Daily Dozen – Men with Round Glasses

A while ago I did a set of people wearing rectangular glasses, the official specs of the hipster set. Actually they’ve gone way beyond that crowd and are taking over the planet. That’s not to say there aren’t other styles out there and one of the most popular is definitely round. I spent a little time looking for round glasses in my photos and came up with a batch of them. It’s

Daily Dozen – Women in Glasses

I’ve posted glasses sets in the past. One featured rectangular glasses, another sunglasses (two sets actually – here’s the second) and one of rimless glasses. None of those sets were gender-specific. Today’s obviously is. While black rectangular glasses are the most common, I’ve tried to find pairs that stood out in some way, either non-rectangular or more colorful or with broad arms, etc. It’s interesting that the range of eyewear for both women and men is so narrow. Interesting and too bad. Glasses can be a great accessory but there’s just not very much interesting that I can see (no pun intended). Of course I’m one to talk since I wear black rectangles myself . . .

Daily Dozen – 12 (women with) Lashes!

This set popped into my head on Friday. There was on picture of a woman with long eyelashes and it suggested this set to me. Eyelashes are tough to see sometimes – particularly in small photos. I went through many to find a few dozen candidates and then filtered that set again to come up with these 12. No doubt I have better examples somewhere in my photos but these seemed to fit the bill nicely. Hope you enjoy them!

Daily Dozen – Women with a Sparkle in their Eyes

This set is going to be a little subjective. I suppose all of them are in a way but this one more than most. That’s because the sparkle in someone’s eye is really easy to see in life but harder in a photograph. I’ve chosen many of today’s faces based on memory rather than looking at the image itself. That’s absolutely fine with me though; and since this is my project that makes it A-OK. I hope you’ll enjoy the pictures and can see the sparkles. All of them are from 1000faces 3. (Speaking of which, I am only 15 photographs away from 3000 and starting the next set!)

Daily Dozen – These brown eyes won’t make you blue

When I was a kid, my father would drive us to school (at least for a time). I can’t recall the reason but I enjoyed those rides. Talking about words, listening to “Test the Teams” on WBZ and music too. One of the songs that sticks out in my memory is Crystal Gayle singing “Don’t it Make my Brown Eyes Blue.” I woke up today with a snippet of that song in my head and that’s what led to today’s Daily Dozen. Here are 12 women with nice blue eyes.

Daily Dozen – Ladies Looking Away

I liked Friday’s “no eye contact” theme and decided to do it again for women this time. To find the images I went back to my first set of 1000faces. I love looking through the early sets and recalling the people I’ve met and the occasions that I’ve photographed. Give them a look. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Daily Dozen – Eyes Wide Closed

I have a couple of posts I need to do today. The Daily Dozen of course but also the preview for next week’s WebInno. That’s going to take a while, what with all the other things I need to do today; but the Daily Dozen, I can’t close my eyes to the responsibility for posting that! And closed eyes is the theme for today’s set. You’ll see 12 people with their eyes shut.

There are several different ways people close their eyes. They might shut them tight to block out the sun, close them slightly to look coy or have them shut as they seem to reflect or relax or enjoy themselves. There are examples of each below and I hope you’ll enjoy them.
