I’ve known my friend, L, for a bit over two years now. I can tell you about how tall she is and the color and length of her hair. I can tell you what shoes she prefers to wear, that she uses an iPhone and where she works. I could tell you quite a few things about her except for one – the color of her eyes. It wasn’t until the other day after having done a portrait session for her when I was looking at the uploaded pictures that I exclaimed “When did your eyes turn green?” Honestly, I would’ve told you they were dark like mine until this discovery. Now isn’t that interesting?
Guess that just goes to show you that even when you think you may know someone you may be missing out on something very obvious.
