About this phlog…

jim caro

I’ve heard you, wrong spelling but since kaleidoscope is already taken and this photo blog best describes my condition I opted to just go with it. πŸ™‚

Dictionary.com defines kaleidoscope as

an optical instrument in which bits of glass, held loosely at the end of a rotating tube, are shown in continually changing symmetrical forms by reflection in two or more mirrors set at angles to each other.

a continually changing pattern of shapes and colors.

a continually shifting pattern, scene, or the like: The 1920s were a kaleidoscope of fads and fashions.

What does this has to do with me? Well, I love photography and I shoot photos and try to make an SLR out of a point and shoot camera. However, late in 2007 I was diagnosed with central serous retinopathy a visual impairment that is characterized by tearing of the central macula, which results to blurred or distorted vision. In my condition, I have a blind or gray spot from time to time in my central vision. The good news is it’s only in my right eye and these past few months have been promising as I experience seemingly ‘normal’ vision (the condition should be temporary but to some it is permanent) though I could not deny that my visual acuity is never the same.

I’m no great photographer but a lover of the lens, color and life. So, please indulge as I leave a part of me on the blogosphere in this photo blog. You can also see other photoblogs and photography resource that I regularly visit here. πŸ™‚

  1. wow.
    I didn’t expect that we almost have the same idea for the name of the blog, I’m so surprised XD

  2. Yeah, thanks for visiting! it’s nice to know someone who also thought of the same thing almost at the same time. πŸ˜€ I’m sure you’ll be able to get a good entry level SLR. I’m a proud owner of a Nikon D40X. Do visit again. πŸ™‚

  3. hi Jim! i love your photoblog (the simplicity of the layout and the narratives). Although I am using Nikon D80, most of the time D40x hawak ko kase yun ang camera sa office, hehe. I love the sharpness and the vividness of the images. Most of all, it’s light and handy. Excited ako sa mga susunod mong mga kuha. cheers!

  4. Hi Rayts! maraming salamat sa pagbisita. It’s really good that wordpress has a design suited for photobloggers. I changed this once to accommodate my blogroll kasi ‘di nalabas sa design na ito yung blogroll page ko, I’ll just include a link in this page. As I’ve said, medyo may topak mata ko kaya most of my shots are lucky shots indeed at some point I don’t have any idea if the colors or the focus is proper, so I’m almost shooting blind sometimes but ei I don’t fret I enjoy this hobby and, yes, you’re one of people I admire in photography! πŸ˜€

  5. Hello Joe, ayos lang ako at pamilya dito πŸ™‚ salamat sa papuri. I’ll add your photoblog sa blogroll ko. πŸ™‚ regards!
