If you are using a lens that creates a lot of distortion, you can minimize its effect by placing your main subject dead center in your frame. You can see that the Flatiron Building here stands straight, while the buildings to th eleft and right, as well as the lamp post, all lean in to the center.
I hope you all had a relaxing and blessed Thanksgiving weekend. This year the calendar falls such that today is the first Sunday of Advent in most Western Christian churches, so we officially turn our thoughts towards the beginning of a new church year, and Christmas. For Catholics such as myself, today is also the first Sunday to use a new English translation of the Mass. It has not been updated since it was first translated after Vatican II arounf 1970, so the change will take a bit of getting used to. For someone lik eme, who has only the foggiest memorins of Latin Mass as a child, this is the only Mass I’ve ever known and I will probably misspeak a few times, but I’m looking forward to it.
