image Bad Photo Monday : Weird Eyes

An annoying problem when taking pet photos.

I am sure most of you have seen this problem before. Red eye is bad enough but green eye looks downright weird as well.  Usually I either delete these or fix them in the photo editor. The only reason I took this photo of Cindy was because my laptop was knocked over and when I recovered it I found that my SD card, still in the reader  from the previous editing session looked bent. I was afraid it would not work any more so I put it back in the camera just to take this photo so I could upload it.

Thankfully although it was hard to get it out of the camera after the card is still readable. However with a noticeable bend in it I will retire it as soon as I can get another one. Luckily it was almost full anyway. I also took the precaution of backing up the card so that if it does fail I have all my original pictures as well as the edited ones.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.

  1. I have got some hillarious ones of Toby with the green eyes. He looks really evil. I’ll have to look for one and post it some time.
