That's just a simple, normal wall, isn't it? My ass. There's something about this photo that packs a punch. But at first, hardly anyone sees it.
Munich - A wall. It's just a normal wall. Oh, and somewhere between two bricks there is a little stone. That's all most people see in a photo that has been circulating on the net for a long time.
But the picture has it all. Because it contains a detail that almost no one notices at first. But when the time comes, most people don't see anything else. This can be seen, for example, in the comments on Bored Panda, where such fascinating photos are often shown. Have you noticed?
"I thought it was a rock in a crevice," writes one user. "I still don't see it," says another.
Spectacular optical illusion: Wall photo shows cigar
A user clarifies - and also describes how it caught his eye. "When I first saw it (months ago), I saw a rock/pebble between the bricks... but then my brain switched to what it really is. And now I can't 'see' the cigar, no matter how much I squint or turn my head." That's right: there's a cigar in the wall. In case you still don't notice them, we've circled them for you:

It is probably a real cigar and not an optical illusion. Rather, it consists of not being recognized at first. But then I don't see anything else.
