Optometry


We've been in such stormy weather lately. It's really making my pictures crummy. I guess that just shows you what a crummy photographer I am! :-) I cannot adapt to anything other than perfect variations of sweet sunny skies for picture taking. Ugh! Anyway, today I start my Veteran's Affairs medical appointments. First up: Optometry!

P.S. So weird! I just noticed that the Trigger Tuesday challenge over on the Moxie Fab blog just happens to have the same color palate and shabby country vibe that my card does. Even the scallops on my card look kinda like the mirror frame. So... why not play along?! Here's the provided inspiration photo:

Crummy weather or not that is a beautiful card. Hoping you have some beautiful sunny skies soon. Hope we all do really this has been a crazy spring!

If you need glasses, the VA will give you free ones. But, if you wear bifocals like me, in order to get the line-free ones I had to pay $90. Found a few places on line that I can get nice glasses without lines for a fraction of that price and there is a larger selection of frames.

Which lens are you using? I recently discovered the joys of a 50mm f1.8 (which is the cheapest one around, $100 or so). It works beautiful for small objects, close-ups and portraits (better with manual focus). I think it'd go great with your card pictures :)
