Title: MCA Stairs

Capture Date/Time: October 26 2004 18:36
Camera: Nikon D100
Lens: 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye-Nikkor
Focal Length: 10.5mm
Aperture/Shutter Speed: F/7.1 - 1/60sec
ISO: 400
Flash: None

Some nice work from Allison Woo over at www.ohcamerasaremacho.com inspired me to take this one over at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Although I have been there several times, I've never taken photos there since they have rules that you cannot photograph any of the artwork there, just the building/architecture itself, and the large installation in the main lobby consisting of thosands of pencils. Since the MCA is right by where I work, I decided to swing by there and do my own take on the staircase.

Wow that fisheye really distorted these stairs in an interesting way. Very cool image.

Archie, for the first of my "illustrations" on your photographs - I did one on the giant Ferris Wheel - check here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/naina/1079452/ - I was unable to make the centre of the wheel very well so I hid it with the text and the box!

This snap is amazing Archie! I wish I could see the stairs just to get a clearer grasp of the picture.
