28 Photos Of Faces Where They Shouldn't Be

Everywhere I look, I see faces. The cabinet is looking at me. The lightswitch is looking at me. The cereal is looking at me. And it's all because of your submissions to this week's Anthropomorphism Shooting Challenge.

I am a photography student at Point Park University in Pittsburgh and when I saw the shooting challenge for this week I ran down to our processing room and took a photo of this guy! I didn't really have any special techniques. I used my Nikon D40x on its auto setting. -Madeline McKain

I took this picture in the park, midday i think it was. My technique was simple, click and shabam. My equipment was my Lg Xenon 2.0 mega pixel camera on its basic settings. Due to the size of the image my phone resized it in order to send. Sorry. Since its not big enough for wallpaper you could always click "Tile". -Adriana D.

Mouse needed a battery change. Opened it up and saw a big smiling face saying "change me!" Equipment used, mobile phone (dumbphone) set to macro mode at 50 ISO. -Roy Rubio

Taken with a Nikon Coolpix L18. This is the first time I send I picture for this kind of challenges. I really wasn't thinking of sending any sort of picture since I usually feel like this is more of a challenge for the people with better cameras, but after seeing the ''face'' on this aeroplane I realised that by reading about this new shooting challenge I became a little more aware of seeing things where there weren't meant to be. So thank you for awakening in me a more creative way of seeing things. -Arturo Bravo

Curse you Gizmodo. I see faces every where I go! When I close my eyes I see faces. However it was fun. Here are my best examples. Except for the wrapping paper face with the frown, I just took what I saw and took a picture with little or no modification. Some photos were taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ-5. I used the macro setting on what I think is the best which is the half wrapped present a (window thermometer for my dad). I used auto white balance on all these pictures. There are two from the iPhone 3Gs because the best camera is the one you have with you. One from Joe's Crab Shack (coconut shrimp). The other is me sitting in a waiting room and happen to rest my sun lenses on my jeans. -Harry Tajchman

Canon Powershot S1 IS; 1 / 25; f 3.1. Testing the new breadmaker, I appear to have made the wheat angry... -William Colwell

I was out using the snow thrower to clear off the 22" of white stuff from the driveway, I looked down at my traction cleats after I was done and noticed them frowning back at me. No fancy camera, just my point-and-shoot Casio. Camera: Casio EX-Z750; F Number: F/4; Exposure Time: 1/400 -Eric Papula

Stumbled across this while looking through a store with my fiancée. Shot handheld with a Canon Rebel XS with EF 28-105mm f3.5-4.5 lens. -Eric Kornblum

I completely forgot about this shooting challenge until I saw this old coaster holder on my kitchen counter. I thought it was adorable! Shot hand-held, under fluorescent lighting, with Canon 7D and EF 50 f/1.4. ISO1600, f/1.6, 1/125. Very little post processing was done in Aperture 2: WB correction, exposure, levels, contrast, saturation, definition and vignette. Then some noise reduction was applied. -Russ Khabal
