Fortunately, a group of artists transformed a rather neglected area north of the Han River, called Ihwa, into a mural art village: A perfect place to get lost on a Saturday afternoon.

Taking Fun Fisheye Snapshots with the NX Mini

Some of the most playful photos are taken with a wide angle lens. A Fisheye lens offers an extreme version of a wide angle that can distort your photos in a fun and abstract way.
