Houses with faces

Entry Description

I have photographed a lot of houses in both United States and Taiwan because of my job. One day, I found out that there is a hidden face in each every one of the them waiting to be discovered…..just like us. If we take a closer look with some imagination, we are able to uncover the unique character among them. Interestingly, the faces of the houses can be shown differently as we all have our own ways of observation and fantasy because of the background we grew up with.
