I've heard it said that the eyes are the gateway to a person's soul. Well, this challenge is all about eyes. It can be human eyes or it can be animal eyes, or even the eyes of an inanimate object if it is expressive enough, but the image must scream eyes! Not just a picture of a face with eyes, but a picture that shows the eye or eyes as the main focus of the image.

This challenge will run till October 31 2019 at 7pm Alaska time (GMT -9 or PST-1)

Here are my examples:

    Interesting topic!

    1. A girl and her cat

    2. Bonnie's Eyes. I lost my 18-yr old Bonnie girl earlier this year. I still miss that cat.

    Edited to add:
    I didn't find the one photo that I really had in mind, but I did find this one of our Sugar kitty. She has the most gorgeous blue eyes.
    3. Sugar

    I'm embarrassed to say I only have animal photos that meed this criteria. Think it's an Anti-social problem?

    1) This is Wally trying his first Selfie. All nose and eyes in deep concentration.

    2) Praying Mantis giving me the teenie-weenie evil eye to leave her alone.

    3) Crazed eyes of a calf not very sure if the older one is playing or fighting.

    I don't have a lot of human (or mammal) eyes in my portfolio, but there other images where the eyes have it, so to speak

    1. Honeybee (she was pretty patient with me sticking the lens in her face, and she paused in her foraging to make sure I was not a predator)

    1. Perched eagle (it was a bit chilling to focus on this bird, and realize I was being watched equally closely)

    1. Tree spirit eyes. There is a trail near us, where a local artist has placed clay masks onto cedar trees. The trees either watch you, or disregard you, as this one does

    I have a couple of collages that I have made which I would like to have them both considered as one entry. I don't think this is exactly what you had in mind but I thought you might get a kick out of them.

    -1a Inherited Blue Eyes (Mother, Daughter and Son). The mother was 5 and the two children were 12 and 13 - photos that I took at various times

    -1b Four Generations of Eyes (Great grandfather (age 79) Father (age 44), Son (age 22), Grandson) The Grandfather (my husband) Father and Son were from a four generation picture, but the Grandson was a baby at the time and his eyes were mostly squinting, so his eyes were from a photo at age 5.

    -2 What is THAT?

    -3 Old Time Selfie

    This is a digitized slide that I took of myself in 1960 - I was holding a hand mirror in one hand and taking the photo with the other hand.

    Originally I intended to have just eyes of animals, but I was sidetracked and my intentions were derailed :smile:

    You can't upload directly here, you need to link from another site (like SmugMug, Flickr, Photobucket etc.)

    @pegelli and @Legit_Wizard = you actually can upload files directly to Dgrin using the "Insert Image/Choose Files" (
    ) option, but there is a waiting period to post photos for new users. I would try again after a few more posts.

    Since I try to avoid photographing people, all I have are cats.
    Shadow can't believe what she's seeing

    Skitz glares at the photographer, all the time...
