This is our first submission for our call for faces article published on Monday.
Photograph by Michael Chess of Saegertown.
Mikey took this picture while on vacation in Kinzua dam The face was on the picnic bench at the campsite he was at with his family. He woke up in the morning and spotted the smiling face and took the picture with a Sony digital camera.
Here is the article again in case you missed it!
Do you ever lie on your back in the grass and look up at the clouds and start to see things like bunny rabbits or dogs? Or even better, a cloud that looks like a dog chasing a cloud that looks like a bunny?
A few years ago a student at Allegheny College, Sonja DeJong, did a final project in her photography class where she took pictures of a series of found objects and scenes that she thought resembled faces.
“I see them everywhere,” she told the class during final critique.
Since that day, Meadville Tribune photographer Richard Sayer will occasionally send her a photograph of a face that he saw in something inanimate. Sayer was the instructor in that photo class and the two have managed to stay in touch through this funny little project.
We at the Tribune thought it might be fun to ask our readers to keep their eyes open for these “faces” — and if they see them, to snap a photo and send it to us. Who knows? We might publish it on our website and if it is super-eye catching and interesting, perhaps even find a place for it in the paper.
To submit, email your images to email@example.com with this information: name of photographer and location where taken, including town and a short sentence or two about how you discovered the face and what you used to take the picture (i.e.. cell phone, dslr or film camera). The photographs should be at least 6 inches at 200 dpi and they should be .jpg. If you’re unsure of the resolution, try it and we’ll get back to you if it doesn’t work.
