Hello there!

Welcome to my little corner of the ether. This is where you will find information about my books and musings on life and love in New York City. To stay in the loop about all things ADR...


Beauty in the Blur

I got glasses when I was in fifth grade. I remember putting them on for the first time and being shocked at how crisp the world was. Truth be told, I was also a bit disappointed. Something in little me revered the blurry edges of life before correction.

Well, it's been many years. And I wear contact lenses 90% of the time and glasses the rest of the time. But there are still those few moments in the morning when I first open my eyes and before I reach to my nightstand to fetch my specs. In those moments, the world is as it was, blurry and beautiful, friendly but full of unknowns.

And then. I put my glasses on, life sharpens, and the day begins.

I am happy to be able to slip those tiny lenses onto my eye and see it all. But I also enjoy the imperfect view of my little corner of the cosmos. Maybe this is why I kind of love blurry photos. I do not discard them all. Some are worth saving. Some are imperfect and exquisite and a bit muddy and mysterious.


Do you wear glasses or contacts? Do you have an appreciation for blurriness in life and in photos?
