You know how it is ... you find a vegetable, with a face, that looks like it's been drawn by an artist you admire ... right? Right?
Well, I know how it is. It's just like this ...
We'd been grocery shopping and James was removing the older, eye-sprouting, potatoes from the basket and replacing them with the the ones we'd just bought.
Him: "Ha! This one's got a face".
And so it did:
Me: "Awww ... look at it. It looks like a Marc Johns drawing!!".
And so it does:
Above - When Henry Blew Bubbles they Became More Than That.
Below - If You Sit on Me
Would You Like Some Eyes? [appropriate question for a potato ... wouldn't you say?]You can find out more about Marc Johns' work on his website and his Flickr gallery.
And you can find out more about my potatoes by looking in my pull-out grocery cupboard.
Follow up: I posted a photo of my Marc Johns potato on Marc Johns' Facebook wall thinking he might like it ... but at the time of writing - he hasn't yet responded.
As for the potato ...
... he ended his days in a rather smashing celery and garlic soup!
[Edited to add: OK, Marc Johns has now left me a very lovely comment below ... I'm now in a mix of emotions ranging from delight to guilt at eating the potato AND I feel bad for implying he hadn't responded to a random photo of a potato a strange woman sent to him ... Mostly delight though!]
Thanks for reading today.
p.s: If you like things liked this [whatever this is!] you might like Faces in Places - a Flickr group I've been looking at for years which has photos of ... errrrm ... faces .. in places.
