The Eyes May Have It, But WHO’S Eyes???

I’m joining Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry for You Capture.  This weeks challenge was to post a photo I took, processed in black and white.  I’m also linking to Sharon’s Just For The joy Of It, over at Good True and Beautiful.  Because this sure was fun!

So, anyways.  Here it goes.

I was going to take a picture of one of my boys playing with his Star Wars figures.  Which I did.  But this got me thinking about eyes.  Any wonder?

Eye in the middle And it snowballed from there.

Eye 1Before you know it, I was on a mission to capture as many eyes as I could find.

eye 2From the smallest boy, to the largest.eye 3

And when I ran out of boys (cute as they are), I went looking for other eyes.  :)  And was tickled at how many fun ones I found!

So here they are!  See how many you can identify.  And then tell us how well you did!  We’ll start out easy.  Lol!

O.K.  Confession time.  The last picture was one I took on vacation several weeks ago.  But how could I resist including those eyes??

Did you guess them all?  Check yourself.

A very nasty biting green-head fly.

eye 6a

A Tiger Swallow Tail Butterfly.

eye 7a

Wasp.

eye 8a   My brother’s chicken.  (Sorry.  That’s as specific as I can get.  Lol!)

 

The black and white versions added some difficulty to the task, didn’t it?

How well did you do?

You're so funny my friend. I loved the first picture with the Lincoln Logs.
And I got all but one picture right.
So how are you? Miss you! You must come to Florida and visit me. LOL!
Have a great day.

Great series of pictures and so much fun to try and guess! I wasn't very good, but I had fun!

Elizabeth said...

Very interesting and great photos. I like your "About Me" page too - we've made a lot of sacrifices for me to be a SAHM but find it's totally worth it as well!

So many clever eye shots, i loved this! I'm keeping it up to show my 11 year old, she will get a kick out of it!

I did better than I should have. Was not specific on the wasp.

I used to do this for fundraisers for animals needing adoption. The eyes speak volumes.
