Now for something completely different: eye color
I've had a difficult time deciding what my eye color is, but it appears to be hazel, which (for eyes) is a combination of green and light brown instead of the color of hazel nuts, which it is named for. I think eyes that are the color of hazel nuts are called amber, and so there is some confusion for me.
Here's a photo of my eyes, showing multiple colors, which is what is confusing to me
This photo was taken in fairly bright light, so that my pupils are small, but in dim light, the light brown or amber color is more dominant, therefore making it more difficult for me to decide what color my eyes are. I used to think they were olive green, but that would be a solid color.
How did hazel (which technically means light brown) come to describe multicolored eyes? My driver's license has my eyes listed as hazel because I did not know what else to call them, but to my mind, hazel means light brown.
Please share photos of your own eyes, if you have them.
What color would you call my eyes?
I know this is frivolous, but I thought it might be fun.
