A L ~

This was taken with a Pentax Optio S40. Over the years I bought way too many little point-and-shoot cameras because I thought I would always carry them with me. That didn’t turn out to be the case. I still have the Optio, although I haven’t used it in years and its LCD screen is about the size of a postage stamp, because it has a sharp little lens and I took some favorite photographs with it. I did nothing to this photo other than a touch of sharpening and a smidge of extra saturation.

Two perspectives ~

The top photo, of a brick facade in downtown Paducah, Ky., is the original. The second one is with Photoshop’s anti-distortion feature applied (inexpertly). Not that either one of these photos is particularly good, but I’m not sure I prefer the “fixed” version, which I gather mimics the effect of a shift-tilt lens. Canon PowerShot S40.
