I saw it, but the pole`s shadow ruined the effect.

I found it in like 4 seconds, if it took you more then 10, then your logical progression may not be in order.

Hmm.. i had to read comments to `get this` sadly was a dissapointment to me,, I was thinking oooh what could it be?? #1 the loch ness monster in the front trying to eat the person in yellow....?? No..., How about the boat trying to eat the smaller boat,or in turn trying to eat the smallest boat... No..., Perhaps it was the SMALL person getting bigger and bigger and yet bigger again and then turning into 2 (yes 2) people!! OMFG!!!.. nope it was the chick on an apparently `magic carpet`?? Seriously!! ?? drated up!

@intrigid

I think that`s the point of `when you see it` pictures.

Wow. Some optical illusion. I saw the "correct" interpretation and it took me about 30 seconds to find the "illusion". Whoever posted this should be pushed down an M.C. Escher staircase.

It`s an ordinary photograph that some people want to pretend is special. They`re probably American.
They`re simple folk and easily impressed. They probably think it`s magic.

If you look JUST RIGHT the big flag shadow at the bottom looks like it could be the planks shadow... making it look like she is a flying carpet...

Unless someone actually tell what is supposed to be the so-called illusion, I don`t see anything wrong... 1. her shadow is cast in the same angle as the flag (you can even see the pile of paper`s shadow that she reads and mic, 2. the platform does not float above the sand; sand is not flat, so of course there will be parts of the board not touching the ground.. it`s physics! 3. all flag poles are floating in the right direction... so what is it? Really?

That looks like a plank of wood, not a carpet... To me at least.

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride...

She`s not casting a shadow. She must be a vampyre.

Sweet illusion! And not shopped, staged or faked which is extra-sweet!

check it again guys. this isn`t shopped. it might help if you put your thumb over the shadow of the flag and just looked at the lady standing on the square of wood. you can even see where the sand is touching the wood.

Or, there`s another flag out of view over the photographer`s right hand shoulder.

@Freddyferret Wrong. the shadow which appears to be the carpet and mic stand, is actually a shadow cast from a flag on a pole out of camera sight. Notice the flags in the background? i`d bet you there are more, this wasn`t set up to be an illusion, some bystander probably noticed it and thought it looked cool, i dknow i do.

Smutleybutt and Thetas:
Does it really not look to you as if the speaker and rug are floating above the sand? Only it`s a flag`s shadow causing the effect? Huh? Huh?

The shadow of a flag seems to be to be the shadow of the platform and microphone. Thus, levitation.
