Last April, when I was in Austin, I blogged this photograph of a colored lamp in front of a convex mirror:
I got more comments on that photograph, and lots of people asked me what the store was. I couldn't remember. But I made a point of figuring it out when I was back in Austin last weekend. The store is Maya:
The round light isn't there, but the beautiful convex mirror is, along with some new, but similar lights:
Here's the Maya website, and I think they'll help you find that round light if you want. Ah! Here it is.
Me, I'm in love with the mirror. It's expensive — over $1800 — but as I thought about possibly buying it, I realized what I wanted if for was to take pictures, and therefore what I really should buy is a fisheye lens for my Nikon D50.
ADDED: Is this the fisheye lens I need? Tell me, camera nerds. You know I love distortion, and the question — as always — is: Just how much bloggable fun can I possibly have?
