John Colorado’s – Shadow Face Illusion

John Colorado sent me this photo he took recently. It took me few seconds before I spot the optical illusion in it, but then was really amazed by the result. Let’s give John opportunity to explain himself: “Hi, here’s my picture, taken in the New Jersey. My name is John Anderson Colorado and I live in Paris, two years ago I was in the New Jersey and took a photo, the shadow of a tree which makes a face on the roof of a rabbit house. It’s a 100% real picture! I think it will be a nice present for your page. Hope you’ll answer to me. ps: if you speak French or Spanish it could be easier for me ;)”

  1. Humm… I’m sorry, I can’t seem to see any kind of face in that picture. Can anyone else see it? where is it?

  2. Wow! I took about 2 minutes to me, but that’s just amazing! I was just quitting, and I turned my eyes off, and then I got it.


  3. 1ST COMMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    dont kno if people can see this but there i a shadow tht looks kind of like a lion/tiger in the top left hand corner.

  4. I see a girl on the right, but I also see a lion on the left near the top edge of the roof. The lion’s mouth is open.

  5. cool…the face is kinda messed up…its like a child with a beard and an eyepatch. but its cool that its not photoshopped. I cant find the lion…where is it???? p.s. to vurdlak: DO you speak french or spanish?

  6. Very cool, and as opposed to the lion/tiger in the top left I personally see a Panda head, along with the obvious face on the right.

  7. I also see the face (furthest right hand line being the outside of the face) but the figure in the top left corner is definately a caricature of Margaret Thatcher looking to the left with her mouth covered.

  8. John,
    I see the genius in you to identify this shadow in this form. You are great man and of course thank you for sharing this amazing picture.

  9. If you can’t see it, just move your head back, if you can’t see it either, just walk back watching it (sorry for bad english)
