The Exclusive Club

The workplace tour continues today with a showing of my dear cube. Well, two walls and a copy machine really. The copy machine guarantees frequent interaction with co-workers. Also one of my secrets is hereto exposed – the message that has been taped to the top of the cube walls since early on. It reads “YOU ARE AT LEAST SIX FEET TALL,” and considering the walls are indeed six feet tall, you would only ever see it if you towered above. A few people have seen it. Most of my co-workers are not six feet tall.

Like yesterday’s photo, this was a very quick and unstudied grab of an image. It was a “I bet this’ll do something interesting given what little I know about the fisheye lens.” Hardly cold and calculated. But still visually interesting, and something to learn from for me.

Having never really studied professionally done fisheye work, I’m a bit afraid that I may fall in to making stereotypical work. The stuff that looks good just because it exploits the fisheye, but without really being unique in any way. A minor fear. I think I’ll be able to conjure up some goodness. I hope.

  1. Awesomeness! I’m looking forward to seeing more fisheye photos! Also, your cubicle makes a pretty nice looking “V.”
