The face inside the coffee beans

In this image there is a man's face. Can you see it?

I came across this picture on my friend Gavin's blog and thought it was worth a mention. Being the slow person that i am, it took me about 10 minutes to see the face - in fact it frustrated me so much i concluded that it was all a joke and there was no face to be seen at all... but then after a little clue from Matt (who found it much quicker than i), i saw it and felt a fool for not having seen it sooner!

As is a habit of mine, the picture prompted a train of thought. It made me think how easy it can be to think something doesn't exist or isn't true just because you can't see it immediately, or because you don't take the time or have the patience to really look for it. But even then you may never see it, unless your eyes are opened by someone else. Hmm. Yes. What lessons you can learn from coffee beans.

Hahahahaha! That's hillarious! I was looking so hard, going cross eyed, gazing at it, doing the magic eye trick, looking upside down, you name it, I tried it!I even noticed that some of the coffee beans had been duplicated but still was none the wiser but believed you that it must be there, then hey presto, I saw him! Genius! I love it! x
