I entered this photo in i Heart Faces Beautiful Eyes Photo Challenge


Maybe I’ll have better luck with this photo and judging than I did hereJudging can be harsh!

I’m entry #690The exact number is switching a bit due to other entrants dropping out or being disqualified.

Not sure I hold out too much hope of winning anything but it’s fun to try and play along.

And if you have photography questions, editing questions, camera questions, see my Photography Section for more.


From my last post, Free Samples, it was fun hearing what you’ve sampled lately and many of you said that you think free samples taste better in the store than when you get them home, too.  Glad I’m not alone.



1. Who do you know with beautiful eyes? 

Of course every mother is say her child’s eyes are beautiful and I am no exception.  I love Skylar’s eyes!

2. Do you think your eyes are beautiful?  What color are they?

One feature I get complimented on are my eyes.   But I have no idea what color they are!

Some days they are blue, other days green.

Other days blue-green.

And other days more green-blue.

I actually don’t know what I currently have listed on my driver’s license. Blue or green.  They’re that fickle.

They are never the same color twice!  When I am out in the sun, they seem to get more vibrant and also they fade.  Sometimes I think it’s just my skin looking darker than makes my eyes look lighter.  However, I think my eyes actually “bleach out” a bit in the sun.  No lectures on cataracts and sun damage please.  Just musing and pondering and sharing out loud here.

They are also prone to getting red and bloodshot, in general.  A trait from my dad who has notoriously bloodshot-prone eyes.

Sometimes when I look at Skylar it’s like looking at my father.  Same eyes, same expression in her eyes.  The 4 year old female version of him.  It’s amazing how powerful genetics are!

See this post for other pictures of Skylar’s braids and eyes and her eye color is pretty fickle and ever-changing, too.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming on the next post.  It’s a recipe you won’t want to miss.  At all.  Hint: It may involve something kind of like this.  Kind of.
