more fun with fisheye

Playing with my new fisheye lens has prompted me to cull through some of my older fisheye photos for comparison. My first fisheye lens was a 30mm Arsat for the Kiev 88 medium format camera. It was a heavy beast that I bought at the factory in Kiev and carried on my trans-siberian railroad trip in 1999. The lens was sharp enough, but the camera body was unreliable (it frequently failed to advance the film, causing unintended multiple exposures). I also had opportunity to use a 16mm Nikkor fisheye lens that belonged to NYU. I took this photo with a Nikon F100 and the borrowed lens at the terminus of the 7 train in Queens, New York (right next to Shea Stadium). Available light shot was handheld with Kodak film pushed to ISO 3200 (processed with D-76, as I recall–I decided the following year to use only HC-110).
