Day 23 - Smiling Eyes

Celebrate the pretty things in life. Make a photograph of the most beautiful thing you see today. Anyone who meets Peg always comments on her eyes. She has what I call smiling eyes. You can tell she's smiling just by looking at her eyes and when she smiles her face lights up. She grudgingly agreed to be my model today and I even managed to get her to smile. I played with the photo in Photoshop. I was hoping to bring out the green in her eyes a bit more but it's kind of tricky as the green is close to the gray.

Peg has the same golden rim around the pupil as I do. Her eyes are really striking.....

Smiling eyes indeed! She's not Irish, by any chance, is she? Haha :)
