New York City Through a Prism

Today I took a walk through the city, but with a different view.  A few weeks ago, I had ordered a set of prisms online.  Wedding photographers have started using prisms to add an abstract edge to their photos and enhancing the bokeh.  While I tried the look at my last wedding, the small prism and large lens of my camera made the process of getting a decent image difficult.  I kept getting my fingers in the photo, and needless to say, this did not add the right artistic touch.  To use a prism with my large DSLR will require a larger prism to cover the entire lens.  In the meantime, I thought to use my tiny prism with my cell phone.  There is no magic to using the prism: I simply held it in front of the lens and moved the prism around until I got the look that I wanted.  Here are the images I created today.
