Unexpected Faces

Day before yesterday my friend Karen and I were out for lunch. On our way back to the car from the restaurant we walked past a store window and both of us came to a dead stop: “A face!”

Having no idea what the object actually was we went into the shop to inquire. We also asked if the owner would take it from the window so we could capture an image. The shop owner thought we were both mad! Turns out the object is a pair of automatic motion sensitive security lights with a camera (the proboscis). 

“That’s all you want? A picture?” How do you explain you see faces in all sorts of unlikely places. 

We took pictures and left.

Another security camera and light – I guess the idea is to capture images of unwanted visitors – both animal and human.

Later that night Karen and her husband headed north to their cottage. The next morning she saw another face – the cottage almost smiling because the snow is just about gone.

Yup. Faces everywhere!

While Karen and I were having lunch I noticed a small animal climbing the concrete facade of the apartment building across the street. Too far away and too small to get a photo. 

At first I thought it might be a squirrel but it seemed to lack a bushy tail so I concluded it was likely a small rat or large mouse. The animal stopped for a while beside an open window. I watched until a truck obstructed my view. When the truck moved away – rodent was nowhere in sight – I wonder if the occupants of the apartment with the open window came home to an unwanted visitor!

Maybe they need one of these security cameras beside their window?
