Table Creature

Three minutes before sunset, 7:57 p.m. PDT, I came across a discarded table that piqued my interest, because the thing reminded me of an animal. You disagree? Be a kid for 10 seconds, put on your seeking-creatures-in-the-clouds mind, and take another gander.

The clinical term for finding animals, faces, and the like in clouds or other objects is Pareidolia. I’m not sure that applies to this table, for which no specific beast comes to my mind. Rather, I see something inanimate that could come to movement, when looking at the spacing of the legs and what could be a head sticking from the flat board body.

The wood is in rough condition, which color rendition would profoundly reveal. Fortunately, I carried Leica Q2 Monochrom; surface texture adds character, and even charm, in black and white. Vitals for the Featured Image: f/3.2, ISO 200, 1/80 sec, 28mm.
