Involuntary Art

So, I was going to blog about something completely different… a dead rat I found on the street yesterday. But when I saved the rat pictures in my “miscellaneous” picture folder, I rediscovered this other picture I’ve always found interesting. Not because of the quality of, but because of the subject and the story behind it.

A few years ago, I was eating fries. French fries, made at home, probably not from scratch. Me and my roommates were chatting and munching. I pour some ketchup on the side of the plate. More talking, more munching, mmm. I love my fries with ketchup.
I look down to my plate to see how I’m doing on the ketchup level, and holly shit what do I see?

Ketchup Art

A face! I drew face! I drew a face in ketchup with fries! Not looking! Not intending to!

Immediately I grabbed my camera and tried to take a few shots. Given the low light and my shakiness, the shots didn’t turn out very good, which is why I turned it into a more dramatic black and white version.

Looking at it more, I think it looks like a Native American, almost smiling. Hmm, but it could also look like a TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). I don’t know… what does it look like to you?

Oh and by the way, this is the photo I was originally going to post. Poor rat. It was pretty cute.
