PhotoHunt#23 - Multiple Views ...

Note: If you're looking for Sky Watch #13 or Haiku Friday #76 ... you'll find them below this post. Camera Critters, Smiley Saturday, and Haiku Friday #77 are at Small Reflections.

This is my 23rd
Did anyone else think of this initially?
From Wikipedia: The original panel of The View; Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Debbie Matenopoulos and Barbara Walters in 1997.
I'm just wondering ...

Do you see and old or young woman?

Click for others participating in Photo Hunt this week.

For more 'conventional' views ... I shared TWO LOCAL Southern California 'beach neighborhood' VIEWS in my Sky Watch/Haiku Friday post yesterday ... and my WW#49 contains a spectacular VIEW of Jackson Lake at Sunrise ... with 9 labeled Photoshop Elements 'variations' too. So much for planning ahead ... sigh!

I love optical illusions.

Cheryl said...

I've seen this before...great trick on the eye.

Melli said...

Well... I see them both! But first I saw the young girl -- what's that say about me? HUH?

Nice twist on today's theme!

I played too :)

Bengbeng said...

Anonymous said...

No, I didn't think of The View at all, but it's a good one.

Sylvia K said...

Have to admit I saw the old woman first, but what else would you expect from an old woman??? Love your quote.

Hi. I love your kitty pictures at small reflections, but I am posting to you from here because I found the tab easier. I hope you don't mind.

I'm looking at fun blogs today that have cool photos of cats and your black-cat are great! My publisher in Winston-Salem is have a cat photo contest to promote my book Ghost Cats of the South, and you can email your photo(s) in and win $50 worth a stuff for your cats.

I'm trying to help them get some entries. The photo is supposed to be a ghost cat or a cat who has seen a ghost or just a cat who is cool enough to be a ghost.

You can get more details at my blog or website I have an easy click to their contest flyer, e-address etc.: www.ghostfolk.com

Or just send in a photo or two to their email address for the cat-photo contest:

Oh, and the winning cat will have her/his picture posted at the publisher's website (much more important than mine).

Please consider sending in a photo or two. [You don’t have to buy anything or take a survey or anything like that.] I hope you do! Or any one of your blog buddies,too. Northern cats are welcome!

BTW, this is odd but I have a story in Ghost Dogs of the South about a black lab (based on a black lab I met named Molly – she could throw a ball and loved doing it… and doing it… and doing it. No kidding, though, she could throw it right to your feet..).

Good Morning, Storyteller. I've seen this optical illusion before. Initially, I see the young woman, and must work hard to finally "see" the old woman. :P

I saw the young girl first. Then I saw the old woman, then I couldn't see the young girl again. *LOL* Nice job. Here is my view.

Maude Lynn said...

I see the young woman!

Mom Knows Everything said...

I see a women, but not sure if it's an old one or a young one.

Cheers, Klaus

Mimi Lenox said...

I only saw a young woman. I need to look again.

Thank you for flying the BlogBlast banner in your sidebar. It is much appreciated and I have linked you in my sidebar with the others who have done so. Peace to you....

Betty said...

Neat photo. I see both young and old. Nice choice.

To everybody – Thanks for visiting my unusual ‘View’ Photo Hunt this past week and sharing your thoughts. To those who could only see the ‘young’ woman, the OLD woman’s ‘mouth’ is the young woman’s necklace … and her left eye is the young woman’s ear. I hope that helps ;--)
Hope you’re all having a delightful day!
