Focus On Life 2014!




Week Three: B&W Self Portrait


Sorry to be a downer this week, but unfortunately it can't be avoided.
Listing the reasons:

1) Somehow managed to get a fungus infection, which spread to my eyes. Probably because I did what we all tell the kids not to do(don't touch your eyes).

2) Said eyes are so red they would make Dracula's pale in comparison.

3) Even if you say, so what, we want to see your face, no can do. I can't focus the camera, take the shot, or edit it appropriately with only one eye working right.

4) So you know I'm not kidding I am typing this at 200 zoom magnification, just so I can see it.

Time to go put the hourly eye-drops in my eyes, but I'll see you again next week.



Now please take some time to visit the others in this weekly blog hop at: The Studio Sublime.

  7. Well you picked a clever little substitute to take your place. Eye problems are no fun, especially for us crafty types. Hope it gets better soon.

  11. Oh, eye infections suck. I have had many due to allergic reactions to make-up and also from getting silver dust or pearl dust in them from filing or drilling. My doc got so tired of me running in saying "I have 'pink-eye' again" that last time she scolded me rather harshly and said, "NO you don't! And quit touching/scratching your eyes w/metal dust on your fingers or you're gonna loose your sight! Not to mention what it does to the skin around your eyes!" Lesson learned. :-) Hope you feel better and recover soon!!
