I spent some time down in the Seaholm area of downtown Austin yesterday afternoon and got a chance to play with a new toy, the Rokinon 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye lens.

The results are really impressive given that it sells for just over $200.
This scene is on 3rd Street just north of the new Central Library. The street is pedestrianized and this old tressle bridge has been left over Shoal Creek with a new pedestrian bridge running alongside it.
On a completely unrelated note, this blog turned 10 years old last weekend. The first posting was on February 15th, 2009 and this is now the 3100th picture I’ve added.
