As Summer 2011 was closing out and the transition to Fall was underway, I visited the Baltimore Museum of Art on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus. It’s where I took this corner shot from inside one of the exhibits. The weather was gloomy and it had rained most of the day, which is why I decided to find something indoors. But before entering I dodged the raindrops enough to grab some shots of the courtyard near the Charles Street side of the campus.

First up is the gateway to the courtyard. When I saw the gates I knew I wanted to throw on the fisheye lens for a little fun.

Next we step into the courtyard for a wider view, looking northeast.

After shooting a few more shots the rain began to intensify so it was time to call it off and head indoors.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day! :-)

    Great choice of using the fisheye in that first shot…excellent. While the rain is a bit of a pain he glow of the wet ground and leaves makes for 2 stunningly vibrant images.

  10. Great use of the fish-eye – just love the effect on the first image. How did you manager to curve the gates but leave the concrete walls in the background almost straight?

      Moving the camera up and down just a tad while doing a live view gives a pretty good look at what’s being distorted and how severe it is. In this case, the lens gets all of the credit. I simply shot the image and that’s how it came out, nothing special on my part. :-)
