Eye reflections - Weekend reflections # 61


I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs
because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.

Lovely eye and photos of eye. And the 'author unknown' quote is something I would more than agree with. The camera over the last several years has sure opened my eyes to the world around me. Bravo, Gabriela.

Francisca said...

That's quite the lens you have, Gabriela. In the first photo I first saw a woman crying with her hands to her face, and then I realized it had to be you, the photographer. Very clever photos and I like the post processing on the top one... great eye colors. And your choices of quotes are apt. Nice!
