2018—Oh, the Possibilities!

Yesterday was my birthday and my birthday present to myself was…surprise… a new lens.  But not just any lens.  It’s Nikon’s 8-15mm Fisheye lens.  It has a 180° field of view and focuses 6 inches away from the subject.  Oh, the possibilities!  At 8mm, it creates a circle of wonderment.  At 15mm, it doesn’t create a circle but the creative possibilities are endless.  When it arrived yesterday, I didn’t get a chance to try it.  But first thing this morning, I was out in my garden testing it out.  Here are two 8mm shots from my garden.
