This beautiful portrait of Astrid in "Beate"
Rodenstock glasses concludes her summer
Astrid had a silent companion during this
fourth photo shoot. A white butterfly was
busy with the red flowers in the background.
Once more, Astrid, I thank you so much for
the great way you are posing in so many
different styles and dioptric strengths. Also
for your always pleasant company. The most
amazing aspect of your modeling is the way
you jump from one Rx to the other without
any visual effort. If you ever need glasses in
the distant future, I will gladly supply them!
The only disadvantage of these fine Luxotica
varifocals is that they are not stable and need
constant adjustment. Nel used them in a recent
photo shoot and she experienced the same
problem, although they were her own glasses.
Anyway, the portraits are truly great!
The reading segments in these beautiful dégradé
Sophia Loren bifocals are bigger than in the
accompanying Nigura sunglasses. This may have
to do with the shape of the frames, but also with
the first owner's need to do more close work with
her regular Loren glasses than with her Nigura
