Mango Green Tea with Lychee Jelly: 4.5/5 Stars      |     ISCO Cinemascope Ultra Star

I want to thank Jenny for joining me as I took a dip in the fountain of youth that is my old college town, Athens, GA. There aren’t many things that I enjoy more than testing a lens, and by that I mean hopping in the car with music, a general photo location, and of course snacks along the way.

Today I got to practice a new photo technique, played Frisbee on North Campus lawn, and ate a burger and fries with a gorgeous friend while discussing crazy Game of Thrones fan theories and lore.  😀

Sesame Balls: 3.5/5

I set the intervalometer (fancy word for timelapse) on the camera and it managed to take a few interesting shots!  Frisbee is pretty much what I did every day between classes.  It brings friends and new people together in this technological age of loneliness!

I’ve had that Frisbee for over 15 years I think! It’s floppy but still flies great.

This was me setting up the camera.

Nothing fancy for dinner, but it was nice to escape the muggy Athens heat in the air conditioning of Five Guys. Their French fries are still my favorite. Apologies for the low quality food pictures, we were hungry. Fries: 5/5 Hamburger (All the way, no mayo, add jalapenos: 4.5/5)

I also managed to take a few non anamorphic photos.  One of my favorites.  It was blazing hot in Athens as usual.  Thanks to the Athens Botanical Garden for being such a good (and free!) place for students and photographers.

Why an anamorphic lens, you ask?  Because it can produce an image/movie that is the same aspect ratio of all my favorite movies. 2.39:1  The images when corrected and edited (since I’m basically free lensing it right now) fit the 21:9 monitor I use quite nicely.  More to come!
