My eyes are green!

On Saturday while doing a photo shoot with my talented friend Joel Blair,┬á I was asked ” How many people do you think have green eyes?”

Hmmmm?

My curiosity was instantly peeked. Honestly, I’ve never really thought about whether it was common or not. However, I have noted for quite some time that the majority of people I know have, to varrying degrees, either blue or brown eyes.

As soon as I got home I started googling it. I read online that only 2% of the world’s poplulation have green eyes. Woah! I had no idea. They say that it is an uncommon eye color to possess. However, gray, violet, and even red in some albino people are even more rare.

All of a sudden I’m feeling pretty lucky to have green eyes. Hehe!

Here’s a sneak peak of our shoot!

Here are some incredible shots of other people with amazing green eyes!
