eyes {see it snap it love it}


First off I will apologise for being very unoriginal when it came to this weeks theme.
I went for my beautiful boy's beautiful eyes
because they are, quite frankly, extraordinary.
They are chocolatey pools of gorgeousness
and just simply couldn't have photographed anything else.

Getting a close up picture of a (not quite toddling) toddler isn't easy,
because he rarely stays still long enough for me to get a close up which isn't blurry and out of focus.
So I resorted to photographing him when he was at least partially contained;
in the bath.
He looks kind of moody about me taking his picture,
because he was getting tired and wanted me to sing "Five Little Ducks" instead of take pictures.
But his eyes just look so yummy


The picture from last week
which wins Photo of the Week
for the red theme is this one:


a gorgeous close up from Rollercoaster-Mum,
who gets to show off her winners badge if she wishes.

For next week she has chosen the theme of 'Water'.

I can't wait to see all the 'Eye' pictures that you have to link up this week.
Don't forget to grab the badge,
to comment on some other entries
and to tweet your link to @dear_beautiful_ so I can retweet them for you.

    1. Hehehe. I'm letting you know all my secrets. I actually put him in a box or basket sometimes to take his picture because he'll sit good as gold. x

    1. Badges are being silly blighters in Wordpress at the moment. You need to take the < bits and replace them with < for the first >for the 2nd, then < for the 3rd and > for the 4th. I can't leave the code fixed in the comments as it won't let me.

      Wordpress have done some odd script stripping things lately and everyone is having trouble with badges :(

    2. Annie, you are an angel. I have no idea as far as badges are concerned on Wordpress, so thank-you for clearing that up.
      But it does beg the question.... why do they have to make it so difficult? x

  5. Just beautiful!!! I can't get the badge to work. Any ideas? I'm Wordpress self hosted.

    1. I think Mammasaurus may have answered your issues on the previous comment. Hope you can work it out somehow. x

    1. I just adore his eyes. Well, I adore everything about him, but I do think his eyes are particularly gorgeous. x

  7. What a BEAUTIFUL BOY! Glad I have found your blog, I am new to blogging and certainly new to all these link ups but I'm loving the photo ones. So i guess the winner from the previous week chooses the theme for the following week? I'm slowly catching on....when does the week start? I'd like to have a go at joining in next week.

    1. Hello and welcome. I'd love you to join in, and yes the winner picks the next theme, that way it makes it a challenge for me as much as everyone else. The linky opens on a Tuesday and closes the following Monday, so you can contribute an eyes picture anytime until Monday and then on Tuesday the linky for water will open. Hope that's clear. x

  8. Big and beautiful, what a cutie! I am starting a photography course this week in the hope I can learn to take the photo that I see in my mind instead of what comes out so hopefully I will have some goodies to link up! x

    1. There is nothing worse than seeing a great photograph opportunity and then it not turning out ow you thought it would. I find what the more I have my camera in my hands, the better I am getting at catching the actual shot I'm after. Although when working with my little mini model most of it is just luck!!
      I'll look forward to seeing what you link up as you turn into a photo genius. X

  9. Oh my! With those eyes, I bet you have a hard time ever saying no!! My little monster also has gorgeous eyes (I would say that lol) so I may have to link up if I get a moment to be organised. xx

    1. He is just starting to learn the power of turning those big eyes on us. I'm sure he'll get away with murder if he really learns how to use them to his advantage. X

  10. Hi I have just found your blog and would love to join the linky. Your little man is stunning and sure to be a heart breaker when he's older! The HTML code for your badge comes up in the compose window for some reason. If you copy the code in the compose window, delete what is in the HTML window and paste the code from the compose window, you will get the badge. Got it? Clear as mud I'm sure! Sorry I'm not great at explaining things but hope it helps x

    1. Hmmmm, yeah, clear as mud. The badges all worked last week with exactly the same codes. I'll have a good look at them though for next week and see why they are misbehaving. X

    2. And yes, I think he will be a heartbreaker. Little monkey that he is, I may have to keep him locked up at home away from the girls. X

    1. They melt mine too, they make me wish I had brown ones to match. X

  12. He does have the most devine eyes! Just gorgeous.

  13. Beautiful big eyes and thank you so much for choosing me as the winner last week - very chuffed :)). I notice there's a few comments about badges and although your normal badge works for me I can't get the winners badge to work ( I just copied and pasted it into the post but would like to put it on my sidebar too !)

    1. The badges do seem to be misbehaving this week. But I think the main badge is only being a pickle on Wordpress blogs. I'll have a look at the code for the winners badge for you and I'll email it over to you so that you can use it in your sidebar. X

  16. I hope you don't mind but I entered twice! Seeing as my boy has temporarily blinded me and I've spent the day in the eye hospital I thought it was apt.

    1. Nope. Go for it. Sorry to hear that you've been under attack from a toddler. They are dangerous to be around sometimes. x
