11.10.2019 What do you see?

I noticed this rock formation in Adams Brook some time ago as I drove between Shutesbury and Amherst.  It’s near the Robert Frost Trail crossing on Shutesbury Road in North Amherst. I still haven’t got quite the composition I want for the brook as it passes here, but I did think this would make a nice abstract.  There are a few ways to interpret it.  What’s yours?  🙂

  2. My first thought was an alligator, mouth wide, about to devour some unsuspecting photographer.

  3. The wide-open mouth is a given, but what kind of animal it belongs to is up for grabs. Likewise open to interpretation is whether what’s inside the mouth is the creature’s tongue or prey getting devoured.

  9. Jaws ready to grab something. A rather ominous looking rock, jutting forth as a good study for using ones imagination.

    I’m sort of philosophically opposed to seeing things like funny animals in landscapes, clouds, etc., but you’ve done a good thing here, giving and getting plenty of chuckles. So I’ll just step back and keep quiet. 😉

    Whatever it is, I think it’s sticking it’s tongue out at you – *sound effect* – pbbbbt! 🙂

    Well, I’m in favor of seeing ‘things’ in nature, and have been since those long, lazy childhood afternoons when we gave up bike riding and spent hours lying in the grass, looking for creatures in the clouds.

    I saw this a couple of days ago, and came to my own conclusion immediately — it’s a laughing dog! See its crinkled eye, almost hidden by the smile wrinkles?

    • I’ll partake in it from time to time. I didn’t do much cloud-gazing as a kid so maybe I am making up for that when I do “see things”.
      I knew I could count on you to see something no one else would see. Including me. But, yes, there is is, cute as can be. There is a store here in town, Laughing Dog Bicycles. 🙂
