Glasses

Small Hand, Big Mouse

I know it is not yet time for my monthly picture of Chong Chong, but I really like this picture and want to share it. 😉

He’s standing quite well (almost walking), and loves reaching up to “use” my mouse and keyboard. A simply wonderful distraction when I’m working at home.


The shot was taken with my DMC-GX7. I would’ve preferred to have crisper focus on his hand, but I think the softness might help to convey a sense of movement (and, well, if he’s awake, he’s moving). A fair amount of cropping and straightening, with increases in contrast and clarity, and large decreases in highlights and shadows. I also took the liberty of removing some scratches from my desktop, thankyouverymuch.

Oh, and I like how the keyboard and glasses help to frame the shot.

New Glasses

I got a prescription filled for a couple new pairs of glasses at Daming Optical.

There was something about this contraption…

that had me visualizing this one.

Then again, it might’ve just been my exposure to the movie at an early age that brought this about.
