So here are the Part 2 pics from my ride yesterday. I did go for a short ride today, since the weather was beautiful again, but I did not ride slow and look for faces. I just pedaled and soaked up the sun and tried not to puke. So see what you think of these:
EXTRA CREDIT – THE EXPERIENCE ESSAY
Now for this next bit, you are going to need to play the video below.
I do believe this may be the worst earworm song of all time (actually, The Proclaimers 500 Miles has been given the title, but this is the worst for me). You hear this once, and the freakin’ thing is in your head for weeks or months. It will drive you nuts.
This is a bit like this challenge. When first introduced, I was a bit worried. Whenever people see things in clouds or rock formations, I usually struggle to see what they see. I could not, off the top of my head, think of any faces on my local rides. So I was thinking that Professor Greg’s teaching assistant, The Feeshko, was going to need to do an online tutorial for those of us needing some extra instruction.
But then I started looking. And now I have an ‘eye worm’. I can’t not see those stinkin’ faces! Everywhere I look, there’s another one! They are freaking everywhere!!
They’re even in my house:
So goodness, make it stop! I must confess, though, that it is much easier to see faces when you are at walking pace. Normal riding pace doesn’t allow you to see that detail as you focus on the road surface and traffic. Most of the ones I’ve featured, I saw on my 2 km walk to the grocery store, noted where they were, and then went back to capture them on a bike ride.
Finding full faces with eyes and mouth, or eyes, nose and mouth is a little more difficult than finding partial faces. Eyes on their own are absolutely everywhere. But it is a little harder to find the full monty. Sometimes you get so close….
And sometimes you have to make your eyes/brain not make sense of what it wants to make sense. For example, in the pic below, your eyes really want to read those words and not see the text as a block of white that is an eye. I’ve outlined where the eyes, nose and mouth are…. before this challenge, I would not have seen that face. Good god, now I see them everywhere. What a curse.
Next week’s weather forecast has rain forecast Monday through Friday, so I’m not sure how much riding will get done. I also get my second Pfizer shot next week, and my immune dysfunction means that dose might cause me some issues. So this might be it for a bit. Happy hunting!
