Here is the usual thread. Disucuss until you are blue in the face; LOL (Pun intented)

I will check in to see if you have any questions until the first picture appears, after that you will have to PM if you need anything further.

Hey.. That is so cool.

I remember when the first pictures of Mars came back from NASA, and you could see the image of a face. I watched a tv show where a reporter explain that one of the first things we see as babies, is a face,and in the first few weeks of life, faces are very important, and leds to our first smile. It was explained that we can often see images of faces in things, because it comes from our first impressions of life, and in a deep sence, faces leave deep imprints on us, all our lives.

I remember as a kid, falling asleep looking at Gramma's wallpaper of tiny flowers, and finding funny and strange looking faces in among the flowers.

Of course I have no idea how I could photograph that! Oh well, that old farm house is gone anyway. I am on an adventure now...looking for faces that are lurking at me from the unknowns.

You lot will have the mental torture of constantly looking for faces everywhere for the next fortnight. I went through it this morning so I can stop squinting now. Looking forward to seeing Obama in a yoghurt pot, etc.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

Hmmm, I think I'll run PSE's face detection thing on my entire catalogue and see what it finds.

I remember someone posting a photo where the "face defection" on the camera recognize a face win a building, are you hoping for something like that

I do not think that would be finding a face in something. I assume you mean taking a silhouette of a person???? However you could alway PM Darlene and ask.

I do not know how I saw so many faces peering out at me as a kid.....I am going nuts looking for them these past few day! SIGH!!!

No not of people!!!! I kind of understood the WHOLE point of this one was NOT to have faces to make a face.

A view of something inanimate that is akin to a face side view, might have been a better way of expressing it.

Well that is me done - I had intended to spend 10 days or so 'looking for a face' but then along came the humerous soup, so I seized the opportunity
