I've noticed that when I am shooting art, especially wall art, I find myself shooting just portions of the paintings. And if it is a portrait, I often focus just on the subject's eyes. It is amazing how different artists translate the human face, especially the eyes, in their work. And when I took advantage of free admission to the Milwaukee Art Museum last Thursday evening, I found myself shooting just the eyes of a number of painting. The museum was fairly crowded (after all, it there was free admission), and I occasionally wondered what the other patrons were thinking of my behavior of snapping pictures from a distance of one or two feet.
Here, roughly in order of the level of abstraction, are a number of sets of eyes.
