  1. The title for your sleeping giant photo reminded me of the rock formation in Ireland that is called the giants stepping stones or something like that.

    Sorry I can’t help you in the word department (that is one of my flaws– I never can find the correct word).

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I think the word you are looking for is “artist”! :) The closest thing I found to labeling this talent was Theodore Lipps’ “theory of empathy.”

  3. Sleeping giant really looks like a sleeping giant! It’s Memorial Day weekend here. I’m off to wine taste with a bunch of girl friends. Have a terrific long weekend!

  4. In the top photo I saw a lion’s head (female) and a pig’s head. Don’t know what that’s called, but as a child I spent hours in the summer laying on my back seeing things in the shapes of the clouds. We spent some summers in places where there wasn’t a whole lot more to do than stare at the clouds.

  5. There is a piece of land by the Golden Gate Bridge that I was told is a Native American Chief with a headdress laying over the water. It is impossible for me to see that piece of land without seeing the Chief, but when I show it to others some can’t see it. I stand there and go, “but that’s the nose and the neck…” .

    Pareidolia! Yes, I am guilty of pareidolia.

    • This is an instance where I wish there was a gadget to show what’s going on in my head, to see what I’m seeing. Someone, please work on that! If we ever get back to SF (and I plan that we will) you’ll have to tell me where I can see this. It sounds great.

  6. I’m not going to share what shapes I can see in those rocks, but then I always have had quite a vivid imagination. lol. Great shots though and they work perfectly in black and white…

  7. Yep, we’re celebrating Memorial Day in the US this weekend– 3 day vacation :-)

    So glad you shared these photos. I’m a big fan of black and whites done well, and these are done very well. The texture is so rich.

    Enjoy the weekend.

    • Thanks – It’s nice to hear that Joanna. Black and white is not my usual choice so it’s not something I feel very comfortable with – I’m a bit of a colour addict. :)
