The Ghost of Babinda Boulders
According to legend, the ghost of Babinda Boulders in Australia lures young men to their death. (I think Babinda Boulders is also called Devil's Pool.) A recent visitor to the site took a photo in which a "ghost face" appeared. Or so she claims. I can't see anything. Can you? Link:

Yes, but I needed help eg "There really is a ghost face between the two boulders and if you believe, you'll see."

It's a fairly clear face of an Aboriginal woman, tilted 30degrees to the left. Overall, that's 1/4 left, middle vertical of the pic. It looks "better" on the site.

"I can't see anything. Can you?"

Only if the Ghost of Babinda Boulders is a Sleestak who died after being punched repeatedly in the face.

I see a cow. Man, she must've really let herself go.

I see a couple of faces - but you have to "look" for them - sort of like staring at clouds and letting your mind make them into things.

I circled the 'face'... I didn't really see it until i zoomed in on the picture a bit... I still don't think it's anything, but I guess that's what they're talking about...

Hey, how about a little respect here people?

This is old-time stuff, like when the USA wasn't even thought off type stuff. We're talking 40,000 years...

Show us you're not a bunch of rednecks.

I saw a witch and a bunny rabbit. And a lot of turtles...

Joel, what is 40000 years old? Pareidolia?
