Homer Simpson, is that you?

Robert said...

Guess you had to be there.

I could never find Waldo, either.

Come on, wind, rain, and ice. Erode some of that granite gut!

lucid said...

Ann, you really do take wonderful photos. I was also admiring your shot for the too-early cafe. The shapes and the angles of the masses and their colors made something ordinary into a beautiful image.

Ann Althouse said...

I'm seeing a facial profile, not a whole body thing. (Gross!)

Irene said...

I see George Washington: both as a facial profile and as a whole body thing.

What was that Charlie Brown line?

Big Mike said...

Looks like he's got eczema.

Reminds me of a photograph taken in the 19th century of a Plains Indian medicine man (Crow, Shoshone, Pawnee, can't remember), the topknot is exactly the way his hair was woven.

The head would be very weird, in that case.

PS Where are you? Why do I think Utah? Flowers, I guess.

There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust
.

I'm lichen it.

veni vidi vici said...

looks like satellite photography.

Lem said...

Face on Mars

Patm said...

Looks like Spike from Cowboy Bebop, to me.

MamaM said...

Nuts, Chip got there first...but I'm liking the lichen too, along with the great colors and texture present.

I needed something strong and silent on which to fix my attention after the babbling baby video.

My Doberman Susie found spirits in blowing curtains.

natatomic said...

I think it's shadow neanderthal.

Deborah said...

I'm seeing Elvis in that shadow.

Joe said...

Looks like the Cat in the Hat , to me.....but I'm not Lit-TRIT, like the rest of you'unz.

Cochise?

Dad Bones said...

Balfegor said it best.

knox said...

I see Michael Binkley from Bloom County.

Fred4Pres said...

Mouth to mouth to a dead possum?

Yeah, he was drunk.

Fred4Pres said...

It is just so weird it had to be posted.

Thanks for the rock shot. More rock shots. There is also a fabulous JFK profile rock in Sharm El Sheikh, but I can't find a picture of it.

hm said...

exactly, edutcher.

it's the mirror image of this edward curtis photograph.

That's no man, that's E.T.

Tom Nally said...

Oh, to have rocks. Actual rocks.

In deltaic New Orleans, there are no rocks. Well, at least there are no rocks on the surface unless they are hauled in from elsewhere, or brought up from an excavation.

Here, you cannot find an outcropping of rocks. Maybe an artificial outcrop built for a wildlife habitat at the zoo.

Very Mayan looking.

It's like the Milton Glaser Dylan poster.
