10/04/09 78 W, 2 I - + 13 - 9 Distortion

Simple example of lens distortion from Morrisville Fire Prevention Day yesterday. Canon Digital Rebel XT using 17-40mm lens. Top photo shows focal length of 26mm. Bottom photo shows focal length of 17mm. As the lens shoots wider, the pumper's rear grows larger. However, the shots are not entirely apples to apples. Mr. Blogger stepped forward a few feet, before shooting the second photo. 

I think only you and maybe Lee really cares about this post, but thanks for the info!! Just kidding!

Thats kinda weird how even though you stepped closer and the back of the Engine got larger the Ladder seems to have gotten smaller.
