Photo of the Week #252
The curved-line look of fisheye lens photos can turn gimmicky quick, but sometimes it’s just the right tool for capturing the whole scene in tight quarters, like for this shot from last week’s Cycle for Survival ride at Equinox in Bethesda, Maryland. The event was one of dozens in cities across the US over the past couple months, collectively raising nearly $30 million for rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City. Since its founding in 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised over $100 million, directly funding clinical trials and research studies that bring new hope to countless lives touched by rare cancers.
