From Eyevertising to Blindsight

 - Jan 10, 2009
Our eyes work to give us information about the world around us. They help us to understand our environment and express our emotions. Just as dogs use smell to make sense of their world, humans use their eyes.

Between one-quarter and one-third of the human brain is used for sight. We are able to recognize and distinguish subtle patterns, quickly interpret words in print or tell the difference between tree types by identifying the leaf and bark patterns.

When we meet someone, eyes are often our first frame of reference. You know the old storyline, "their eyes met across the room..." Our eyes unite, inspire, define, guide, and even deceive us.

The following collection is for your eyes, and hopefully your mind, and your funny bone too.
