I see faces (Not a Portrait Group)


This is fun. Apart from the humour in seeing faces in mundane objects, it’s a great way to train your photographic eye to see as well as look.

It’s all down to a basic human instinct to recognise patterns, wherever they appear. There’s even a word for it—pareidolia. Your humble scribe has joined the group, and has posted a few images to the pool. She will also continue to enjoy seeing faces, not portraits, in the world around her.

At the close of the day


I got some funny looks from the neighbours as I was hopping about taking a series of shots of what, to them at least, looked like an overcast sky.

Perhaps I’m finally beginning to “see” things properly. Over the past couple of days, I’ve spotted photographic opportunities which I would have missed before.

The passing airliner was a bonus. And, yes, I admit to a bit of post-processing to make the whole thing a bit more dramatic than it actually was.
