This appears to be a blob of paint on asphalt. If I stand back and squint, I sort of see a face. Interesting find, photog!

I see the underside of a mushroom, an old fashion bomb or a badminton's shuttlecock.

Let me add: some very bad egg(?), though that's a reach.

And I like how this is the opposite of looking at the sky and making shapes out of passing clouds. Instead, it's just something static, and yet we can "fool ourselves" into thinking it's something else.

Or maybe I'm just looking into a blob of paint way too much!
