In his eyes.

By CecilyC
This is the third shot from my school project years back. I hesitated whether or not i should upload this picture - not because it wasn't beautiful, I know it is - but I suppose my hesitation was more due to my feelings for this particular shot. I LOVE it, naturally. But the gorgeous guy in the shot is an old love and I remember taking this shot, stoned in love, and then when I first saw the outcome I remember thinking that you can see it in his eyes, how much he loves me, how much we share. Perhaps it sounds silly; well, Im sure it does, but you know there are these moments in life, these moments you know you'll always remember and always cherish. (no matter if you're only 16 or 61) This is one of those moments of mine. I hope you see beyond the portrait when you look at this image. At least I do.
Thanks for having a look, and sorry for the long description Smile (oh, and please note that this photo is scanned so the quality isn't the best! thanx)

photography is as much about emotion as it is about beautiful landscapes or any other image. It's easy to shoot beautiful landscapes (for some people), but much more difficult to shoot emotion. You've captured an emotional and personal moment and that stands out, so this is a great shot for me.

I agree with the above. A good portrait should have the subject's personality coming through, a feeling that is associated with that specific person as they convey it. If well captured, as you have in this shot, the other considerations can almost become secondary. Like the shot and keep em coming.

The description alone is worth a click Cat. It certainly takes me back to times gone past, that I love to relive in my mind from time to time. Wonderful thoughts.

Well captured.
Those eyes speak voloumes.
I was going through some old pics of mine last night, looking at images very similar to yours.
As you said, age doesn't matter, it's what's in the heart.

What with all you yourself have divulged and the previous comments, there's not much more I can say except thanks for sharing. It's great being eighteen although a bit hard for me to remember back that far!
Great shot, even better write-up.
Regards and thanks for your comment, I'm still very low on the learning curve I'm afraid. Jim

I think your description says it all. I believe most people are lucky enough to experience such emotion in their life (however it eventually turns out!!). I say most because I'm sure not everyone does. (Christ - I almost sound old and wise?? maybe just older!!!!)

Anyway i think it's very personal and for that you get a CLICK!

I think this is a sweet picture. And it does remind me of being fond of someone. It's tender.

A lot of emotion in both the shot and your recollection, well done, the beggining of a successful career?

Don't be sorry about the long description - I loved it. And it adds to the picture - which, I must add, doesn't really need any help 'cos it's a wonderful shot.

I know what you mean about moments you'll always cherish - and you're so lucky to have caught this one with such perfection Smile
