While my dad was visiting, we went on a number of outdoor excursions. And, like anyone with an imagination, Ian and I, of course, always found some way to accessorize with nature's gifts. Whether it was moustache or a monocle, we had it covered.
And, of course, when I saw a head-sized hole in a crumbling old tree, that's exactly where my head ended up. I mean, if you saw this stump, wouldn't you want to stick your head in it to take a photo of your best Jack Nicholson in The Shining face?
Scary, right? Ian wasn't quite satisfied with it. He felt I could look a little more insane. But, I reserve my craziest of craziest faces for real life situations when I REALLY want to scare someone. You can't just go around wasting those faces on photos. If you do, you'll end up reducing the overall scariness of the face, which would just ruin the desired effect when I really want it. We definitely don't want that, now do we, folks? And, on top of everything else, I didn't want to scare my dad. That would have just been SO rude after he traveled all the way out here to see me. Anyway, moral of the story, although I look slightly maniacal in the above photo, I could do better. *Consider yourself warned!*
So, anyway, nature is rad. Scary faces are fun. Moustaches are funny. And elk vertebrae make the perfect monocles. You learn something new everyday.
