What do you have eBay to thank for?
I always scour eBay for photography bargains, and chuck silly bids on stuff I would like if I got it for the right price. I found a lens on Ebay, brand new in the box, used a couple of times, it was a wide angle lens, not something I have ever wanted, nor did I think I wanted. So I made a low ball offer… and would you know it, the seller accepted it! I thought to myself, I will just re-list it and make a couple of hundred bucks.
When I received it I had to try it out first… you know, before I re-listed it on eBay… it only took a couple of shots for me to realise what a cracker of a lens it was… and how much fun a wide angle lens is! So you guessed it… it never got re-listed and now lives on my camera 90% of the time!
So I have eBay to thank for helping me discover photography with an UWA (Ultra Wide Angle) lens!
the daily pic – Cell A24
Here’s a pic, that without an UWA lens you wouldn’t get much detail into your shot. This is cell A24 in Fremantle Prison. The walls in this cell were painted between 1988 and 1991. Prison rules didn’t allow inmates to deface their cell walls but this prisoner was given special permission for therapeutic reasons.
