Battle of blue vs brown

Battle of blue vs brown

Here’s a portrait of Sebastian from early May. He was a little sleepy, but his blank, wet, wide open eyes reveal an amazing play of colours. The ring of deep blue that dominated his eyes when he was born is gradually being  pushed out of the way by a ring of brown spreading out from his pupil. There’s no doubt he inherited his mother’s eyes, both in size and colour. Her’s, however, were were brown from she was born; here, the brown has to assert dominance over the blue in a long drawn out war of positions. It seems inevitable, though, that the brown shall win; to the blue belongs but certain defeat, though not without honour, holding out so long against the dominant brown allele.

Eyes

Sebastian is now more than four months old, but his eyes are still of indeterminate colour, though leaning brown. What they do have, however, is very nice definition, which comes out in this b/w conversion.

This architectural detail featuring maple leaves forms the bottom of a moulding that frames a window arch on a building at the University of Western Ontario. It is a recurring feature on all the buildings at the university built in the neogothic style. This is an HDR composite from three images.

Picture of the gorgeous, Gothic stain glass windows of Conron Hall in University College, the oldest building at the University of Western Ontario. Conron Hall is without a doubt the most beautiful lecture theatre on campus; for a second, you will be forgiven for thinking you have walked into Hogwarts.
