Have just donned my glasses for the first time.

Good Lord. Things have _edges_...

Photograph or it never happened!

Edges not withstanding!

Exactly what my reaction was two years ago. Have you looked at any trees yet? That greenery round the branches is made up of lots of individual little bits.

Try not to scream and cower away from the suddenly razor-sharp edges which leap out at you as I did once in Boots the Opticians.

There should not be this may details in the world.

I remember that exact feeling!
I was only about 19, but the sudden realisation that my entire life had been viewed through the lens they used for close-ups of Marian in Robin of Sherwood came as a shock to me!

And yes, trees! Individual leaves as opposed to a homogenous mass! How weird is that... it was some time before looking at tree branches in a light breeze ceased to be profoundly hypnotic!

(The other effect I remember was that I was *convinced* everyone who saw me was looking at me and sniggering about how ridiculous I looked in glasses. They weren't, obviously, but I really felt as though they were.)
