Glance of the eye

An eye can threaten like a loaded or leveled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; in its altered mood, by beams of kindness it can make the heart dance for joy. One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye, it trancends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity- emerson. I am taking a online photo journal class from LK Ludwig. One of the assignments was to take photos as if with a glimpse of the eye-very difficult to do. I am always posing my subjects, arranging items, checking the light ect ect. It was difficult to shoot from the hip so to speak. Most of my glimpses I noticed were of my pets I guess they just kept catching my attention. But it is amazing what a glimpse can do-across a crowded room from your husband, during a busy day at work from a co-worker. One glance saying 1000 words can make or break your day. I've heard that the eyes are windows to the soul why should not a glance be a treasured movement.


  1. Yes, yes, yes - that is so right! I've noticed that when I meet people, I can rarely tell you what someone was wearing, because I am such an eye-contact person. One glance can tell you everything you need to know and can sometimes change everything!! I hope you are getting lots of uplifting glances!!! Love, Silke
    P.S. Great photos!!
