the eyes have it

I always feel a little silly entering some of these same contests as real and amazing photographers... I am not even close to pretending that I know what I'm doing, and my images are almost laughable compared to most of theirs. I do however, stumble upon some shots in my camera every once in awhile that I love and decide, what the heck, it's fun to enter. Nicole introduced me to this new site, I Heart Faces, all about getting up close and sharing the faces we love through our cameras. Each week they open a contest with a theme and not only is it so fun to go through and see everyone's perspective on capturing faces, it's a great place for not-really-photographers like me to learn and be inspired!

So the above picture is my entry for this week's "The Eyes Have It" theme. It's from almost a year ago, but Savannah's eyes are what have always stood out to me in this picture, and although I can never quite decide what exactly her eyes are saying here, I kind of like it that way. That, and her eyes are such an amazing combination of color... they're not really hazel, but a freckled mix of distinct brown, blue, green and gray. Very cool to look at and I love when I get a good shot of them.

Check out the other faces at the blog:
