A portrait of my family once a week, every week in 2013
Maxi: He watches the clicking camera with calm curiosity as his golden eyes and glossy black fur shine in the spring sunlight.
Cats eyes. The most intriguing eyes I can imagine. More captivating than the seeing eye globes of a charming snake, with their tiny pupil slits. More breath-taking than the bulging eyes of a cantankerous camel with their horizontal pupils and impossibly long eyelashes.
His pupils are doe-eyed, deep-black round pools at night, dilated to detect movement and improve his sight in the low lit environment. His iris deepens in colour as it relaxes, golden with flecks of amber.
Byron, my sweet darling, you have captured a beautiful picture of Maxi in the late spring morning.
This week is all about the eyes for me. Big blue eyes. Watchful eyes. Determined eyes. Smiley eyes. Perfectly chocolate eyes. Playful eyes. Innocent eyes.
