My neighbour’s birthday last week. Her kids brought a cupcake for her birthday cake. She was saving it under this inverted mug – “face” was what I saw.
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.
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?
OK, so what is it?
I got sent this image the other day – an example of a found “face”. I can see the face quite clearly but didn’t recognize that I was actually looking at a crab carapace, probably picked up from the beach sand somewhere in Florida.
I’ve tried tracking down the crab species – the closest I’ve come is it’s likely a smallish stone crab. Many of the Florida crab species have a much wider carapace. Also most don’t have such a profusion of spines along the front (“head”) edge.
Whatever it is, I’ve added the image to my “faces” collection.
I wasn’t paying much attention to the ads on TV last night – can’t even remember what show was on, it was late, past midnight and I was just putting away my knitting before turning off the TV when this image came on the screen. I love the rewind feature on my PVR! I was able to scroll back and find the face that jumped out at me.
I don’t imagine Ford intended the face to be so graphic. I would actually be unable to sit behind the wheel of this car because it would greatly annoy me. I haven’t looked at my own vehicle – must do that to see whether it also has a face there as well as on the front of the car!
While walking the streets of San Francisco, I came across some “faces”.
The first has a long drooping moustache:
The second looks rather like a Chinese dragon:
Can you see them?
I wasn’t looking too hard this trip or I’m sure I’d have found lots more!
