What Do You See?

Each day as I walk past this tree stump, I see a face. Depending on the light, the deeply set eyes appear to be more pronounced, the long thin nose reminds me of someone – but whom?

On an impulse, I decided to email the image to some friends and family to see what they thought. I wanted to know if others also saw the same image. Only one friend said she could not see a face, and perhaps questioned my sanity. Susan couldn’t see anything except a stump with bark falling off. Well, there goes the imagination! But I can see an image, and he’s looking right back at me. Some friends and family tell me they see the face of Abraham Lincoln, while others can definitely see an image but can’t put a name to the face. Others have nicknamed him The Bark Man and The Man in The Tree. What do you see?
