Eye candy

Christmas Eve is when Santa visits kids in Sweden, so Christmas Day was a chance to take it easy and enjoy the day.

To admire thoughtful gifts like these gorgeous silver earrings. Unique too.

(Sir Pe bought two necklaces and then had the shop make earrings out of them instead.)

It was also a day to play around with new toys: like my macro lens.

Sometimes eyes are shutters, or windows, to the inside —

And sometimes they reflect the world outside.

Like this photo: the family at the breakfast table, the mural on the wall,

The soft snow outside, me with my camera and my daughter’s beautiful eye.

(Sorry if you find the reflection of her eyelashes slightly freaky.)

“The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child.” — Emerson

If I looked into your eyes, what would I see?

  4. An amazing photo Fi! Well done! I would never have thought to do this! I wonder if it is “photo-shopped” or straight reflection? I would love to know your secret? – Dave


    1. I don’t own photoshop. This is a photo straight out of the camera. The light was just right and I managed to get a reflection of myself in my duaghter’s eye… No secret really. Just point, focus and shoot!

  6. What a unique shot! I’m impressed with your macro camera shot of your daughter’s eye. Her eye is perfectly in focus and I can see things in the room behind you. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
