I was startled yesterday to find that PICASA, the program I use to manage my pictures, had decided on its own initiative to go through all my pictures and single out the faces. I don't normally take a lot of pictures of people -- except maybe at a mystery convention, so I was surprised to see that PICASA had managed to find well over a thousand. They included all sorts of faces from all sorts of photos -- a romance novel cover, African fabric with a picture of Obama on it, a votive candle, a tile in my kitchen, a photograph on the wall of a restaurant in Indianapolis, two photographs that were in the background of a larger shot, and of course any number of real people.
So I felt compelled to do something with all these faces. And here they are.
There are several mystery authors represented including a good looking guy who's a NYT Bestseller, a southern-fried lawyer, a NY substance abuse counselor, and a perky little Canadian.
Friends and family are there, a couple of women who were in a quilting class I once taught, and more than one face I have no idea about.
More mystery authors, more family, a book cover face, a mystery man or two, and one dog. Recognize anyone?
I can't wait to see what PICASA does next. I wish it would go organize my pantry.
