Travel theme: Eyes

I couldn’t quite kick the feeling I was being watched as I walked along the coast the other day…

…and those soulful … and sealful … eyes provided me with the inspiration for this week’s theme. Here are some more eye-centric shots from my travels, starting off with these spooky eyes peering out of a window one Hallowe’en in New York.

Masks let your eyes do the talking, like this gorgeous mask worn on Wren Day in Dublin.

But when it comes to eyes that look right into your soul, these lemurs win my vote… and my heart.
