The Lensbaby 5.8mm, 185° Circular Fisheye lets you experiment with extreme perspectives. The ability to focus 1/4 inch in front of the lens provides an extraordinary way to explore macro photography. Get close enough to a flower to nearly touch it - while capturing the entire garden surrounding it in the frame. The lens has a polished interior barrel that creates unique flare when pointed at a light source or reflects the edges of your scene around the image. There is no electronic communication between the lens and the camera body. This fisheye lens features a Canon EF mount and is optimised for APS-C sensor DSLRs and produces a smaller image circle on full frame DSLRs.

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum, opened in 1932, was once the Madrid home of this influential impressionist painter.
