I mistreat lenses and go through them like tissues. This one is a 35mm – kinda tighter than I prefer, and I can’t get those super wide angle fancy pictures that are so all the rage nowsadaze. But Andy pointed out that this frame is a decent reflection of actual vision, and I suppose he has a point. It only lets in about as much information as I can process at a time anyway. Not sure I’m using it to full advantage, and my pictures look desperate or like puzzle pieces.
So then I left. More pics of that in a minute. Man, if I had to decide right now, I would say I’m happy to absolutely not return to Austin for any longer than it takes to pick up the rest of my stuff. I moved there in 2006 because my ex hubs loves it, and now I can’t think of any reasons to hang around. I’ll change my mind fifty times in the next 4 months, but my usual homesickness upon leaving is nill. I keep having this conversation: “Oh Austin, that’s suppose to be a great town, eh?” “It’s alright.” I’m gonna start saying I’m from Houston, and I love it. That usually shuts strangers up.
