Faces in Places

According to Wikipedia, Faces in Places is a photoblog that features (as the author describes) photographs of faces found in everyday places. The featured photographs consist of inanimate objects that a viewer would perceive as representing a face. This perception is a type of pareidolia - perceiving random stimuli as significant, or anthropomorphism - people attributing human qualities to a non-human being or object.

The Faces in Places blog was launched on Monday, April 23, 2007, with a photo of a crane that resembles a grasshopper. Prior to this, the editor had started to encourage people with a similar interest in anthropomorphic images to submit them to a Flickr group. The Flickr group is now the main source of images used on the blog. The blog continues to be updated daily. Here's a selection of our favorite 'Faces in Places' images were taken by film cameras.
