Face - 顔

Vespers Cafe, Brightwater, Tasman, New Zealand

Nikon D200
Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F2.8 XR Di II @ 50mm
F4.5, 1/60, ISO-160


  1. That's a good find Ben. The face has me searching and wondering what the expression means ... a shy smile? satisfaction? ... a mystery to ponder. Framed by the leaves and placed against the geometric pattern of the wall, it all adds up to an effective decorative image. It certainly holds your interest for quite a while.

  2. Gavin - a Jesper's "Mona Lisa"? Did you see the "Fox?" in the knots of wood to the right of the face?

    You seem to have this ability to capture another life in your photos Ben, really interesting and a little unnerving. This does NOT put me off your work, only has me more and more intrigued! Lesley Expat Kiwi

  3. Lesley, I agree that it is a "Mona Lisa" sort of face but although I can see the knots in the wood, I can't really make out the image of a fox? in it. Maybe I have a poor imagination? :-/
