I have brown eyes.
Five out of my six children have brown eyes, ranging in shade from greenish brown to nearly black, but still brown nonetheless.
My husband has blue eyes which in a metrosexual moment that we never let him live down, he described as slate.
Our little Addy somehow got the mix of genes that have given her vivid blue eyes. I still find it slightly odd when she looks at me with them - they feel so unfamiliar.
To capture the image for this week's Gallery I experimented with my macro lens, which was a lot less tricky than trying to get Addy to sit still and open her eyes for 5 seconds!
