Hey, let’s look in the mirror…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s featured fruit is the surly uncommunicative avocado.

I think that it’s time we had another dip into that strange junk shop book of mine, Looking at Faces and Remembering Them (1971) by Jacques Penry, Facial Topographer and inventor of the Penry Facial Identification Technique (Photo-Fit).

DSCN3661What will we choose today? Well, what have we had so far Dave?
We’ve had some nice pages of noses, some ears, and some facial accessories: masks, hats, glasses, etc. How about a couple of pages of eyes?…

DSCN3665Whoa! These are a bit unsettling aren’t they?…
Which of these are your eyes dear reader? This is like playing ‘Spot the Psychopath’ isn’t it? How about Fig. 22, ‘Lidless’? He’s a likely candidate…Oh, and look at those ‘Down-slanting’ ones, let’s see what Jacques has to say about those:
‘Down-slanting eyes should catch anyone’s attention. They are rarely seen in children’s faces and develop during adulthood. They are far more common in men than in women and once developed remain constant throughout life…’
You can often see these, for some reason, on the faces of British Conservative politicians and members of the Royal Family… Hm… (M.T.)
Jacques describes Fig. 21, ‘Hooded’ as being ‘dreamy’ and with a ‘far away look’ – he’s right too. I’d put that chap down as a bad poet, or a smouldering 1940s Hollywood heart-throb… Nice!…
