Q7 + 03 (fish-eye)
6

Trying out my new (to me) Q7 - along with the tiny (and fixed f/5.6) manual focus fish-eye (03) lens.  The subject is an ancient sedan which after sitting and rusting for years, was recently in the middle of an apocalyptic Oregon wildfire. But it's still standing!

They don't make cars with these classic lines any more.

You have to be a fan of extreme perspectives and distortion to like this lens... but fortunately I am.

It almost looks like a rusting metal dinosaur.

The Q7 digital files convert to monochrome nicely, as well.

I still can't get over how small this camera is.

A few more taken with the 03 fish-eye lens...which is really quite fun.

Look at those curving lines.

They definitely don't "make 'em like this anymore".

The focus setting on the lens was approximately at the mid-point for this close-up angle

And one taken with the Q7's built-in 'Bold Monochrome' jpeg setting, which is rather extreme---

Finally, just for fun, a close-up of my tiny Mexican Calaveras, or skeletons, sitting inside a coffee cup which also has a Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) logo---

Nice shots. That fisheye is a fun lens.Thanks for jogging my memory and inspiring me. I'll have to dig mine out and give it some exercise.
