I Heart Faces–Beautiful Eyes


You may have seen this in his birthday tribute yesterday… but if there’s one thing my Mister qualifies for is a Beautiful Eyes theme.

Of course, if they had a Man Who Wears Socks With Sandals theme, he’d fit that too.  Just sayin… ;)


Did I ever tell you?

That the first time I ever saw this man… he was dressed in a blue jumpsuit, welding mask in hand, soot covering his face?

And when I saw those blue/green/grey peepers looking at me with a slight grin…

…well, all the words fell out of my head.


Fifteen years later:

IMG_9985 beautiful eyes


The clouds and the harbor reflected in his eyes – and something more.  I didn’t change a single lick of color in this picture.  I’m not smart enough to mess with saturation or levels.  There’s just no way to create that expression that I’m lucky enough to see every morning.

And it still makes the words fall out of my head.



Got any beautiful eyes in your life?  Join in at I Heart Faces

He does have fantastic eyes. Great shot!

Elle said...

Such a beautiful post... the words and the eyes - lovely :)

Gotta love a manly man. He does have beautiful eyes I must agree. My baby also has amazing blue eyes. And I also love seeing him covered in welding soot and all geared up to bend metal to his will.

Love this Rachel, and even more love the sentiments attached.

How wonderful it must be to see yourself through the eyes of someone who loves you so much. And to be loved that wholly and deeply... ahh Mr. Daddy, you are fortunate indeed. Beautiful capture of a beautiful love, Rach....

I told ya yesterday he had beautiful eyes and I stick with that. I can totally see why the words would fall out of your head when he looks at you..

Kmama said...

Your words are just as beautiful as his eyes. Great capture.

Sorry Rachel, I looked carefully. They don't do a thing for me.

But I am sure I'd be speechless if I woke up to find them staring at me...

And what a SWEETHEART he is! :D I LOVE this photo of him! It's a tie for first between this one and the one of him shooting. But that's just me. ;) LOL

The Allenspark comment was hilarious! This picture made me go "awe." I took a picture of my husband this summer and have it in my newest post when he's in the pool looking up. Our guys are very similar I think. Manly men. Love it. And by the way ... awesome photo -- and right out of the camera too! Geez, way to mess it up for the rest of us! :-) Mary

He has such amazing and engaging eyes!

Blu Grey said...

What a beautiful way to describe your feelings!

Saimi said...

Awe....You're right, he does have beautiful eyes!!

Foursons said...

Great shot Rachel. And I am even more impressed that you didn't edit it at all. As always your words are the perfect fit for the picture.

NaomiG said...

Great shot-he does have beautiful eyes! My husband has eyes that hit me like that too--smokey gray sometimes, mossy green sometimes, and blue others.

Jenilee said...

wow... love the color of his eyes! my hubs eyes change colors from green to blue to grey. love it!

Dawn said...

this is beautiful.

Emmy said...

Now that would be a first impression :) He does have great eyes. I posted a picture for this too- just on my photography blog since I already posted today

Stacyonthecouch said...

I don't know if I've ever seen a pic of Mr Daddy before, thanks for sharing. Very nice eyes, very nice post. I always check out men in work clothes. Dirty work boots. Rough hands. That's a MAN!!

Presley family said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I love that out of all of the many pictures, I am sure, you picked your man!!! Oh, and yes.... pretty beautiful eyes!

Heather said...

Love this picture, beautiful shot. Love that we can "hear" your love for him and see his for you.

robin said...

With eyes like the sea, after a storm....

This made me cry a little.
He is so handsome!

Hailey @ Me and My Boys said...

You know what I really love about your entry? It's unique. Don't get me wrong, I love all the precious babies, but I love that you used an adult whose eyes are deep and beautiful. What an awesome shot and great post!

Buckeroomama said...

More than the eyes themselves, it's the twinkle and the life in them.... :)

Beth Zimmerman said...

His eyes look a lot like Josiah's! God must give those eyes only to VERY special guys! :)

Simply Sara said...

your words.
his eyes.

Unknown said...

He wears socks with sandals?!?!?!? I broke mine of that habit, like, 13 years ago! Mr Daddy and I need to have a little chat!
