This posting is as an example of the other side of the 'coin', so to speak. The photo analysis that goes on in the forum made me think about the picture.

I have a real photograph of a flower that appears to have a face.

The camera captured it in a different way than my eyes did. It is not a flower with a face, just appears to be. The subject was a plain old cone flower growing in the woods.

This photo was taken many years ago using a Pentax camera and Kodacolor film. The original is a 3X5 print. I took a picture of the photograph using a digital camera then used paintshop to crop this image out of the 2560X1920 jpeg. No, I did not use paintshop to make the face and I do not claim the flower had a face. Guess this is my 'face on mars'. (No disrespect implied, I am still open on that one)



The lesson I learned is that sometimes I cannot even trust what I have recorded on film.

Hey, that's my face!

Actually The Fortean Times has a nice simulacra photo in every issue, which should help remind people that just because they see the Virgin Mary in fried burrito it doesn't automatically equate to a supernatural or paranomal event. Our brains are built to see patterns in things, particularly human faces. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I love that. i know what you mean. even how you look at certain things once can be different a second time. angle and lighting have a lot to do with this. if you drop water over a sheet you cvan almost always find some silhoute of some sort of head in the waterstain. If you see shadows and stuff, always some cool shapes. That picture is nice i like it, and it's added meaning that you made it into. thanks for post. hope you are well, and have a great day. best of wishes!
