    OTOH, if I intentionally cross my eyes, like I'm trying to look at something closer, the pictures end up being inverted, with the parts that are supposed to be farther away appearing closer, and vice versa. So a whale looks like a whale-shaped hole, for example.
    Interesting.

      You know those "find the difference in these two pictures" things? Here is an easy way to do that. Look at the two side by side pictures cross-eyed until you see the overlapped picture in the middle, the differences will stand out easily, they will "shimmer".

        I'll take your word on it although I spotted the ones I marked in 30 seconds doing it the old fashioned way.

        And noticed another (towel on side of hot tub) as I was posting it.

          Jake noticed right off that the girl in the hot tub was nekked.

          (Though, these days, it's possible that's a guy)

            All the dang-blasted barber shops are closed in his area!

            Oh, and I just noticed #7.

              I find that when I look at them wall-eyed, it's a little harder to focus, but the differences stand out a little better. (Interestingly, the two that I missed cross-eyed were two of the three that rogue didn't notice in 30 seconds.)

                  There were 3 I didn't spot right away (I'm actually quite good at this sort of thing).

                  The towel I saw while posting.

                  The lawn chair I noticed when replying to Cow Poke


                  Probably spent 90 seconds. And just spent another minute but did not spot the last one.

                        Dang. And I kept returning to the hot tub because something seemed off.

                          Using my cross eyed technique I can see them all at once.

                            I'm pretty sure most of us see that as a swimming pool.

                            • You can also used the cross-eyed technique to see 3D photographs:

                              You can find a ton of those old 3D stereo photos online. Here is one of a woman using one of the stereo viewers:
