Expressions – the face of emotion


“The eyes are the windows to the soul”

is one of the most capturing quotes I have ever read and one that sticks with me constantly. I do like to read people and their eyes are very good give aways. You can tell if your friend is hiding something from you, if your child is lying (well maybe not always on that one!) and what really comes out at you is how that person is feeling inside. Many a smile disguises anguish, upset and deep pain as in this world we’re so used to replying ‘Oh, I’m fine thanks.’ to the question ‘How are you?’ and it takes a little extra attention and digging to really find out how that person is if you really want to know of course.

So when Tara prompted us this week with expressions I immediately had a few old photos in mind, you know the ones that stick in your mind because they captured something you weren’t necessarily looking for?

My Three girls. Alice, Bessie and Gracey

Speaks for itself doesn't it!

Alice gets close up with the camera

having fun, laughing

You alright son? Got everything you need boy? Comfy? You sit and relax whilst I get your dinner ready eh?

Well, no fear of the lens there!

Sweet, shy and wannabe raucous teenager

    lovely photos. I went with eyes too – you can tell a lot about a person by their eyes I think 🙂
