love those eyes....those captivating eyes.

Thank you for that lovely remarks.

Perhaps I was visualizing a better world, with full of hopes, love and peace for the entire humanity. 1944, was the year, just made the super powers to introspect what might be the possible solutions, to create a better world apart from fighting a machanized war !

I hope those were the beautiful thoughts behind my eyes !

love those eyes

Your eyes were captivating!
Do you remember what you were focusing on?
Such a beautiful child thank you for sharing it with us
