I couldn’t help but to make this photo selection for the day.

It’s very subtle, but if you look close, the big water drop on the lens, along with two dust spots, form two eyes and the outline of a faint face looking directly at the sun.

Smiley face watching the sun rise

So often in my photos, I’m looking for a tiny detail that delights me, something that delights me in a way that larger photo could never do without knowing there is that little tiny something, that once I see it can’t be unseen.

Certainly there are better and “prettier” compositions from this morning, but there are far less delightful. I mean there is a little smiley face watching the sun rise.
