For reasons that are unknown to me my smartphone selected a group of photos of eyes this afternoon. I assume I had inadvertantly selected a voice control search when discussing someone with shifty eyes. I suppose it could have been worse.
Not one of the following eye pictures, apart from perhaps the first, is remotely shifty.
I’m going to share them in the order they appeared and try to remember the location and event they represent.
Above is me on a New Years Eve looking shifty.
The next is Hugo and Hannah with almost perfectly matched profiles.
A dragon at Chinese New Year in Hong Kong.
Graffiti near Waterloo Bridge London.
Lola in February 2016.
Che Guevara, graffiti just outside Havana.
Three cows at the Royal Cornwall Show 2012.
A judge at The Royal Cornwall Show 2012.
Two more cows , as above.
Two @theoldmortuary paintings.
And finally a barely-there eye from the Lambeth Country Fair at Brockwell Park.
Now none of these seem to me to be remotely shifty but since I had inadvertantly confused my phone I thought I would look up ‘ Shifty eyes’
Apart from words it seems the internet is not too clear on exactly what a shifty eye looks like. Beyond cartoons shifty eye seems to be intangible so maybe my phone can be forgiven for giving me pretty normal eyes. However I never did ask it to search for eyes of any sort so that action still remains a mystery.
