Pareidolia is a really fun phenomenon where the mind perceives something to look like something else which is not related. While not all of the photos in this list suggest pareidolia it does bring together a great wee collection of things that look like other things, and who’s not gonna be interested in that? Our minds are hot wired to recognise familiar shapes and patterns, especially faces where they do not exist so we can quickly assess the information and know how we should react. While none of these pictures need to invoke the fight or flight mechanism…it’s still fun to see things where they are not!
