Two roses for you on Valentine's Day

The one above (via Mighty Optical Illusions) illustrates the phenomenon of pareidolia.  The one below (via The Soul is Bone) is a "double color Aquarius hybrid tea rose" posted at Facebook.


  1. I wasn't familiar with that word - pareidolia. Wonder if this photo I took a few yrs. ago would fit the description? Cactus Heart

    1. The term is usually used to refer to seeing faces (like the skull in the rose).

      That's an odd shape for what I guess is a prickly pear. I wonder if it got chewed on and then healed up. But it's a nice Valentine photo (sort of...)

  2. Great image for the Rolling Stones "dead flowers"
