More Pariedolia

The entry on pariedolia 
(seeing meaningful images in random patterns)
 has quite a few photo examples, including one from the legendary White Mountains.
It's the example of pariedlolia that most people would recognize,
New Hampshire's "Old Man of the Mountain,"
which was lost in a rock slide May 3, 2003:

Here's one on the wikipedia site from Scotland:
File:Ivy on tree in Burn anne Woodland.JPG

It's supposed to look like a man trying to climb up the tree.
It looks to me like the tree is carrying the man,
but that's the fun thing about pariedolia.
It's all in the eye of the beholder.
Tomorrow, more pariedolia.
