Nora's Left EyeNora’s eyes were looking particularly beautiful the yesterday, so I broke out the close-up lenses for a photography session (again). The term close-up is really very apt, as this is really what she looks like when you nuzzle up to her face. After a few shots, I decided to turn the camera on myself, to see the contrast between old eyes and young eyes.

Nora's Left Eye
I admit that I tweaked the saturation a bit here, but only because the lighting didn’t capture the true blueness of her iris.

Nora's Right Eye
Right eye.

Man, this contrast makes me look old wise!

Erik's Right Eye
Just my right eye.

My office, as I see it. This is a crop of the previous photo, clearly showing my desk, printer, office chair, and monitor. Pretty cool.

Her blue eyes are really quite stunning. Living here in the land of brown hair and brown eyes, her baby blues are the first thing people notice and comment on about her. I’m secretly hoping that Nora gets some of my green and yellow when she gets older.

    As I recall, your eyes were blue for at least the first year maybe longer before migrating to green. Nora’s eyes are spectacularly beautiful, if I do say so.

    Hi Erik, I´m a student from Germany.
    At the moment I create a poster for a competition under the motto “Old and Young”. I plan to face pairs of eyes of a young and an old man. So I wanted to ask you if I could use Nora’s pair of eyes on my poster.

    Greetings

      Yes, you can use the photo. Please share your final design here, when you’re done.
