Unintentional Faces in Objects, Part 2

Link - article by Avi Abrams

Darwin did not expect these objects to evolve into something (seemingly) human!

The first part of this series (read it here!) turned out pretty hilarious and popular on the interwebs. Today we present a second installment - full of bizarre human-face likenesses found in most unexpected objects, structures and even landscapes. Treat yourself to a laugh or two, and then go out encouraged to seek for more of such weird faces around you. Take a picture and send it to us (if it's any good, of course) for part three of this ongoing series.

This street artist just adds a little bit to already existing "faces" in objects (see more of Oakoak's extremely inventive street art here):

More street artists join the fun:

This smiley on top of a lighthouse in Lindau, Germany, reflects the current "mood of the city": when the "city is in a happy mood", then the smiley is a happy one. When there is a reason for a somber reflection, the smiley changes as well:
