Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces II


Faces..
“A Pareidolic Face”

Moon looking like tron on flagpole
TRON

Yes this is what I was doing when I was out the back of my house with a full moon and a flag pole and all of a sudden they took on a ” TRON” persona; well that is what I called it.  Hope  you can see my face in the image I decided on today.
This is the full moon just recently.  I even videoed this same scene and made the moon move along the bar like a ball.   It was a crude amateur video and an after thought.

Pareidolia is patternicity, matrixing or cognitive illusion.  There are many schools of thought on the subject.  Too many to discuss in this post.

I have “Pareidolia”.  Why?  This is when we see faces in clouds or electric sockets or in cars or any other obscure place for a face.  This occurs because of the general shape of the grill and lights etc.  This is pareidolia.    Because I spend a lot of time looking at everything that is going on around me with expectancy, I tend to see these images often.   When I bring this to the attention of others,  they do not share my enthusiasm.   Quite often I am left feeling a little silly.  Despite the dispute from my peers,  I still see enjoying watching out for the next quirky image that jumps out at me.

Pareidolia refers to the human habit of looking for the familiar in the unfamiliar.

    • It is awesome hey! I was just standing there taking the moon and it just happened and I was really funny as i said taking it i was shaking with excitement! The vid is funny as where the moon rolls along the bar coz i move it! wordpress wouldnt accept the format not sure what to do other wise i would have put it up as well! for fun!

  4. Awesome sight you captured! I learned something new…I have “Pareidolia”. I’ve always liked looking up at the clouds and seeing familiar shapes in them. Glad to know there is a name for it. 🙂

I am honoured you have given me your time, plz say g'day!
