I’ve always liked photography, but in 2006, I fell in love with it. At that time, snapping photos—macro photos—suddenly became an uncontrollable obsession. Why, you wonder? In that year, my right retina detached twice. The eye was saved, but my vision will never again be as “good” as it was. I use macro photography to see again.
Sadly, I haven’t been taking very many photos in recent months. I now have a (rapidly growing) cataract in my right eye. Operating my camera and editing the images has become a royal pain in the arse. I will be having surgery sometime this summer, and I’m looking forward to being able to focus on the details again.
For The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge, focus.
