Wide Angle Vision

I've had a run of bad luck lately. My new fancy great camera boinked and got sent away to Canon Hospital along with my photo mojo, blogging mojo, woking mojo, and all those other mojos.

And I cought a nasty case of conjunctivitis from Little Man. The worst part of pink eye: Glasses!

I HATE GLASSES! (yes, I had to yell).

In a moment of school marmish sensibility a couple of years ago I was farsighted (pun intended, although I am near sighted) enough to but some new glasses. Just in case. I can tell you that I've worn those glasses more in the last three days than I have in the last two years.

Glasses make me feel like I see through a wide angle lens all the time. And everything is too sharp. So sharp it gives everything a blue edge, almost like an over exposed camera. And for some reason they bend the walls (much like a fish eye lens). It makes me dizzy, irritable and completely distant.

I normally wear contacts that I put in on the first of the month and jank out a month later, only to replace them with a new pair. But now all my normalsies are suddenly hard work. Seeing the soap in the shower. Glasses fogging up when I go out in the cold. Banging the glasses into both Big and Little Man.

Fortunately my eye looks less red today, and seems to be on the mend. And those glasses. They are going into that same hole I dug them out of since my attack of sensibility two years ago. Rant over.


  1. I've tried the 30-day contacts, but can't manage them. I get too scratchy and sore. I've tried two week ones, but they have to come out daily, and they tear. So it's glasses quite a lot of the time for me.

  2. I had conjunctivitis last year and it was horrid, so you have my deepest sympathies. Rinse your eye as often as you can bear it in salt water, and you'll be back in your lenses in no time. (I'm a monthly lens wearer too - they're ace!!) xxx

  3. sorry to hear...but i bet you feel better after that rant :)
    you take care, love this shot btw
