My Face Looks Like An Ansel Adams Landscape

Recently, I realized that my face resembles the grooved, creviced surfaces and irregular textures of the sand dunes, rock formations, mountains, mesas and buttes in the photographs Ansel Adams made at a number of sites in the American West. My weather beaten, multi-textured, blotchy, sun-damaged, bumpy skin and tumbleweed-like and eroding hair recall the desolate, windswept landscapes of New Mexico and Arizona seen in works by Laura Gilpin, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Weston, Frederick Sommer and Adams.
