Haunting at the GAP

Jojie Alcantara (Oct 2012)

A fun horror-themed shoot at Davao's GAP Farm Resort, famous for its statues of Philippine mythical creatures, so we added our own. Thanks to models and friends who joined our October theme.

Interestingly, an observer commented he saw a "face" in one of the photos, and went on to enlighten me about his remark: "Enlarged and viewed it full screen. A figure of a man with hair parted in the middle (very slightly to the left) became clear. If this is the same GAP farm I have seen before, I can venture an explanation. The place is very near the diversion road. The thoroughfare was not used much during the martial law years and there were persistent claims it was a place of summary execution or dumping place of people summarily executed. Your activity, plus the fact that it will soon be "adlaw sa minatay,(All Souls' Day)" may have attracted such apparition.

I then of course asked which photo he was referring to, because I am seeing many "faces" in every photo, and clearly, this optical illusions (if most are) are interesting and intriguing, adding to the drama of my theme. So can you point out one? :-)
