The human face is the most personal image that exists. In fact, paper currency across the world was originally designed using faces because famous faces are so highly recognizable that using them on money decreased the likelihood of forgery. People can easily notice small mistakes made in a poor copy of a face.

If you get to travel, take some time to visit with the unique faces you get to meet.
