Matthew's Eye has been healing ever since he got a nasty shot from someone. His site shows the process through a series of photos, one taken per day.

Third day is always the worst.

heh! stuff like this is sort of compelling. there is a guy who has daily pics of his family going back over years. you can watch the kids grow while the parents age. it's depressing! and the other day i saw 'time lapse' pages a woman made of her recluse spider bite healing. (i hope to god i never meet a recluse spider after seeing that!) i wish i had done this with my tracker. over 2 years and 50,000 miles later, it looks radically different. the molding is defenestrated. there are numerous dents, dings and scrapes. i love that damn thing!

That punk won't fuck with me again.

I always enjoy this kind of project more when it's executed with control: the same framing of the eye with the same lighting and exposure every time. Something you could string together and animate.

I think this is the spider-bite site. Maybe not safe for the squeamish.

Reminds me of these oldies but goodies.

The blood in the eye doesn't seem to be going away. He should have that (ahem) looked at.

Thanks alot, davidmsc. I may never go outdoors again. (But if I do I'll be carrying a stun gun and nitro patches.)

I see brown recluse spiders on an almost-daily basis. If I am up late at night I sometimes wander around with a flashlight and some toilet paper and flush any that I find. They tend to come out after dark and I like to keep them thinned out. I have been trying to eliminate areas that bugs and spiders can get into the house ever since I got up one morning and found a dead recluse underneath my shoulder. I had on a thick t-shirt, thank the heavens. So no bite.

Holy moley, that BRS page is the scariest thing I have seen in a long time. I realized about 2/3rd of the way through that my knuckles were white from gripping the arm of the chair.

The doctor apparently told him the blood won't leave his eye for a month or two.. the result: rose tinted vision!

I had a staph infection that almost cost me my hand that was almost bad as those BRS bites, but without the widespread necrosis.

If I ever suspect I've been bitten, I'm printing out the stun-gun and nitro protocols and taking 'em with me to the ER. If the physician refuses to listen, I'm walking out & going to the next ER I can find.

Is it just me or is his eye showing Lone Star pride on the 14th?
