It has a name!

In my last post I mentioned that my eyes do something weird in photos... you can see the whites under my irises (maybe in real life too... I haven't noticed because I can't see myself).  Well I didn't realise this was a thing until a work colleague picked it up in this photo which is on my classroom door:
And it's the same in almost all of my photos.

So of course I googled it - and wikipedia told me this is called Sanpaku and is usually found in people who over-consume drugs, alcohol or sugar (ok so I've never touched drugs or alcohol...but sugar on the other hand...hmm). It's also seen as an indication of mental imbalance. Oh dear!
