I bought a new computer a couple of months ago, and the updated version of iPhoto that came installed on it has face recognition built in. It went through my entire library of photos, and tagged what it thought were faces. That lead to the occasional humorous tag in which inanimate objects were marked as faces. Here's two of them. I thought they were funny, so I took screenshots of the photos with the tags. The faces are labeled 'unnamed' because it didn't recognize a specific face.
The first photo was taken at Children’s Fairyland, a trippy amusement park for young kids in Oakland, CA. The bottom one is a photo of one of the cool vintage arcade games at Musée Mécanique, the only thing worth seeing on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
