Mr. Fisheye strikes again. Another from Saturday’s visit to Paxico’s grain elevator. I thought since everyone is getting tired of the prettiness of Spring, I’d throw out a couple more dark and ugly shots. This other one is from the junk pile out behind the Paxico stove guy’s shop (I think his name is Bud).

  1. What IS that thing, a trap door or cistern? I really like the shot, great HUGE foreground!


  2. I think your cool little fisheye needs to get lost in my photo bag. I dig the BW conversion and the funky view. It kind of looks like a big concrete fish that is very hungry.


  3. Bruce: I’m not sure what it is. It’s a circular concrete pad – maybe an old foundation for a silo? The “trench” forms a square inside the circle with a channel that leads to the edge. Some kind of drainage system, I suppose. Short answer: I dunno.

    Doug: Should I LoJack my fisheye before Durango?

    Thanks, ‘dudes!

  4. This is great, Mike. Definitely a thoughtful way to use a fisheye.
