After a week of toiling in Carinthia I’m back to Vienna. It’s interesting to be on the streets again. One would think that a mere week can’t possibly make a difference, but, believe me, it can.
Unfortunately the joy was marred by the fact that I had some problem with my right contact lens. I had probably got something into the eye, it happens at times, especially with wind on the streets, and normally this goes away all by itself. This time I may not have had enough sleep the night before (which makes the eyes rather dry), or it may just have been bad luck, whatever, instead of stopping it got worse. I finally had to leave work early.
When I came out into the streets, it did not exactly help. The wind made the pain unbearable, and I had to go to an optician to buy a lens case and some lens fluid. I removed the right lens, stowed it away and then went home.
It’s funny, just at that day I had read an article about the “leading eye” and how many left-eyed photographers are trained to use their right eye (sorry, can’t remember where, it was a link on some of the 80+ sites that I currently follow, but not one of those sites itself). Now, my leading eye is the right, the one that was now practically useless, or maybe I should say blind at 7.5 diopters. Thus all the images that you see here were shot left-eyed 🙂
