Macro

Keep your Bearings

Rebel Girl built a light box and spent at least a day and a half on it. Tonight while she looked through her ornaments I took over.

It’s All In My Head

When I look at something I often see objects or faces. There is a name for this affliction Pareidolia. It is a type of illusion or misperception involving a vague or obscure stimulus being perceived as something clear and distinct.

I am guilty of this everyday. I don’t take it as far as Apophenia. The spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena. Well I might but only for a second . 🙂 Some have suggested they are evolution carry overs. I think DNA of creative people have a lot of evolution carry overs. When I look at this first picture I see a big head. Inside of the head I see cloaked being, a woman, a man, another man and something in a space or bio hazard suit. A bird and a partial face. That is a lot to take out of a water droplet.All in my head
Here is the full picture of snowflakes caught in a spider web as they melt. What a nice way to relax on a Sunday afternoon.
