Computer Glasses

If my house became an architectural dig, the most common artifact would be glasses. Specifically, the kind that people of a certain age refer to as cheaters.

I wear regular glasses that are of the progressive type. They work fine, but for reading they’re subpar.

That’s why there are reading glasses scattered everywhere.

Coat pockets, side tables, and sofa arms. Every car has at least one pair. Even my spin bike has its own optical enhancement.

There is one exception to my cheaters. This is the most important pair in the inventory. I’m talking about my computer glasses. They never leave my office. Without them, my work grinds to a halt.

While photographing an artist in her design studio, I noticed that she sees things the way I do.

Her computer glasses were on and off a couple of times as we paused the session to look at something on her monitor.
