It is my fortune or misfortune to see everday sights as if holding the camera up to my eye even when I am not giving photography a thought. And no camera is made that accommodates both eyes in the viewfinder. Only one. In this case the sight of one eye is better than two. With one eye I am able to see light in total darkness. In the darkness my glass of wine is the deepest and brightest of ruby reds. But is such wine only to be drunk, not seen? We’ll see.
