A neighbor’s niece was visiting from out of town.
We were introduced.
Your eyes, I said.
Yeah, I know, she replied.
Yeah, I know.
Confidence, you got to love it.
Can I take your picture, I asked.
In the shade of our backyard,
She sat in front of the side of our house,
Which was brightly illuminated behind her.
I went high key with the 85mm
And got lots of fun-interesting shots in minutes,
Like this one, slightly playful…
…and this one, brightly astonished…
…and then this one, exotic eyes edged with reptilian intensity.
Notice how the taupe background on the left
And the green background on the right
Pool in her irises like an estuary,
Where a brown river meets an emerald sea.
Love it when that happens.
