Art attack at the horticultural show

600_9687-e_w Two weeks ago I was at a horticulture or gardening show. One stand offered garden sculptures. I guess, everyone knows about such sculptures to set up in the garden. But these were very interesting for me. Each one need about 1 m² for setup.

Both photos are shot using a very special lens, called fisheye. This lens has a special feature to show everything at a range of 180°. But, it has a strong distortion in case you’re tilting the camera and move the horizon from the middle up or down. You can easily see, I tilted the camera upwards in both photos, but the tilting angle for the spider was less than for the mantis in the photo above.

600_9691-e_wPhotographing these sculptures from an usual point of view is much more than looking in a catalog. Using the fisheye lens and photographing upwards brings you more in the creepy situation like another insect would experience the attack of one of these dangerous predators.

I don’t wanna frighten you. Enjoy the photos and

Take care!

      Das ist bei uns ähnlich. Mein Frau bekommt die ganzen Mücken ab und mich lassen sie in Ruhe. Dabei sind das doch eh nur die Weibchen, die Blut saugen.
