First off, thanks so much again to CarolG for her UA on my kamikaze fly
And thanks for the lovely comments, people.
Now then…here’s another case of the unexpected. Not to do with timing this time, but rather a face in the crowd. Or half a face.
9.53am on Sunday. I looked out the living room window and loved the look of the heliconia leaves catching the morning sun. I grabbed the cam for one of those “just for me” shots since I don’t reckon a shot like this would hold much interest for anyone else. Stuck the cam through the window grille and *click*.
On the LCD, I saw the half face – so clear and distinct (actually a dried leaf, I discovered). Like half of an Ultraman type mask. And that’s when I decided that the pic was EPZworthy…lol.
Now I’d initially meant to crop in close and then mirror and paste to complete the face. In the end I went with straightening and mirroring the whole image…and I’m glad I did. ‘Cos then I noticed the legs of the masked man as he leaps into the air and does a split with his skinny arms pointing down.
He also seems to be wearing puffy sleeves but I don’t know what that’s about. And he’s wearing a chain whose pointy pendant seems to be aligned with his crotch so he might wanna be careful with that.
I shall name him Heliconia Man, and he shall marshall the garden with fair leaves but a firm trunk.
PS…V2 is the original image.
