Focal Length:50mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 7D

Staged for Shipping or Scrap

Stalked around the warehouse at lunch, fisheye in hand. There’s only so many (about three, actually) photos I can take of the floor to ceiling racking before it’s tired.  What I’ve noticed most about shooting with the fisheye is it’s really demanding of you. Anything more than a foot away from it fades into the distance and is no longer dominant in the frame. This pipe here? The two at bottom center are probably about four inches from the precious glass. If that. It’s nuts. This entire bundle of pipe is maybe two feet in diameter.

It looks like something more at home in a coral reef than a warehouse. The expansive ceiling breathes like a wave far above, the barrier between the undersea wonderland and the vastness of the gaseous atmosphere above.

Really at a loss for further words. If you need an assortment of various sizes of conduit, I can probably get you a killer price on this stuff.
