It's a little-known fact that when I was in college at the age of 20, I met Bette Davis.

She was really old (I thought), but very classy and refined with her age, in my silly opinion...

But .. I respected her. And she was... so gracious to us college kids.

Little did I know that she knew more than we. I wish I could go back and meet her again. I've have much better questions to ask her... one on one, as I had the opportunity to do then.


As we grow older... we respect "older" much more.


She's Got Bette Davis Eyes.

They know so much... *sigh*

Your outtake is lovely, but this one is so much nicer, I think! It's very real, very engaging. And very much all about the eyes!

Nice focus and soft falloff, suits the muted tones. The reflections in her eyes detract a bit, might have been nice with neat catch lights

She has beautiful eyes, I would have liked the lighting to be a little stronger to bring out her eyes.
