It’s amazing how our brain first presumes it’s seeing a silhouette of a young, fine and sexy looking girl. Actually it isn’t even a girl we are seeing here. Feel free to guess what is the secret behind this photo. This photo was submitted by one of our fans via email, but I just learned today from coments, that the original artist’s name is John March, and you can see his flickr profile here. Nice photo John!

    I think I’ve got the opposite problem. I see a pair of legs. where’s the sexy girl?

  2. Jason says:

    Looks like someone’s calf tucked under a chair, with a part of their shorts (skirt?) sticking out.

  3. ;l says:

    god damit its a girl i say to you

  4. smilyface says:

    I dont see it either

  5. Farted says:

    Where’s the girl? Does the blue background have anything to do with it considering it’s the only thing that’s not black or white? Hmmmmm…..

  6. Crystal says:

    I only see the bottom half of a girl, like below the chest and stuff… I don’t see the other picture! :(

  7. Hai says:

  8. Sam says:

    I see it there is a naked girl inside of the blue if u look closely into it/

  9. Mr Wiggly says:

    Is the picture sideways and the silhouette actually a hand?

  10. John March says:

    if you tilt you head sideways to the left you can see it’s my GF’s legs


  11. john march's GF says:

  12. vurdlak says:

  13. ali says:

    ?????????? i’m confuesd

  14. snb says:

    i got it they are crossed legs….try to see the right leg crossed over the left one….

  15. webbguy says:

    Ha Ha! Sam says:

    I see it there is a naked girl inside of the blue if u look closely into it/

    Sure you do man. That’s sad!

  16. elle_style says:

  18. Seba 719 says:

    maybe its something with my head but when I stare into something long enough (like clouds) I start to see things

  19. maybe i'm just too blonde... says:

    i dont get it… whats with the different colours in the background?

  20. Daniel says:

    There actually is a naked girl. Look twards the top-middle, then look just slightly to the left.

  21. Al says:

    Looking horizontally under a desk, the main black curve from bottom right to mid left is the back of her calf, from above the ankle to under the knee, then the curve veers off to the right, just to the beginning of her skirt. Awesome pic.

  22. niki says:

    i agree with sam, if you look closely into the blue you can see a bunch of tiny (naked) figures standing around a round table. I further think webbguy is rude. The trick to these images if to keep an open mind!

  23. Spença says:

    Oh I see…flip the image upside-down: it’s just the guy’s hand in front of the camera.

  24. Shachi says:

    LOL … that’s just a photograph of one’s hand photographed by side. Tilt your head to the left guyz.

  25. paranoid says:

    i see crossed leg…imagine the body is the leg [right leg on top of leg..and the figure in the right top corner is part of the skirt]…=)

  26. rwqrewttew says:

    i see the legs but she’s not naked

  27. drumgal44 says:

    This might sound crazy but if you look closely in the blue on the right you can see a cloudy profile of the devil somewhat holding his palm out towards her leg.

  28. The alien says:

    It’s called silhouette in the dark so surely it’s something to do with the portion that’s not black. I guess. But I still haven’t found it.

  29. Mrs13 says:

    I don’t get it.
    I’ve been looking at the picture for like 15 minutes now, I’ve read all of your comments and I’m still too stupid to see anything.
    silly me

  30. The truth says:

    Here’s a hint: Look at it upside-down, then start “Walking” upside-down with your fingers.

    Okay, in the blue area..you can see a bit of a greenish-bluish shade, and you can see like a demon looking thing. It’s actually smiling an evil smile. Evil eye, and nose, hand pointing the the ledt. The head is funky shaped. See it?

  32. Anonymous says:

    It took u that long to figure it out looke closely…..
    on the bottom riht theres a dot..
    now u see its a clip from a movie.

    its a girl standing up during a movie in a thearter..

    Thats what i think!


  33. Jasmine says:

    if you look at it backwords it just look like a hand and whoever took the picture took it in a angle where a window is at the edge of the photo… thats what i think …

  34. Shem says:

    thats LAME!!!

  35. joshgumban says:

  36. Anonymous says:

    I see the silohuette, but in the blue space there are some three evil faces, or a single evil one..
    too complicated

  39. orel says:

  40. mike says:

    what are u people talking about, the author of the picture said what it is. its a good pic, and as for the blue part, i’v seen this type of thing loads of times… if you stare at anything similar to that your mind tries to make sence of it, and it creates images as best it can. i dont think that theres suspose to be any thing in the blue part.

  41. akash says:

    anybody c the creepy face on blue side…

  42. Anonymous says:

    I’m super confused…the photographer says it’s his girlfriend’s legs, but the description says it’s not even a girl. Wouldn’t the guy who took the picture know best?

  43. Garythesnail says:

    Is that a fish tail?

  44. Michael says:

    awesome…took me a long while to see her legs. That is crazy. I thought for the longest time that it was a silhouette of a woman from directly below the bust…

    However, what you believe to be her butt, is actually the calf muscle. The real girl is sitting on the top right corner of the picture frame, with her legs touching at the knees and bending, with her feet on the ground (however, the picture is cut off above the ankle and below the shin.

    The only part to look at is the pure bold black silhouette (a tiny portion of the silhouette in the top right corner is a piece of a skirt/shorts/etc.)

    Good luck, when it hits you, you will have trouble seeing the original silhouette.

  57. Kurt says:

    I believe it to be a TV just showing something weird at the time, meanwhile there is a girl sitting on top of it with her legs down in front of the screen. It looks like you can see some type of name brand or buttons or some thing at the bottom of the picture

  58. Unicorn Face says:

  61. Finstyle says:

    Its a school girl sitting on a chair.

  62. Michelle says:

    I think it’s a broken mirror, or at least thats what i see, and it can’t be a girl, cuz the description says “Actually it isn’t even a girl we are seeing here. ” ..besides i see no girl in there. W/e xD

  63. Grace says:

  67. DAF says:

    its a pair of legs

  68. P. Callaway says:

    To me it looks like a human hand, shaped to look like someone walking…note the bent leg is pointing finger…straight leg is middle finger..what looks like skirt is actually thumb. Do it at home and look at your own hand.

  69. fgh says:

  70. R. J. Kuzma says:

    I also see a hand or fingers at work here.
    P. Callaway said it first, I’m just in agreement.
