Hey, guess what! It is incredibly difficult to take a picture of oneself if one or more of the following conditions is true:
1) You’re a lousy photographer.
2) You have normal-length arms.
3) Your fancy camera has a big-ass zoom lens, thereby assuring that there is no way to get the lens a decent distance from your face.
4) Your fancy camera’s LCD display does not swivel so that it can be seen from the other side of the camera, and therefore half the pictures you take are either of the top of your head or your chin.
I promised a picture of the new specs, and I shall deliver. Too bad I can’t share a picture of my whole face, but, well, I never got one that didn’t feature freakily enlarged facial features on account of the above-mentioned issues. Not sharing those has nothing to do with my personal vanity, you understand. It’s just that I don’t want to detract from the beauty of my new glasses. That’s it.
Here they are!
What you can’t tell from this picture, because I suck, is that they are a deep plum purple. And the side pieces are all hammered and texture-y and nifty. Also, I am naked and sticking my tongue out. (Just kidding. I’m not naked.)
