dove, angel or mothman?

curious Rorschach Test as seen in a simple portrait photo.

The image of Mac Tonnies in the side-bar at the left has generated a little bit of chatter by the readers. Does the shadow of his glasses look like something? I used photoshop to help visually isolate the shadow, as seen on the right (above).

Christopher Knowles (ever the mythologyst) chimed in by simply stating: A Phoenix.

A phoenix.

Maybe it's a combination of all of the above?
I'm sure Mac would love the fact that his photo would be so enigmatic.

The mothman was/is supposidly a harbinger of something bad. But it doesn't look mothlike.

It looks more like the fairies of the late Victorian era that were photographed (and later debunked).

It's a play of light and shadow but it is startling. Funny how so many of us didn't even notice this, even though Mac's pic was up for along time.

Mothman or faerie, angels or demons, it might just be a matter of perspective:

PS: Yo Chris! I left a message at your Secret Sun blog last Sunday re. your "Year of Thinking Magically /Star Wars" posts, but I guess it was intercepted by some Imperial spy drone or something :P
