Perfect clarity

I like to be able to see what I’m doing.  Whether I’m watching a film, exploring a new city, or simply taking in the view from the top of a mountain.

But I’ve always done these activities wearing glasses… for about the past 10 years in fact.  Well, not anymore!  Thanks to laser eye surgery I can finally ditch the glasses!  So this photo is part-celebration, but also a nod to a pair of trusty specs that have seen me through some adventures.

This photoshoot was a tortured affair, taking almost two hours to nail the final shot.  With the glasses being, of course, transparent, I settled for focussing on my hand which was in the same focal plane as the glasses.  This (mercifully) rendered them in focus too.  I’m going to have to practise more at setups where I’m both in the shot, and taking it!
