Mise-En-Scène is a weekly bookish photography challenge created by What She Reads & Word Revel. To join in the fun, just take a bookish photo in correspondence to that week’s theme, and then link up your post. The challenge takes place on Fridays. I think it's a fun way to kick off the weekend, no?
This week’s theme is “eyes.” At first, I had no idea what direction I would take with that theme. Eyes and books? I couldn’t stop envisioning the spell book from Hocus Pocus: “Booooook, come to mummy!” But, alas, I don’t have access to a photo-op such as that one.
So, I walked over to my shelves for the next best thing, and lo and behold— inspiration struck in the form of various eyes staring back at me from the spines of my books.
- George Orwell’s 1984
- Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go
- Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone
- Alison Goodman’s Eon: Dragoneye Reborn
I threw in my favorite pair of cat-eyed frames for good measure. Don’t they look like they were plucked straight from the pages of The Far Side?
Did you participate in this week’s Mise-En-Scène? I’d love to see your bookish photos. If not, I’ll just leave you with this:
