I’ve been wandering lately (aka procrastination)—via satellite views on GoogleMaps. I found the Costa Concordia on its side next to the Isola del Giglio….

Isola del Giglio Concordia on side

And I found a grey-face? Maybe? Is this an intentional distortion? An artifact of shadows?

DelMarVa W face

This is on a partly destroyed cold war missile installation inland on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, called Tolchester. Still find the face mystifying.


  1. Sherry says:

    What a senseless tragedy! The face is just too eerie….

  2. kayak woman says:

    Both of those images freak me out!

  3. Pooh says:

    Maybe the face is a cold-war artifact. The Russian satellites pass over Tolchester, and the watchers get a shock. “We are watching you, watching us.”

    Had not occurred to me, Pooh, hmmm. Spooking the spooks theory?
