Taken with my Sigma 10-20mm F/4-5.6 EX DC lens which has the extraordinary quality that it gives you a focal distance of 10mm, but still has a rectilinear projection instead of a fisheye projection. The lens is, of course, only meant to be used on a DSLR with a crop-factor of at least 1.5, and using it on a full-frame 35mm camera results in this special vignetting. This was done on purpose and I think it adds to the distance between the subject and the viewer and adds to the vintage feel of these shots.
