    I`m wondering if this was set up, or a really good coincidence.

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

    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?

    Isobel beat me to it. It`s shopped, the speaker`s shadow is going the other direction.

    @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.

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

    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.

    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?

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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!

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