Portal of the Day #2352

I’ve wanted to take some shots like this for years. Pearce and Brittany helped me out tonight, lending their eyes and supplying light as I looked into the craters that their irises form.

From a distance, the colors in our eyes look like gemstones; when you look more closely, they become mountain ranges or fabric, all their subtle geometries suddenly inescapable.

Look at the creases toward the outer edge; look at the band of gold that lines Brittany’s pupil; look at the glow toward the left, where light has traveled across the cornea, skirted the event horizon, and emerged safe on the other side.

You are made of vast worlds. Don’t forget how magnificent you are.

you will know our names
