The Friendly Faces of BWI
While waiting for my wife's flight, I found these nine friendly faces watching the travelers in the Baltimore Washington airport. I have felt, for years, that designers cannot help but mimic the symmetry and beauty of creation in industrial design. It's everywhere and we expect it to be there. And so, here it is again!

Assignment: Anthropomorphism is the act of assigning human traits, emotions, or intentions to non-human entities. A few well-known examples of anthropomorphism are the teapot, cup and candle-holder in the Disney movie of Beauty and the Beast, the Pixar lamp and robots that look like humans. The most common feature that we usually recognize is the human face because we are hardwired to see them. However, the female shape of Coca-cola bottles, scarecrows and those human-like bottle openers are all examples of anthropomorphism. You can create an anthropomorphic photo, walk around with your camera looking for something interesting or hike to that tree that you remembered looked like a screaming ghost. This is a fun and imaginative task creative Framers but remember that it is still a photo challenge. Check your lighting, composition, horizon, background, etc. etc.. Don’t just snap a photo of a rose that looks like a skull. Create a scary and haunting photograph of the skull rose that makes the hair at the back of your neck stand up straight!
