When your eyes are working this hard for a long period of time, the strain may cause a number of physical effects. Symptoms of eye strain include sore eyeballs, headaches, back and neck aches, drooping eyelids and blurred vision. Because you often don't blink enough when focusing on a single object, you may also experience uncomfortable dryness in your eyes. None of this damages your eyes, and all of it eventually goes away after you stop straining them. Many eye doctors leave it at that, but some note that eye strain may contribute to nearsightedness. Most people who are nearsighted were born that way, but there is evidence that prolonged eye strain can make it worse.

Yummy Squirrel

Yummy Squirrel, originally uploaded by luzer.

I was walking around the UWS yesterday with my brand new (2nd-hand) Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 ED Tele Lens weighing down on my shoulder strap/neck, wondering why i bothered carrying this monster of a lens around with me; when, suddenly saw a crowd gathering near the Museum Natural History.

Knowing NYers care not for (human) celebrities, I was surprise to see a hawk devouring a squirrel. Some viewers guessed it was Pale Male. I am not convinced (we saw another one later in the park).

Best Present for a Husband to give his Wife?

Though no longer in the running for husband-of-the-year, I still try and buy the perfect gift for my WAG, no matter the occasions.

A technique I have employed recently is to buy her a gift that, even if she doesn't love it, I, perchance, might still enjoy. This way- even if she hates it- you can still make use of it. Sometimes this is moderately successful (iMac), sometimes it fails (The Look Book), and sometimes its met with a weird, half-smiling/half-grimacing, mixed reaction (Nimrod Nation T-Shirts).

However, based on the success of the 5Wii New Year's Party, I am thinking the Nintendo Wii *might* be a success...

more to come

Playing around with long shutter speeds, and my newish Gorillapod, at the first annual 5Wii New-years Party.

Needless to say, we had fun.

Thanks, hosts and models!
