Funny Faces 4


Another load of pics for the collection, folks!

A dragon’s head; very appropriate as we’re in Newtown, Mid Wales.

Still in Wales, this alien was spotted at Elan Valley

’Don’t know why you’ve landed here’, grumbles a tree, ’it’s bloomin’ cold’.

a dwarf tries to cheer him up; ’It’s not that bad.’

…whilst old rock-face remains unmoved.

’I’m blue in the face’, says another tree, which doesn’t like the cold either.

‘Perhaps a covering of moss would help keep the cold off your face’, suggests his neighbour

‘or being down here, on the ground’, pipes up a tiny imp.

‘Well, if you were in Africa’ says a baboon ’you’d be moaning about the heat, so wrap up and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.’

The End

Lol - old Rockface puts me in mind of those presidents' heads carved on Mount Rushmore in the US! But i reckon he's been around longer than they have!
Other favourites this time are the baboon and the imp.

The dragons head, alien and number eight, that one I immediately spotted a baby elephant stretching upwards, those are my favourites, think I maybe said this before but the real old gnarled trees always make me think of Tolkien's walking forest in Lord of the Rings...Thankyou
W' Horse this is going to keep me entertained for ages scrolling up and down looking for more shapes.....

I found the baby elephant eventually, but there is something seriously wrong with its huge ear???
