This is for Hugh’s Weekly Photography Challenge, with this week’s theme being Faces. But not faces where you would expect to find them – rather, faces that appear unexpectedly.
Like this rock.
I found it on a beach in Ireland, on the northwest coast where the Atlantic rolls in and the rocks are filled with fossils. I don’t think him a fossil, unless a pixie decided to leave his smile etched into rock for all eternity, but I did think his wry expression worth capturing.
I can see a few other faces on the pebbles in this photo, Helen, including the face of ET on that large pebble at the back. That’s a great capture for this week’s challenge.
ET phone home! I think I see where you mean, on the right hand side? That’s really cool – I only thought I was submitting one face, and now I have two 🙂
I was thinking top central, Helen. I’ve since managed to find another three faces amongst those pebbles and rocks.
That is one cool rock. Great shot, loads of texture and shape.
Thanks, Jack 🙂 I didn’t want to take him from the beach, but I knew I needed to take a photo of him at least.
I see the face. I can’t quite work out his expression, though. Worried? Shy? I feel like he has some bad news to tell me, for some reason.
Oh no! I hope that’s not the case 🙂 He does have quite an unusual expression – I think that’s why I took his photo. And I agree, it can be interpreted in many ways.
He’s quite a mysterious stone. The strong silent type, I imagine.

Congratulations Helen, I have featured your entry to my recent photo challenge on my blog.
Thank you so much for participating.
Thanks, Hugh – that’s wonderful! 🙂
I can see several faces on these pebbles, but the mischief one is the best!
Thanks – it is a cheeky face, isn’t it?
That’s pretty good!
Thank, Ericka – I couldn’t resist taking the photo 🙂
He’s my new favourite rock/face! 🙂
Haha, thank you 🙂 He is rather funny, isn’t he?
