For some reason I was wondering what my lens would do trying to focus through glasses. Turns out it has no effect other than making everything else blurry.

EXIF:
55mm
f/5.7
1/160
ISO 400

P.S. The color fringing you see is due to the glasses. I wear contacts most of the time, and when I wear these glasses I see the same effect on the outer edge of the lenses.

Yeah, it's the glasses fault though - I wonder if mine are especially bad about it or if all glasses are. I could probably photoshop it out if I tried to, but it wouldn't be easy.

Very neat idea. I wonder if the same principle would work through other objects like a magnifiglass. I hope you experiment with this some more and show us what else you created!

I don't think a magnifying glass will be as easy to use as glasses. I'm sure you could do something similar though.
