    Apophenia is a term that describes seeing pattern where there isn’t any; pareidolia is a subset of apophenia where one sees faces or shapes that don’t actually exist. On the other hand, it could just be faerie. However you describe it, I see them everywhere. 🙂 These are a few from a shoot the other day.

    Thanks, folks. I particularly like the first one.

    This is one of my favourites – shot in 2010 with a Fuji 10MP camera… The skulls of a woman and her bear companion, found at Qualicum Beach, BC
