    Pareidolia (pronounced /pɛɹaɪˈdoliə/ or /pæraɪˈdəʊliə/), first used in 1994 by Steven Goldstein[1], describes a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being mistakenly perceived as recognizable. Common examples include images of animals or faces in clouds, seeing the man in the moon, and hearing messages on records played in reverse. The word comes from the Greek para- – amiss,

    O.K,,,so lets see your pics of faces in the lino,clouds that look like fluffy bunnies, brown spots on bananas that look like George Bush!

    Very good idea. As many others, I've spend quit a few hours lying on my back and imagining seeing things in the clouds. Now I know I have to bring the camera.

    I sure do see a face in the wood, though I would not be able to tell what exactly it is. And yes, the lake also has the shape of a wolf or other animal with pointed ears and a snout. Very nice. I think I have a photo that would represent a paradoloia somewhere, too, taken on the Remarkable Rocks on Kangaroo Island off Adelaide in South Australia. Would need to go look for the print first and scan it, though, for 10 years ago when I was in Australia digital photography was still "far away" for me (and most?).

    OOH those are neat. I can't wait to show you something once I get my new camera. At our children's museam there is a room cunstructed of marble and in the veins of one of the slabs on one wall you can TOTALLY see the head of James Hetfield from Metallica!!! I am not kidding. But we were at one of my husbnads work funtions and i had no camera to show it to anyone. They were all freaking out once I pointed it out though and you guys taking about clounds and stuff and finding things reminded me that I MUST go to the museum and take that picture!

    I'm confused with the first image. I don't see anything but wood. :( I'm bad at this LOL. I see the rest and I think the one of the wolf is so awesome. Its wolf creek ha ha, that movie sucked. I'm cheesey.
