New challenge and I have sat on this one for quite a while but I decided to finally throw it in there.

Pareidolia at it's simplest, seeing faces in inanimate objects. Have a look at Wikipedia for a more in depth description but there are a number of objects that can represent this. I will name a few simple examples such as a USB plug or a Pansy flower (even if they do look a bit grumpySmile). This is a good topic for small objects but can encompass larger subjects also.

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Wednesday.
4. Images must be B&W (or sepia toned).
5. Only one upload per member (or Malc gets busy deleting earlier entries).
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. If you're gonna go, go with a smile. (Jack Nicholson, Batman)

For new participants - please be aware that should you win, you will need to set a new challenge and judge it after 'closing time' the following Wednesday.

The doors of the Aquatic Centre at the Olympic Park, Stratford. Just happened to be walking around there today - I'm not usually this prompt.

I pass this chap every day. He stands at the side of our close, and is there every day in all weathers. I have yet to find out what his job is, and he doesn't have a uniform or company logo, so impossible to know...

Okay back again and this week went rather well. Quite a few different faces and I am going to find it challenging to pick a winner here.

As per usual now in order of appearance:

Chris - Now that's a big smile you've got there, very good use of the doors along with the bench thingy.

Phil Definitely a few faces in there. I bet with all those trolls around the billy goats gruff will not come anywhere near.

Malc Yet another well seen subject. I bet with that dent at the top he must have a bit of a headache.

Somnath - Yes that does meet the theme and shows the simplest of places where a face can be seen.

Dave It looks like he's having a peek to see if the coast is clear before climbing out all the way.

Alison (IL...All Hail) Another well spotted image and he looks like he's just had the snip.

Well there are a good range of emotions captured in these images and I was going to try and assign one to each but it would have taken me ages and prolonged your agony. All in all I think I should have posted this theme sooner but am pleased I did it now.

Okay my choice of this weeks winner, and a difficult decision it is, is Phil with the Trolls. There are a few faces to be seen there and a few more if you go in close.

So well done to Phil and many thanks to everyone for taking part and making it another good week!! Smile
