Back Page - Crazy Eyes


My friend over at TATTERED AND LOST blog suggested this category: CRAZY EYES. I decided to include any picture where the subject's eyes were a bit unusual,mysterious or prominent in some way. There are some who look a little scary and others that look downright ominous. Whatever the effect, for this page, the "eyes have it."

Now, since not all of these are head and shoulder portraits, those "crazy eyes" will not always be evident. So, I will do something a bit different for this page. In some cases I will add an enlarged crop of just the faces, so that the eyes that got them on this page, will be easily seen.

Although none of these people in this group seem too happy about the occasion, the children express it best.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
