What I saw in Barbara's image...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...this is Barbara's image which I have her permission to show, I have overlaid my immediate reaction to something I saw in it.
Years ago there was a very popular cartoon character Angus Og a "teuchter" from the Scottish Western Isles. The cartoon strip ran in the Daily Record where I worked and I knew the Artist Ewan Bane.
When I eventually got an image of Angus and managed the cut and paste onto Barbara's ( Barbarahirst )image it was well into the day. She enjoyed the laugh she wanted me to share it with everybody, so here it is.
The link to the original is by clicking on Barbara's name above.

Still can't believe how similar the ice pattern is to that cute looking cartoon character...
I wonder how many other things we could find in our surrounds if we were a bit more observant
Good eyes you have!

I wish we could vote on this for the humour... I understand why you've disabled voting, though, I think. A desire not to get votes for someone else's picture (very proper)?

I'm glad this is getting its moment in the spotlight. The similarity in profile with the ice character is amazing, but I did wonder if this was a self-portrait...

Very well observed - I saw the resemblance already on your last post (as V2) - I think, I would never have noticed this, even if I had known Angus. Smile
Great. And well pasted.
