So first thing this morning, my RSS reader picks up an aricle from Boing Boing which leads to here, which leads to here. Might as well skip the first two links, and go to the end, which tells you all about how to turn a $10 security peephole from Home Depot into an inexpensive fisheye lens. Real ones go for hundreds of dollars.

So I just had to go to Home Depot after work and try it out. Best picture I have so far:

Hopefully, more to come soon.

    Cool pics, thanks for sharing! I’ve still got to practice with it a bit, and construct a better contraption for keeping the fisheye centered over my lens barrel.

    Hey, Drewbert, you actually have a great excuse for a blog ;-), I love the idea and the photo! Your cat looks like our Jaffa, and looks very regal in the photo.

    PS: I was googling fisheye photos and stumbled upon your image. Nice surprise.

    Hee, thanks :) I haven’t quite lived up to the promise of posting more fisheye pics here, have I? Ah well. I tend slightly towards procrastination…

    Enjoyed looking around your site. Impressive work!
