There's Always Trouble in Paradise Once I Show Up

Here's one from the self portrait series I've been working on. As you can see, I am getting a shadow now, which can be quite hard to control, and I'm having a bit of difficulty with the scale. I'm looking too "big" in there (I really want myself to be more like a smaller head in a "big picture" rather than a large person standing in front of something interesting.) Anyway, I still have to work out the details, and get things setup so that I like them again. It's always hard doing these-it takes about two or three attempts to get the size and scale in proportion and then I have to fiddle with the exposure, and, by the time I've done all of that, a few days have gone by. Still I enjoy shooting them, and I have some new ideas about how to do them, so they are very much a work in progress, an experiment of sorts.

This weekend, I went to get a case for my iPhone. I have yet to figure out how to get photos off my iPhone, so this is going to be interesting. I have no way to download and, of course, there's always a limited supply of memory in the world. You know what that means, right? I'm headed for catastrophe. Wish me luck. Actually, it's a bit of a short trip and they already know me there, so, you know, I should be prepared for this journey.

It's a bit less "poke you in the eyeball with a stick" than the eyeglass shop, though not much, that catastrophe place is.

Until next time...

Hey - nice glasses! When did you get those?

Thanks, CraftyGuy!

I got them sometime last year. They are "drug store" glasses-I just went in and got the lowest number for reading glasses that I could find. I believe they are +1.0 in magnification.
