World through warming filter #85 tinted glasses

November 27, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

There are two types of items that I absolutely can not keep track of no matter how hard I try, they are sunglasses and lens caps. If I had a nickel for every time I lost one of those items, I would have enough nickels to buy a few replacements and probably piss off some retail clerks in the process.

Fortunately, I subscribe to the "Know Thyself" train of thought and I purchase replacement lenscaps in bulk from the interwebs and I refuse to purchase sunglasses that cost over $7 because I know I will lose them immediately.  (And yes, I've already checked the fridge but all I found in there was last week's potato salad and my car keys)

My latest pair of sunglasses (They cost me a whopping $1.00 and they're so stylish *cough*) have me seeing the world in a brand new light.  Literally. I'd put them somewhere around a #85 warming filter.  I get the warm fuzzies every time I try to decipher what colour a traffic light is, is it yellow, red or just sooo pretty against the sky? I feel like I'm perpetually wandering around in a utopian golden hour, it took me a moment to get used to but now I don't want to take them off. The warm light just puts me in the best moods.  Seeing the world through non-sunglassed eyes has actually become a bit of a bummer since the light is so drab and normal looking.  However, the office is a bit too hard to navigate with them on and I'm getting tired of hearing people sing Corey Hart songs at me so I save the sunglasses for those special outside situations (ie: daylight).

Normally I think my photos tend to be a bit on the cool side, I just love those chilly looking blue tones.  These new sunglasses have me thinking it might be time to thaw those photos out so I am issuing a challenge to myself - more warm toned photos. Finally, a cure to my winter season depression. There will be happy warm snow and happy warm ice in the middle of happy happy warm November. So if you see me posting too many cool toned photos this winter, tell me to snap out of it because it's too cold out for cool toned photos.
