Project 52 - Self Portrait

"The eyes are the window to the soul." - Unknown

I was given a challenge to take a self portrait once every day for the next year. Considering how much work that is (and knowing myself quite well), I decided to scale it back a bit to one picture a week and add a quote with it. This week... here I am.
I love close up shots of people. Love them. Especially when you can only see parts of their face. Eyes are the best. Our eyes are full of so much expression and emotion - they are one of my favorite things to photograph.
When I thought about all that I've been going through, that was the first picture that came to mind for me. So tell me, what do you see about me in this picture?

I think that a good word for how I look is apprehensive - which is funny because I tried going for a straight face. I didn't really want to be showing any emotion at all (especially anything Archer related). But you can see a slight tension inbetween my eyebrows and an almost scared look in my eyes that gives away what I am truly feeling.

I think you look concerned or worried. But it truly is a beautiful picture, you're right that eyes are so full of emotion!

Apprehensive is a good word, but you are so beautiful that it's hard to see past that.
