Elements of Self: Eyes

So continuing my self portrait project with Shakti Mama today is Eyes. Eyes have been something I have mixed feelings on, mine are green. They fade to grey sometimes, especially when I’m tired and sad, they are fiery when they are happy and excited, going a deep green that can flash, they literally are windows to my soul. It’s the thing that through my life men have told me they have first noticed about me. Whether I believe that or not is another thing but it doesn’t hurt does it. Now the bridge of my nose isn’t noticeably wide, at least I don’t *think* so, but in medical terms it is which means that straight on, my eyes seem a little off centre, there’s no squint there and my son has the same thing, it’s just the bridge of our noses are unbalancing our eyes.

I also think a lack of eyes can say so much too. So here are my pictures this week. I haven’t excluded the rest of my face, I wanted to make my eyes dominate my whole face.

  1. Nice series — all three photos are so different, with different moods but I like them all.

    I like the first one for its frankness, and your eyes are so clear.
    The second one makes a mood with color.
    The third one, arrested movement, a moment of emotion.

    Thank you,
    Stacy

  2. What intense and beautiful eyes you have. I love this second photograph, the grittiness of the photograph, and your almost challenging yet vulnerable gaze. The first is beautiful, too, the black and white adds to the vulnerability of your gaze … and a certain timelessness and softness.

    I was looking over some of your other posts, and I’m so happy that you have decided to do this challenge, as well as the name of your blog to indicate a more all-around embracing of the self … we all need serious self-loving, don’t we?

    To me, your eyes don’t look off-center in the least …

    Peace and love.
