    i wouldn’t call it creepy.
    but these eyes speak a lot. he surely had a hidden agenda. most likely he wanted to know about you or had the wish to communicate with you.
    and of course, i could read a lot more in his eyes…
    great capture, lighting etc.
    creepyness is added by the background, if you cut it off, curiosity remains.
    may i ask what happened after you took the photo?

    excellent Mike, I love how the light falls on him, this is not creepy but despite his young age, he has a character about him

    Know what you mean.

    Puts me in mind of Damien from the Omen films. I’m guessing he’s just a bit intense!

    I don’t think it’s just you – makes me wonder what those young and very much not so young eyes have seen…
    A brilliant portrait!

    Not just you, but his eyes look so much “older” than his body. Great shot though
