Face of a story

Flickr, for those of you who don't know is a place to upload your pictures and store them online. There are many other neat features. For example you can tag photos with keywords. Doing this then allows people to browse all of the photos on Flickr with those keywords. There are lots of other neat features, but I'll let you go and see for yourself.

One of the interesting things to browse on Flickr are the Groups. These groups are populated by user submitted photos. One interesting group that I came across lately is titled: Face of a Story. The group is self described as:
The life of a person seems to be very much reflected in their face. Though a picture may be worth a thousand words an interesting face may often be worth much more.

This is a group about life and about the people we chance to encounter. I would like for this group to collect portraits of interesting faces, those faces creased with the wrinkles of age, faces of age and wisdom, beauty and youth, but most especially faces which seem to tell a story.
Go, look at the photos in this group, they are worth your while.
