Um, yours? If so, how did you create that translucent "beaded" effect? Give us the story behind the picture.

Yep, mine. The face is on a bench across the street from my apt. It's about as big as my palm. I thought it looked kind of eerie.

It is eerie. On a bench? So is an advert pasted to the bench, and the "bubbling" effect created by deterioration of the display ad or is that effect in the original advert photo/graphic itself?

What face? All I see is some kind of mesa!

Anon.--

It's actually a 3-D concrete face. The "bubbling" is simply imperfections in the casting magnified by my camera.

Aha! Thanks for the explanatory!

A piece of urban street art--there was a period I used to occassionally see similar arty-facts placed in random locations in Berkeley, often near Telegraph Ave, most oddly abstract painted wooden pieces above eye level, which I enjoyed the concept of a great deal. 8^}

Then, apparently some folks got greedy, and started stealing or taking them down. Sad. *^p

That really used to roast my toast!

Hmmm...maybe I ought to begin a new tradition up here in the neo-con suburban enclave I reside in at the moment. Gotta have the funk. Or make some of my own...
