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 ;)”

    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.

    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.

    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.

  28. Griff says:

    very nice and realistic face picture… i wonder what else shadows could create. Endless possibilities!

  29. ME! says:

  33. Anonymous says:

    I would have said it is a polar bear wih a fish in is mouth, in addition to the face.

  34. Monxy says:

    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)
