It never ceases to amaze me how the camera can capture what the eye can’t see in the passing of time. Anything from just a few blinks of an eye to the smoothness of a waterfall slowed down in a long exposure, or a whole season tracked in a solargraph.

In this image, it’s the catchlights in her eye that captivate me. And though there are multiple eyes, eyelashes and catchlights superimposed in a way that should be distracting, it is impossible not to look hard at that compelling gaze and take a guess at what she might be thinking.
