      Yes. Cathedrals are huge and none of the wide angle lenses do justice.
      Fisheye lens does the perfect job
      The problem with fish lenses is one must angle it properly otherwise there is too much of distortion.
      Thank you so much my friends
