Assignment #4: Photograph a face that mysteriously appears

watermelon_man.jpg

This is one of the things I love most in life-when a face magically appears in your food, in the clouds, in the cracks in the concrete. A while back, I wrote about Cheese Dog, a St. Bernard made of gorgonzola I found in my salad one night. Then there was the Orchid Oracle... Today, it was a watermelon Hundertwasser.

I realized that my spam blocker doesn't allow links in the comments section. Instead, I will create a little group photo pool in flickr each week for you to add your photos. Here is the link for this week's challenge.

BTW: If you're not familiar with Hundertwasser's work, you're in for a treat. Here is a nice selection of his paintings and architecture.

I wonder how many faces appear in our food that we never even notice before we gobble down?

I just discovered your blog and love it. As I rolled down I couldn't believe that there is a photo of Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
Send you many greetings from Vienna,
Andrea

Ahhhh. KunstHausWien is one of my favorite places. It's a place where it is impossible to be in a bad mood. Thank you for the little reminder (and a tinge of "home"sickness).

Oh do come to NZ. We'd love to welcome you. Not only do we have the odd bit of amazing architecture but we trip over penguins on the beach!

I adore you. I truly do.

Hmmm...

"Hundertwasser" means "100 waters" in German, and he chose to appear in a watermelon (wassermelon?). Coincidence? . . . you decide.

The greatest thing to me about Hundertwasser's buildings is that they contain no straight lines. The floors gently undulate and seep up the walls. Trees sprout from the floors. A visit to his Kunsthaus in Vienna was really a life-changing event for me.

I would love to see his work in NZ, where he did indeed live for many years. ( I'd love to see NZ for so many reasons!)

There is also a new winery in Napa, California designed by him. I can't wait to see it...

The Hundertwasser toilets at Kawakawa (Northland, New Zealand) and both one of my favourite things in the world, and the sign that I am only about an hour away from my dearest old people. NZ is so lucky tht he chose to live here for a while.

That's one of my favorite things!--When faces and other things appear like that (I figure it happens because of a creative person's brain pattern/face recognition survival mechanism) I have a whole fun collection of faces I've spotted all over as well as great stuff from other pareidola fans! Gotta do a Flickr set of some of them and link at your cool pool!

That's a rather devilish piece of watermelon!

Hundertwasser! My friend (who's also obsessed with Vienna) loves his work and has a beautiful print in his apt - probably 5 ft. long.
