August…good riddance. It’s been a downer of a month. I’ve had all kinds of eye issues this month, and just haven’t felt up to getting out and taking photos. Heck, I haven’t even felt like opening my eyes! It turns out my really dry eye turned into a very nasty scratch across my cornea. Not only did it hurt like hell, but everything was so blurry in that eye that I couldn’t even think about photography.
Thankfully the eye is getting better, and I have some treatment options that seem to be working for the eyes overall (crossing fingers that continues). I still haven’t felt like going out with the camera, but maybe tonight was a sign I should start doing so again. I went for a family walk with the dogs, and when we returned home, my son said “Frog!”. Not really expecting frogs in our front driveway, I thought he was joking around or something, but then he pointed out the tiny little Chorus Frog that was hanging out on the edge of the driveway.
I’ve pretty much just tried the macro lens on insects and a few flowers, so a tiny frog was a nice option to try something new. This guy was an inch long at most, a perfect size for some macro shots. He wasn’t really in much of a mood to move or anything, so I was able to lay down on the driveway in front of him and take a wide variety of shots.
A sign perhaps, that I should get my lazy, bad-eyed self back outside and start taking photos again? Nah…I don’t believe in that kind of stuff, but ANYTHING that made me grab the camera again is a good thing.
