If Trees Could Talk

I think we've all looked at the fluffy white clouds in the sky as kids (maybe even now) to see animal shapes or faces forming and floating apart.
Trees can have the same effect with the way bark grows or possibly tell a story with what we see.
Enlarge for full effect
Is it our vivid imagination or is there a grotesque face in the tree on the left?  The one on the right is what appeared after a large branch was cut away.  Perhaps not another face, but certainly an interesting tale to tell.

  5. The tree on the left does have a rather frightening face, but perhaps a heart of gold lurks beneath the bark.

  6. Hi Judith,
    I definitely see the face on the left. I often look at trees and try to find an image there. I've done that since I was a little girl. When I'm on the beach, I watch the clouds. It's very relaxing... I'm funny that way!
    I will be sending Laura Childs 'Scones and Bones' out to you in the mail this week. Just thought I would let you know.
    Hope you're having a wonderful Mother's day!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  15. Hi Judith, What a grotesque, twisted face appears in that tree bark - if we use our powers of observation, and slow down, there is much to behold in nature. Have a great week!

  17. Yes, I see a one-eyed face with a twisted mouth and, on the right, I see a snake coiling and fat. Hmmm...have a diagnosis for me? =D I also love to see patterns and objects in the folds of curtains at the window or shadows along the wall.

  20. It does look like a face on the left.
    Thanks for stopping by. I took the pics around 3:30 or 4 PM and the lighting created some interesting shadows. I used a point and shoot and had better luck with that camera than the one I have now.
    Have a great week.
