Pictures Tell Stories–Faces in Photos

Most newborns learn to focus first on their mother’s face. The human face is so important to us, we see faces even where there are none. My subconscious seems to bring them out of patterns in the carpet or the curtains or in light and shadow on a wall. It’s fun to use the camera to capture some fanciful images, and even more satisfying to capture the emotions on the human face.

A face by the trail…
Look! It’s a gnome!
A not-so-happy woodland creature
Faceless but happy in Arizona!

Disguised as a tree

Not a face, but a shadow-angel in the Grand Canyon
Real faces express wonder.
Or interest…

Or a lifetime of memories…
Or pride.

All it takes is being in the right place at the right time…every photographer’s greatest joy.
