In your face (2)

May 8, 2022

Over at the Ragtag Daily Prompt the word of the day is FACES.

Some faces just don’t want to be seen.

Some faces look at your face in a manner that would suggest anger while wondering why your face is looking at their face.

Merriam Webster defines pareidolia as the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.

Like animals or ice cream castles in clouds or faces in things. I love pareidolia because I see faces in all sorts of things and it’s a lot of fun finding them and taking pictures of them. I have hundreds of pictures of faces I’ve seen in random things and here are a few of them below. I also blogged about pareidolia once some years ago and that’s here.

A pot of spaghetti.

The rubber base of a security fence.

Canned meat.

A desk stapler.

“I know faces, because I look through the fabric my own eye weaves, and behold the reality beneath.” – Kahlil Gibran, Faces
