"Ghost" pictures
I like ghost pictures. They are natural optical illusions, and I like optical illusions as well. (Our daughter’s birth announcement featured one)

There was a time I could surf the web for hours searching for ghost pictures.
The bulk of pictures are those "orbs" or "ectoplasm’s" which are mostly just dust, raindrops, gnats or camera-straps. Boring! No, I like the one's where you can clearly see faces or spectres. (I believe there is a scientific word for the mechanism that makes you associate objects with faces, but I forgot what exactly.) This one is my favourite.

This one puzzled me for a long time. I think it’s is someone with a scarf around his/her neck walking away from the camera but I am not sure why anyone would wear a scarf on such a sunny day.

Anyway...
The human mind is so receptive for suggestion. I rarely trust my own perception at first glance and I think no one should.

Care to share your favourite ghost picture?
