    Ha-ha! Thanks, Meg – I thought it might appeal to the visual artists! 🙂

    Would we understand it more readily if it were turned through 90 degrees?

    John >>> Nah, you’d just negate the visual drama! (And don’t tell the grandkids there’s no Santa!) 😉

    Walking along Abercrombie beach, this well worn rock reminded me of a Seals head. Sculptured by the sea.

    Walking along the river at Betsy Coed. I have seen money thrown into wishing wells, but never inserted into a log.

    Love your “Seal’s Head”, Bob – it even appears to be crying!

    Well spotted Bob. 3 interesting shapes in which you’ve spotted something unusual. The shape of the red brick reminds me of roughly the shape of Africa or South America on its side. I like the texture in the second photograph.
    I’ve been out this morning and tried to find different ways in which to photography ordinary objects by using sun. shadows and querky angles. This assignment does make you think differently. Here are some more of my attempts:

    Thanks for some good entries Bob. What is everyone else doing?

    Hey! This sometimes happens in Forums. Just posted a response to Bob’s pictures and when it refreshed, there were Peter’s!

    Some really interesting posts on the forum. I like Robert Browns Seal photograph and his nod to the 70’s Art Establishments Bricks.

    Like Petes Bridge nice pattern with the lone figure as a full stop.

    Peter I didn’t see the image of South Africa till you mentioned it, surprising what other people see in a photo that you don’t see. The Seals head I wanted to take it home, the only problem was it weighed about 4 cwt. I like the angle you have photographed  the bike rack, considering the Sun is up you have exposed the sky very well.

    Thanks to all that have commented

    Bob.

    thanks for your comments on my efforts folks. I like the texture in your house plant Ian. You’ve handled the exposure well. Would it have worked better if there was some relevant background or is it better as it is with just a black background making the viewer concentrate on the subject?

    Thanks, Peter? I did the black background on purpose – more of my austere graphic simplicity, I’m afraid! 😉
