Focussing on Eyes: Weekly Photo Challenge

Closeups of eyes can be problematical as they seem to have a flickering life of their own.

My nephew, however, was well practiced at the stare.

Zac too would focus but his were covered by his hairy brows

Most cities these days seem to have their own eye. This one is the Melbourne Eye.

Pelicans eyes are like buttons.

Proudly eyeing our created work all eyes were focussed.

Immensely proud eyes and looking for praise for a job well done.

How often do you hear “Look at the camera”. Obediently looking, carefully still.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    Wonderful eyes. But I never know what’s behind my animal’s eyes – an enigma!
