A World of Beautiful Eyes

In our family there are blue eyes, brown eyes, hazel eyes and occasionally tired eyes.
But few can capture the true inner spirit of a person's eyes than
Steve McCurry, photographer extraordinaire.

comes into my mailbox as a gift--no price tag.
Some of his photographs actually make my heart ache, my eyes tear up and then there are those
that put a smile on my face, or teach me a lesson in humanity. 
For a short time I go to another "place" as I slowly scroll through his photography.
Photographs of people from all over the world are always my favorite.

Steve McCurry is very generous. You can download an image onto your desk top. Save an image to further enjoy but mostly one learns lessons through his lens that one might have missed.

Today I just want to share a few favorites from his post focusing on Eyes.

To share one of his quotes:
"There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect."
G.K. Chesterton

Mr. McCurry seems such a generous man that I hope it is okay to share a few photos from the link provided above.

What does your heart see through his lens?

We are surrounded by beautiful eyes, look deep and long, Eyes lead us to the Soul.

Every living thing has eyes that tell a story.

  1. Stunning post and photos! I have goosebumps. I clicked to your blog, drawn by your pup's eyes. So sweet. Glad to find you from Texture Tuesday!

  2. Your photos are wonderful.Glad I don't have to pick a favorite between the baby and the dog one. Seems you share a talent with Steve or, you have learned a heck of alot by looking at his pictures, or maybe both.
