pelle and the rumpelf impersonator
Got myself some nifty new lenses for the iPhone -
the fitting still needs tweaking since the lenses somehow don't seem to fit the iPhone design as well as one would expect and think... Think it should be reasonably easy to solve the issue though, will get back on that -
played around with them a bit in poor light last evening. The fisheye-lens was a huge hit, we laughed until we cried and very close to, I dare say, wet ourselves. Fisheyeing really brings out the be... worst in you. I made a colour version of this one photo of me (yes really), but I look more than a tad tipsy rumpelf, more of a mad blotto gnome. Thus I fear it'd give you nightmares for months, at least, ahead. Black-white it is. Fell free to laugh. I'm sure we will have much fun together, me and fisheye ~
Here's a clip from the Swedish movie based on the Astrid Lindgren book "Ronja Rövardotter" (Ronia, the robber's daughter) where the little "rumpnissar" (literally "rump elves") first appear. I've searched in vain for the translation used for "rumpnisse" (sing.) and I don't have the Ronja-book in English, so rumpelf it is.
