These are my first glasses ever, acquired at age 43. OK, that's not exactly correct, I had a pair for close-up work, that I got when I was pregnant and my eyesight seemed to suddenly go bonkers. But those were just for occasional use, for needlepoint and such, and these new glasses are to wear most of the time. They're not very strong, but I'd been blessed with great eyesight and it has steadily degraded with age (ah! like so many things!) so that I found myself squinting most of the time. I was pretty excited to get these, to be able to see well again.
This is a good self-portrait of my camera, not so much of me. I can't get the hang of taking pictures of myself in the mirror. What was I looking at and why do I look so glum and serious?
