Faces

Many, many nice images are being captured and shown from the current inflation at Halema’uma’u crater. Those of us that have access, time, talent and equipment are being given a great opportunity to capture God’s creation at work.

In looking over the numerous images I captured the other evening, I ‘see’ a few faces/profiles within the plume rising from the crater. While I don’t believe in Pele or the numerous other gods associated, I don’t disrespect, look down upon or otherwise ridicule another persons free will to choose what and who they believe in. I say this because I do not wish to create a religious or spiritual debate, argument or otherwise tick someone off. We, as individuals, believe what we believe.

Do I think the following images captured some ‘spirit images’? Nah. Just interesting stuff.

The first image, to my eye, looks like a lady in the plume. When I first saw the image on my LCD screen, I smiled and just said ‘Wow’. The folks standing next to me looked at me to see what I was talking about and I asked them to take a look at the screen. When they did, they said ‘Look at the lady!’. Pretty cool.

The second image, to my eye, looks like an old crone or hag.

The third image, to my eye, appears to be another profile.

The fourth image, to my eye, is probably the coolest one. It appears to be a Spanish Conquistador.

Yes, I have a very vivid and active imagination. You won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t see the profiles or think I’m seeing things. Just presented for enjoyment, kind of like looking at shapes in the clouds.
