Silhouette In The Dark


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?

    • Ben

      The place just above where her legs split is her waist.

    • Grace

      Me too

  • Jason

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

  • ;l

    god damit its a girl i say to you

  • smilyface

    I dont see it either

  • Farted

    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…..

  • Crystal

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

  • Hai

    i see the girl but not the other picture…help me out here!

  • Sam

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

  • Mr Wiggly

    Is the picture sideways and the silhouette actually a hand?

  • John March

    Hey. I’d aprecciate if you gave me credit for my photo. I took this photo. I’m glad you like it enough to post it on you site.. Please do the right thing. Here’s a link to the original posting

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


  • john march’s GF

    yeah that pic is john’s…of my legs! you really should give him credit!!!!!

  • vurdlak

    Hy! thnks for info! I just edited the post to give you credit… It was submitted by user and thought it was his flickr photo. Props!

  • ali

    ?????????? i’m confuesd

  • snb

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

  • webbguy

    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!

  • elle_style

    its upside down fingers over a camera lense…:)



  • Seba 719

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

  • maybe i’m just too blonde…

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

  • Daniel

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

  • Al

    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.

  • niki

    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!

  • Spença

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

  • Shachi

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

  • paranoid

    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]…=)

  • rwqrewttew

    i see the legs but she’s not naked

  • Moi

    I see it

  • drumgal44

    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.

  • The alien

    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.

  • Mrs13

    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

  • The truth

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

    Okay, in the blue 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?

    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!


  • Jasmine

    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 …

  • Shem

  • joshgumban

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

    its a tree!!!!! im 9 and i saw that straight away WOW

  • orel

    I think she’s sitting on top of a Television!

  • mike

    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.

  • akash

    anybody c the creepy face on blue side…

  • Anonymous

    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?

  • Garythesnail

    Is that a fish tail?

  • Michael

    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.

  • Katie

  • Kurt

    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

  • Unicorn Face

    things i see in the blue thingy
    1. a demon face
    2. a werewolf making out with a little girl

  • ohmygosh

    I dont get it.

  • Finstyle

    Its a school girl sitting on a chair.

  • Michelle

    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

  • Grace

    It’s a boxer on the corner of a boxing ring.

  • DAF

    its a pair of legs

  • 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.
