Things are looking up

Is that the big dipper in her eye?

Rick Lee said...

It's the frame of a window with an unusual shape.

I know it's a woman's eye, but it's making me think of my hubby; he's had corneal transplants and they're trying to reject (I wrote about it today on my blog). You'd enjoy photographing his eyes; they're very interesting since the transplants. It looks like he's wearing contacts, but the blue under the transplants is just slightly different then the outside line. Hard to describe and probably no one else notices it, but I do. Sorry, this comment should be about your photo and not me, but it is what it made me thing of....

Have a great day! OK, have a great day tomorrow; and a good sleep tonight! :-)

So, since you do heathcare marketing photography, is this photo for eye drops, perhaps?

Rick Lee said...

It's not for an ad or anything. I've just been photographing a lot of eyes lately just for fun. Since starting the blog I've been carrying the little Pentax with me everywhere and it does such a remarkable job on close-ups that I'm always looking for interesting close-ups to shoot. A few weeks ago I took a picture of my own eye and it was disgusting. It's an old person's eye. I then shot a picture of my 16 year old neice's eye and it was a real pleasure to look at. So for the next few weeks I kept taking pictures of young women's eyes. I just thought this one in particular was worthy of sharing. It's a remarkably beautiful eye. I also like the reflection. I think I'll post another eye.... coming right up.

cool thought, but think of this, Rick... those old peoples eyes may not be as estectically pleasing, but I think they may have more beauty than the 16 year old eyes. They've seen more, witnessed more, wept more and lived more than the young pretty eyes. And, they've told more stories, too.

I'd like to see an "old eye" shown with dignity and joy.

Just a few thoughts....

Rick Lee said...

Yeah, a nice grandmotherly eye might be interesting and very cool. Mine, on the other hand, are just bloodshot and bumpy.

The reflection in this eye looks like the kinetic sculpture/mobile installed on the grounds of the Huntington Museum of Art.

Rick Lee said...

Anodyne, yes I can see that. It does look like that sculpture with the big moving arms. I think I said in a previous post that it's a window frame. If you were sitting in the dining area at Tamarack you'd be able to see that particular window.
