02.27.2015 Hidden in Plain Sight

What do you see here?  I am usually fairly literal with my photographic compositions.  Many photographers are pretty good at pulling something relatively unseen from the landscape or some component of what is present in front of them and creating something that isn’t really there.  For me, most often what I see is what I photograph but occasionally I see what is not there.

This is probably not as difficult to see as the face that was in a previous post, but still….what do you see?

    You’d better holster that thing, or you could risk shooting yourself in the foot. 🙂

  3. I see either a small bird with a very long tail. Or a large bird with snow on its head. Or, yes, what they said 🙂

    My first impulse was tadpole, but looking a little longer I’m seeing a hint of a barn owl face, which is very neat.

    • Yeah, a lot of folks have seen one owl or another like you, Jackson. Re the tadpole…At one point someone cropped the image to show me a small bird with a long tail. But, similar to a tadpole I guess, I saw a sperm.

    Your fine senator offered some comments about the weather. http://youtu.be/x5rwe5rI-ds?list=UUT1ujew5yQy2uMhGrjiKHoA

  6. Looking over all the comments it’s clear that I lack a great deal of imagination … I see a simple, though stylized, face. Looks like we might moderate just a bit after one more frigid night. How are you? D

    • Your imagination matches mine. I saw a fox with a wink, but others have seen several others.

      The last two days have been decent…..upper teens and low twenties but sunny. More sun to come but tonight below zero again. Snow Sunday night into Monday morning. Just when it seems to be showing signs of improvement we head back below zero.

    I must diverge (yet again, sigh) from the majority. My first impression was definitely of a fox. With some imaginative stretches, I can see what some of your other followers have imagined, with some exceptions. I’ll be diplomatic, however, and not enumerate. I have developed a category of natural face-like visages that I’ve seen, and have had great fun with my finds through the years.


  8. First I see an owl and, then if look sort of sideways, I see the face of a fox. At any rate it’s a cute way to get people to comment. I like your puzzler of pic.

  9. The end of your first paragraph reminds me of “Antigonish” by Huges Mearns, which begins:

    “Yesterday, upon the stair,
    I met a man who wasn’t there.
    He wasn’t there again today,
    I wish, I wish he’d go away…”

    Like constellations, we see whatever we want. Nicely done.
