What do you see in this picture, a young girl or an old woman?

I see both. Keeps flicking between the two every second or so.

The first image I saw on opening the page, exclusively was a young woman from behind three-quarter view. Had I not already been prompted by Janalov to go look for another interpretation that first image and interpretation would probably have remained the only one I saw.

Scanning the image for another alternative 'solution' then I saw the face of the old woman in profile.

Once we see both we can choose to shift between them. Curiosity prompts us to discover existing alternative solutions if they are there. Creativity enables us to form additional new solutions from the same source material. smiley

Young girl every time for me. I have to ‘unfocus’ My eyes for the old woman to come into view, but it’s prety difficult.

It's funny.... when I looked at this same picture in my younger days, the first thing I saw was the young girl. But now, I primarily see the old woman.

Yikes! I first saw the young woman, then after scanning for a bit saw the old lady.... yikes, she's creepy, once you see her you can't unsee.... I like the young lady version better lol

Perspective is a funny thing.  :)

It is amazing to me how it changes over time.

Took me a few tries to find both the young girl and the old woman.

Young girl. Would have stopped there but the title prompted me to look for the old woman.

Too late now but it might have been more interesting if the OP just said "what do you see in this picture?"

It took me about a minute to see the old woman.  Not to steal Jan's thunder, but do you all see the inner circles of this image turning very slowly?

My eyes went to the old woman's nose. Then her eye. Had to search for the young. Oh well, I found the young girl years ago. And we grew old together.

The old woman looks like a caricature while the young woman looks like a realistic sketch.  for me, it is just so much easier to see a young woman.
