Warped View



Photo By Larry Kerr

As a kid with a ramp in his yard, Larry Kerr used a fisheye lens to photograph people on skateboards.

“You could get closer to the action,” he recalls, “and yet you would get all the surrounding area as well.”

Now an adult living in College Park, Kerr is still using the fisheye. But he has moved on from shooting shredders. This photo of downtown Orlando, taken from a friend’s plane, includes such familiar sights as City Hall, Lake Eola and I-4. The distortions of the lens give the landmarks an unusually playful appearance, almost as if they were part of a cartoon town.

“I always love a fisheye lens,” says Kerr. “It just works for me.”
