I have been wearing glasses since I was a kid, so glasses have been a part of my body for so long now and I rely entirely on my glasses to get me through everyday life, losing or misplacing them is basically a very bad thing. Yes, I would not be able to write or read this post without my glasses on. I never liked glasses but it’s still much better than not being able to see at all.

I sometimes have to deal with two different worlds: the one with my glasses off and the one with my glasses on. A fuzzy one without glasses, and a crystal clear one with glasses. People tell me I look better without my glasses, and with glasses I am somebody else. Some people just seriously won’t recognise me. I don’t mind the way that I look without glasses but I love my glasses. I’ve never been embarrassed to wear them. So, my glasses are pretty much a part of my face. I live with it, and move on!

I couldn’t even tell you how many times I’ve had someone take my glasses and say “How many fingers am I holding up?! In a practical world, without my glasses, everything is a blur. Walking outside without glasses is not advisable and not fun because I won’t be able to read anything. I won’t be able to recognise people walking in front of me across the street.

Today while browsing the net I came across these paintings of a South African artist Philip Barlow. Philip Barlow’s blurry renditions of a crowded city really resonate with me. Blurry, hazy, but definitely a familiar sight. Identically this how the world looks to me without my glasses.

Anyone could easily mistake these intriguing images as blurred photographs of city life on a summer’s day. They are in fact beautiful oil paintings, which form part of a series entitled The City by South African artist Philip Barlow.

      That was my first impression too 🙂 Amazing paintings, at first I thought it was just a play on the focus of a digital camera! Thank you for visiting my blog! I wish you a wonderful week filled with love, joy and peace.

      It’s good to know that I’m not the only one to find those beautiful oil paintings so familiar and at the same time so funny 🙂 You know as the saying goes misery needs company 🙂
