|National Geographic asked us for faces. They were planning a photo feature on 'accidental' faces found in natural and man-made objects. One of those requests guaranteed to send a shiver down the spine of even an experienced photo-researcher... How do you search for such a subject? What keywords do you use?
But because the photographers at Photographers Direct respond to your requests, they can think 'Oh yes, I have a picture like that!' and upload it for you to view. Here is a selection of our favorites:
faces in natural and man-made objects

|Live and let live the retro Bond trunks!
With Bond fever having raced through everyones veins APL couldn't help but notice the similarity of these now retro swimming shorts to those of Mr Daniel Craig - the latest James Bond. Although the males in this John Adams image may cause the discerning viewer to cast a lingering look due to their fashionable attire, we don't think the star of Casino Royal has anything to worry about just yet!
If this amuses then please explore further into the depths of APL's website using keywords such as Retro, Fashion, Stylish.
Have a fantastic 2007 - APL look forward to hearing from you soon.
