What is Pareidolia?

 

para- something wrong, and eidolon, a ghostly image or phantom

 

The tendency to interpret a vague stimulus as something known to the viewer; such as interpreting marks on Mars as canals or seeing shapes in clouds.

 

pareidolia - the Skeptic's Dictionary - Skepdic.com

 

For some reason, unbeknown to me, I constantly find familiar shapes, forms and faces in my images. Whether it is because I am subconsciously aware these abstracts are there which makes me take the photo or because some supernatural force manipulates the structure of the image :eek: once it is 'in the can' is not for me to say.:confused:

 

In the rocks I see a dog - a leprechaun and several other forms which all have the bacic elements which form a face. This has been the theme of several of my recent posts.
