Being silly of course, but I did enjoy the "face" that appeared to me before I looked through these long-range binoculars on Toronto's Centre Island.

Is it E.T !!?? Amazing shot , Phil

@Phil: Strapped to a boardwalk on lake Ontario, pretending to be a pair of long range binoculars, the alien visitor almost had them fooled...
est-ce que je verrais aussi en vert....je crois plutôt que je serais éblouie

@l'Angevine: Dazzled by the lens flare that was actually "alien speak", she considered her options...
Who is looking at who?

@Curly: Ah, the timeless photography question...
E.T. gets a kind of diverging squint.
Can you take him to the doctor?
15 Jun 2012 7:51am
@Gérard Beullac: We have health care in Canada, just like France, and E.T. should become a citizen and get signed up!
Fantastic! I'm hearing ..."Home". Very well seen. And congratulations for your spotlght!

@Francisco Romero: It would have been fun to look through these, suddenly spotting kids on high flying bicycles over the lake... (thanks re the Spotlight!)
Love those green eyes, very reminiscent of the film. Poor guy needs a phone to
phone home !~

@Phil Morris: On this day, I went to the Toronto Island because the clouds were fantastic and I wanted to enjoy the acreage of open space. By the time I got out there the clouds had all but blown away and I found myself taking photos of almost everything, ha! Fun is Mind.
Take me to your leader Earthling. Nice bit of contra jour Rick

Spectacular image! Well done...
A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.
Have a good weekend & Good luck !!!

@Universe: Thanks, though I must admit that personalized comments are more appealing than copy/paste ones.
Ha ha - E.T. is exactly what I thought when the image loaded! You really have an eye to put the most normal of things in a whole different perspective. Fantastic shot, Rick!

@Jason Politte: The little camera in our heads has a wonderful way of finding and framing snapshots within the weave of Life, and we attach recognition symbols so easily ;-) ... thanks for playing along, Jason! Have a great upcoming weekend.
Rather uncanny - especially the eyes. Love the dramatic light as well. It makes me wonder - an encounter like this might have provided the original inspiration for ET! Have a great weekend, Rick!

@Stephen: It would be a blast to have "full spectrum vision" available to our naked eyes whenever we wanted it, but in the meantime we can have a lot of fun with this very narrow band of photons that we perceive :-) - thanks, Stephen, and enjoy that weekend of yours in beautiful Australia.
We are here to banish fast food from the galaxy.
Super size me on that one

@grouser: You got it, pal. I'll even throw in a free air sickness bag!
I couldn't help but think of E.T. before seeing your title. A cute shot of someone that brings back lots of memories from the early 80's! Well spotted and captured thanks to your own imagination.
15 Jun 2012 12:27pm
@Steven: Ah, the joys of middle age! Thanks for having a look, Steven.
Ha! Grouser! What more can be said? Fun shot, and really kinda pretty metal and eyes reflections.
15 Jun 2012 12:43pm
@Joyce: Yep. Definitely "har har" (grouser) and fun (the shot, I hope.) Thanks, Joyce.

@Nicou: Je suis heureux que vous l'aimez, Nicou :-))
Yes, it's definitely alien! A good innovate shot.
15 Jun 2012 3:12pm
@Slackwater - Don: If I can be silly and innovative all at once, it's a good day! Cheers, Don.
15 Jun 2012 4:25pm
@Mhelene: I thank you.
Wow is this Walle? Looks like you have found his tip.
15 Jun 2012 5:30pm
@Leigh: Yes, there is more a resemblance to him than the famous Spielberg "E.T.", though I meant it more in the general term of extraterrestrial. Thanks for the comment, Leigh.
My first thought was, "Here's looking at you." I can see the resemblance of E.T., it also reminds me of something else. (Don't remember the movie).
15 Jun 2012 6:55pm
@Irene: Oh, the fun we can have with a pair of mounted binoculars ;-) (thanks, Irene)
Cool and creative shot ~ great light!
15 Jun 2012 7:49pm
@RBL: I was angling for a bunch of lens flare, but this exceeded my expectations when I finally saw it at home. Thanks!
ET phone home ;-)) Interesting photo and excellent title ...
15 Jun 2012 8:34pm
@Baldwin VW: Thanks much.
Spot on! Such a creative shot, Rick! Great work. I love how the light is filtering through the eyepieces - gives it that extraterrestrial green glow.
16 Jun 2012 1:17am
@B.Sully: Thanks very much for playing along with me on this one :-)
Yes, you titled it well ... E.T. would easily recognize this 'brother' ... great shot!
16 Jun 2012 2:28am
@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks, Judy... I was just thinking it must suck to have no eyelids! This poor green eyed thing... ;-)
You have beautiful eyes, Alien sweet ;)
16 Jun 2012 6:55am
lovely eyes indeed ... ;-))
16 Jun 2012 8:22pm
Magnificent, Rick! Love this one....can you spare a few Loonies for a telephone call?
