Long Live The Gremlin King
Pictured above is the Gremlin King found subtlety hiding in an old magnolia pod in a street gutter. It’s no Jesus face on a piece of toast so I’m doubting anyone will try to buy it from me for some ridiculous amount of money. Anyway, I would be lying if I wrote that I took this picture because the gremlin looking face caught my eye. I never noticed it until I started post-processing. I almost deleted from my camera because I messed the focus up by trying to hand hold at lower shutter speed (disregard exif data in the left column. I have no idea where it pulled those settings. Every now and then Lightroom gets confused when I import).
Magnolia pods are always interesting because of the teeth/dog toenail looking seeds that protrude from them. Do a Google image search on them and you’ll be surprised that a tree could put out such bombastic and pleasant flowers could also yield such hideous seed pods.
