Week 28: Surprise

I knew I wanted a face in my photo this week.  I just didn’t have many faces to choose from.  And I ended up using my own.  You’ll forgive me, right?

Here is my surprise:

Week 28: Surprise

The surprise, besides my big o’ eyes as wide as they can possibly get, were my glasses.  My eyes started acting up again last week and I had to ditch my brand new pair of contacts and bust out the glasses for a few days.  Until my eyes get better and are no longer red, itchy and annoying.  Boo to my eyes.

I know that this isn’t the first time Challengers have seen the “view through the glasses,” but I really wanted to try it for myself.  On myself.  I’m here to tell you that it was harder than I thought it would be.  Getting the camera to focus on the glass – not the frame, not my hands, not my face – was not an easy task.  It took several tries [maybe over 60] but I used my handy little remote [that I’m in love with now].

You need to check out the WPC Flickr Group – so many clever photographers over there.  And if you need some mid-afternoon reading, visit the Challenger Roll and see what other challengers are writing about.

On to week 29.  Our next subject for the challenge will be ORANGE.  Excellent… a color challenge this week.  Good luck finding something orange!  And as always, happy snapping!

omawarisan - Was it tough to get it lined up on your eyes?

Brooke - Lining it up? No. Trying to get the camera focus where it needed to? Yes. The dogs looked at me quizzically for 30 minutes while I tried to get the perfect shot.
