The Art in Eyes
I remember when I was about 17 years old waitressing at this little restaurant in my home town, and a customer commented on my eyes. Up until that point I had never even really looked at them before. He just said something about how I had this pretty rim around my irises of a lighter color that he had never seen before. When I was in college I met this handsome, dark-haired, blue-eyed guy named Trent. He told me how pretty my eyes were every time the light hit them just right. So I married him. Little did he know that the old guy in the restaurant had laid some ground work for him. I guess he knows now. :)
Long story, but I guess that's where my fascination with eyes started. They are just so amazing to me. When you look at them closely you see this whole nebulous-like world in them. Just so cool. My kids have great eyes. Not sure if they get any of it from me, or if it is all my husband, but wherever they get it from, it sure makes for great art, don't you think?
Oh, and just for fun, the kids hanging upside down on the couch. Their eyes look great, even in black and white to me.
