Into the eye…

6 03 2011

I wonder what it is that power that forces us to look into the eyes of others? I bet you all know this. Sometimes you simply can’t resist to look into eye of other person or animal or sometimes, even flower. Now you can raise and objection that flowers don’t have eyes. Well, literally they don’t, of course, but don’t you think that center of blossom of some flower looks like an eye? Especially in cases when the flower center has a lot of interesting details such as in case of daisy, rose, clematis or… primula which you can see on following photo?

Sometimes the “eye” of the flower has interesting colours, other times it has so many details that we don’t even recognize them until we look at them though macro lens. But they are always worthy to be investigated, in my opinion, and they always draw my attention. Try it sometimes. You might be surprised what you will find.

Enjoy the Spring sunday where Spring has already arrived!

Technical notice: all photos in this post were taken with Canon EOS 450D camera and Canon EF 100mm USM macro lens mounted to a tripod, under natural conditions, indoors.

Lovely, Tomas!

Some might see ‘eye’, some might see ‘breast’ in this one. You just never can tell.

Thanks, Tracy. The old saying says “One sees what (s)he wants to see” 😉

Interesting analogy Tomas. I can’t say that I ever see eyes in flowers, but for animals, especially mammals – they are certainly the proclaimed windows into the soul.

What I meant was that we tend to look to the centre of the flower very often, especially when the centre is full of details or it is interesting in other way. At least I find very often myself pointing camera to the centre of the flower when looking for something interesting.
