A focus upon the immediate future

"...a rapid passage between old and new, like rapid alteration of the eye's focus in looking at the landscape, will always be wearisome and hurtful to the sense of beauty."

 

— Preface. Palgrave, Francis T., ed. 1875. The Golden Treasury

 

This felt appropriate today, because I just returned from my eye doctor. No retinopathy, no cataracts, and a new need for bifocals. Yay.

 

I need focus.

This one is serving as my wallpaper currently. I took the Gravel Road texture, added some text, did a bunch of selective blurring and vignetting, and … Voilà!

 

I employed a couple textures from fellow Flickrer Patrick Hoesly (www.zooboing.com/). If you need a handy texture, check him out!
