    This office window faces a large internal atrium with a huge skylight. The plant is working its way through the blinds to the light. I'm just standing in the corridor a few feet away, which is why these blinds are never open.

    The front of Granny's watch, with the mend that was probably made before I was born. It's a trick of the light that makes the bird look like it has a stone set in its eye.

    Angry Orchard

    Angry Orchard is the name of a brewer of hard apple cider from America's 'heartland', aka Cincinnati, Ohio, whose cider bottles feature beautiul and inventive artwork. But I was looking at the bottles from a slightly different point of view.......from directly above.

    Nice photo! Good cider! They serve it several places around here (N. Central Illinois). How did you get width of field like that? Tilt-shift?

    The visual effect is a combination of two things - first is the extreme wide angle FOV/field-of-view - on my little Lumix LX7 it actually can zoom out to the equivalent of a 24mm lens, which is definitely on the wide side. So looking down on these bottles, it gives a slighty exaggerated and much wider-than-normal feeling. The second is using an in-camera 'creative filter' effect (Panasonic's answer to Olympus's in-camera 'Art Filters') - in this case, Panasonic calls it a 'Miniature' effect, but basically what it does is to defocus peripheral areas while keeping the main focus point quite sharp - which creates a diorama-like effect. (In fact, Olympus calls their similar filter a 'Diorama'.) I've gotten to be quite fond of it, especially with some wide angle lenses.
