A building nearby a pier in Toronto resembling a smiling face

This smiling faces contribution is a highly creative fish-eye shot of an old building that is rendered & composed resembling a smile near a pier in Toronto.

Late one night on a pier in Toronto, I used a metal pole to balance my waterproof point and shoot for a timed photo. As the flash went off, it fell down the inside of the pole a solid 10 feet. The next day was spent trying to retrieve it with a variety of ropes, hooks and other makeshift-claws. In the end, I never got the camera back, but on the walk home alongside the beach I stumbled upon this old building. My fisheye lens created the smile and the building took care of the rest.

What lens/camera set up did you use for this shot? That’s a crazy curve, but there’s none at the top of the frame. Nice composition.
