One usually accepts the distortion of a wide angle lens for the effect that it produces and also tries to get something in the foreground.
I was in a tired mood when I first uploaded these images and trashed most of them. I shouldn't do that.
When I went back to the ones that I kept, I decided to process them in black and white. Or almost b&w because I decided to let a little tinge of colour show through. This actually makes this set of images look more sepia.
I processed the images as a set, using almost identical processing on each.

|Ye Olde Lantern|
At first, I hadn't included the next photo, but then I had a second thought. It also focuses on the lantern but in horizontal (or landscape) mode. When all is said and done, I think I like this version better. Not that I will claim a prize for any of these, but in the end, I had fun with this set..
