Talk To The Lime

This is my brother Mike shopping at Trader Joe's in Portland, Oregon.

Amazingly, he found this lime with an incredible likeness of ME on the peel! He's going to auction it off on eBay starting at $1,000 dollars. Bid early. The high bidder will receive complete instructions on how to preserve this once in a lifetime gem.

Seeing Double?

Mike sent these in to me. They were found by him in two separate locations and yet they are almost identical in size and shape. Both photos resemble a hand carved pipes. Using your imagination, what do you see? In the top photo, I can make out a pirate's head carved in the bowl looking back towards the stem.

In this second photo, I see another face looking back towards the stem. But it has changed on me twice. First I saw what resembled a lion's head with the mane blowing back in the wind. Then I saw a jolly old man with a full beard with his hair also blowing back. Maybe he's the God of The Wind?

Seeing Things

I see the face of a man wearing a fedora. You might have to squint a little...

Seeing Things

Part of the original premise for this blog being named "Seeing Things" was an idea given to me by mouse (aka kimy) of the Lakewood Daily Snap. I began seeing images in inanimate objects (like the Virgin Mary in a bagel, Jesus in a tree trunk, etc.) and photographed them. This latest image is either a Singing Nun or a Chrome Panther. It is actually the top of my cork puller's lever:

Some of you have seen the next two. This little thing I call the Metallic Frog:

And the Ghost Bag in the waste basket:

My latest image of seeing things is a Happy Asian Factory Worker. The end of a tissue box I began to recycle:

Mike's Cat, Lady

This is a highly stylized photo of Mike L's cat, Lady. Mike and I were inspired by a surrealistic illustration of a glowing cat with electric blue eyes. He asked me to make something similar so I came up with this Photoshopped rendition. Lady is actually a light gray and white, long haired cat with a sweet disposition.

Berea Falls

This urban waterfall is located in Berea, Ohio in the Rocky River Reservation. The fall consists of two main drops and a couple smaller drops totaling 25 feet. There is a lookout above the falls.

Surprisingly, there are a number of nearby urban waterfalls in the Greater Cleveland area that are easy to get to and are much more scenic.

Summer Into Fall

The Hilliard Bridge over Rocky River divides Lakewood from the City of Rocky River in our majestic Metro Parks: Rocky River Reservation. The summer photo was taken in July and from the exact same spot, the fall photo was taken in late October. By matching the two photos on top of one another and animating the opacity, one watches the dramatic change of the seasons.

While changing batteries in this tiny flashlight, I noticed this image resembling "The Terminator".
