Faces on the beach



The first thing I need to say is that none of these was altered in Photoshop to create the faces — all were "as found" on the beach. It's weird. Some days you'll find no faces at all and on others, well, seems like you're being watched all the time. I particularly like the look and feel of the last photo, an angry raptor of some sort, complete with a highlight in the eye created by dried seaweed. Fun stuff, no?

Thank you for the :~) this morning! Nice to find "natural smiles" while walking about. Awesome capture of the sleeping giant raptor! Keep smilin'! :-)

So cool! I especially love the smiley face! (And I so hate the "real" ones...)

Thank you Jan, Stephan, and Diane. I used to think people who saw things like this were wackos. Now I is one. --CL
