Do you see faces in the facades of buildings?

I was actually going another direction with these photos after the first few images, but this image took on a life of it's own. I was initially thinking robots or something sci-fi related when I began this series, but this image read so clearly as a face I couldn't fight it. Robot face? Perhaps, but there is something nice about the patterning in the window panes.

New Photo

I have shot the facades of buildings on and off for years. I was helping my friend Melissa install her window air conditioner a few weeks ago and she had a great view directly across to a neighboring building. I shot a few images and worked on them in the computer when I got home. Once you square up the building structure you have a palette of building block with which to play. The resultant image suggests a few thing to me but I will save that for the next post.
