Paris: A Fish-eye View

I’ve spent the last few days in Paris with my mom, who came to visit, and we visited all the touristy spots. I’ve been to Paris before and have pictures of all the monuments, so this time I decided to photograph them in a different way. Here are my fish-eye lens photos:

Bogotá: A Photo Essay

I’ve been wanting to go out and take photos of Bogotá for a while now, to remember the streets that I know so well, and I finally did. Most of these photos are from the northern part of Bogotá, and therefore does not give an accurate representation of the whole city, although some of the people in the pictures can be found all over the city, such as the flower sellers and street vendors. The rest of the photos are mostly of places that I often see, or are important to me, or that I find amusing. Enjoy!
