That's a treatment of the Calder I've never seen before. Nice job!

I'm also surprised you got away with photographing there. Especially lying face up. :)

I think we passed this on one of our walks when I was in Chicago. Great usage of the fish eye.

Be interesting to see what it looks like at ordinary level, can't quite make it out! But love your fish eye pics Archie and this is a good one.

I saw this one earlier today on facebook and meant to comment, but was in a hurry..
The usage of the fisheye makes this sculpture so much more interesting, esp when I'm used to seeing it the boring/usual way all the time.

I've always wondered what a 180º FoV would look like—and man, is it out of this world!

I love that statue, but hate the post office... though you've captured both quite well.

This one's really great, Archie. You've got the ground in view all around; which is hard to do!
