Thanks for the comments. Lens was a Tokina 17-35mm f/4 at its widest angle. He was also quite tall which enhanced the wide angle distortion.

So true and well captured. Love the perspective and high angle of the sun creating the deep dark zombie shadows on the face. And, the cast of background characters is a bonus.

It's funny when you go out, that this is the common stance for lots of people they have to have their phone out in their hand looking at it all the time. A few months ago I was walking the dog, and I saw this guy walk past, as he was walking towards me I saw him check his phone about four times that was in the space of about 50 yards, he wasn't really looking at anything, i'm pretty sure it's just become an obsessive habit that he needs to look at his phone every 20 seconds just in case he misses out on something. Quite sad really!

Not only is this a great angle you took the photo at it's one of my top peeves, my pick for a ribbon.

Ps I was going to do something like this but thought this challenge would be full of images like this.
