A Face Can Say So Much

By on November 8, 2011

Facial expressions are designed to communicate feelings, often without words. Here are a few expressions from all around the world, proving we are not so different after all.




Whether it be during sporting events:

















But it’s not limited to the participants, those around them also indulge in facial expressions:




















Thrill rides result in thrilled expressions:



















Children learn the power of facial expressions at a young age:

















And even pets can be influenced to the point of mimicry. Here we have a display of a porn star and a politician:

    Luke, I love these photo sets you post every now and again… Always make me chuckle. I gave you an award on my blog, for versatility :) Actually it’s three, but the other two were kinda corny so I kinda ignored them :) Here’s the link:


    Please don’t feel pressured into doing anything with the award(s)–it’s just my way of saying thanks for the chuckles you’ve given me, and in my own small way to contribute to increasing the traffic to your blog and promoting your book. Hope it helps!

  3. Great collection of photos. I don’t want to ask where you got the one with the guy throwing up. The baby pics are my favourite because I’m a sap for that sort of thing. The last one is the most intriguing. He looks like Fowl Ol’ Ron from the Discworld series by Terry Practchett.
