I've visited the island of Majorca most years since I was about 7 years old. I reckon I've been there about 28 times now and still love the place. One of the great features is the abundance of old towns and villages with their picturesque narrow streets and wall climbing flowers. I chose to capture these streets using my Samyang 8mm Fisheye lens as I really like the warped effect it give the walls on either side of the frame and also it's ability to capture the scene in 180 degrees.
