52 Weeks Of Donna's Life

Donna's Photo Challenge

15. Faces in Everyday Places (Pareidolia)


0Y3B2162Biohazard Sign++

While waiting in the pre-op with my husband, I saw medical personnel tossing contaminated articles into a rather large receptacle marked with the familiar “biohazard” sign. Used bandages, rubber gloves, thermometer covers, etc. were dispatched to this box. I realized I was staring at it because I perceived a rather sinister face within the converging circles. It is a sinister looking face with scowling eyes and eyebrows extending into what appeared to me to be devilish horns. A bulbous nose had a malevolent looking extended mustache right below it. Whoa! Maybe I am spending too much time looking at it. Does this fall into the category of subliminal suggestion? (Note: The picture shown here was taken in another part of the hospital.)

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
