when i was seven i started wearing glasses. when contacs first came out, i tried the hard ones but couldn't handle them. when i was 30 my gf at the time got me soft ones, and i've been free ever since. it's really not a vanity thing for me. i like peripheral vision. i like to be able to see when i'm swimming. i like to be able to see when i get up at night (i wear extended wear disposeables), and my nose is too small to hold up glasses, so i was perpetually pushing them up. when i first got contacs i kept pushing up the glasses that were no longer there. anyway, it frustrated me no end when i found i suddenly had to wear reading glasses along with my contacs last year. the price of aging, i guess. today i got bifocal contacs, so i am free again!
can you say new camera? :) this is with a flash and no tripod. i can't wait to see what it will do with a tripod and in good light. the colors and resolution already kick proverbial ass compared to what i was getting before. lique! i can't wait til you finish the site! I'll be updating the paintings pronto!
i know, it's upside down. i'll redo it tomorrow when i have good light, so check back :)
imagine that you had a super high resolution telescope and you focused on a planet 10 light years away. on that planet was a perfect and very large mirror pointing back at us. if you were able to filter out all the noise, you could look back into our past 20 years.
