Without My Glasses

Karen Walrond of The Beauty of Different fame has nudged me one step closer to looking at my near-sighted ness as a gift, a unique perspective. Plenty of sharp-eyed artists of fame have reached the same conclusion. Imagine Monet's Water Lillies with perfect vision. Much more work.

So for this photo I took out my contacts and left my glasses on the cake pedestal. It was an in-focus shot but in editing I chose to soften many of the edges but not all to give the feeling of not being able to see clearly, moving in for better sight and then back out again for the whole.
