People Playing With Clouds And Forced Perspective

Cloud watching’s O.K, but these days it’s cloud photography that’s all the rage. We collected these 18 photos of people creating clever and playful photos with clouds to show you just how fun and easy it can be.

In addition to a camera and suitable weather, you’ll need a vivid imagination. You’ll be engaged in pareidolia*, which is our psychological propensity towards giving some sort of meaning to random stimuli (usually images).

Pareidolia* : they are smiling, being angry or amazed. However, what some may call acuteness to detail is usually attributed to a psychological phenomenon, called pareidolia – that’s when a person perceives a random stimulus as something significant, for e.g., sees faces on clouds or buildings.
