Those Eyes :: I Heart Faces Submission

Photo Challenge Submission


 I know, its been forever and a day since I've entered an I Heart Faces photo challenge. I faithfully look over all the image submissions every month, but struggle to find one of my own images that meets the criteria and my standards for entry.

This month's theme is "Beautiful Eyes" and I knew exactly what picture I would choose. It may be several years old, but it is still one of my favorite pictures of Jayce ever. A print of this goes in a frame every Fall.

The story behind it is simple. I wanted to get pictures of Jaina and Jayce playing in the Fall leaves. As per usual at that age, they weren't cooperating. Jayce picked up a leaf to show me and I was standing way too close to him and not paying a bit of attention to composition. What resulted was a happy accident with my automatic focus on my camera :)


All three of my children get complimented on their unique eyes, but none more than Jayce. His eyes are "Chameleon Eyes" which change color depending on which shirt he wears. If you stare keep down in them, you won't know color to describe them. "Brown? Green? Hazel? Blue?" Its all in there.
