2-9-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie # 2

I was told I looked like a ghost in the last selfie I posted (here ) for the challenge. So I went back into the vaults and pulled out this one from the day I got my new glasses.

I think they look good, don’t you?

1-1-13 (Cont) Looking At The World Through Different Lenses

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Went to the eye doctor today. Had been feeling like I needed a new prescription especially on the close vision. Well, I most certainly do need new glasses. My near vision has moved the visual equivalent of a full f/stop but my distance vision has only deteriorated slightly.  So I am trying to slide by with new reading glasses.

Funny thing. I had shot many pictures on the 1st which I had already looked at and rated for focus, exposure, framing and so on.  Looked through them again with the new glasses.  Now sometimes I want tight focus and sometimes I want soft but Uh oh! It seems that I have been rejecting shots that I believed they were not crisply in focus that actually had perfectly tight focus. Conversely  some shots I thought were nice tight focus are actually soft.  I wonder if discovering 20/20 vision again will change the work I produce?
