I've come across this picture, to see what it says you need to look at it cross eyed, now i've tried but just can't seem to do it.

Can anyone out there tell me what it says, It's GPS co-ordinates that much I know


cross eyed picture


thanks

Greg

Interestingly, I seem to be able to view it in two ways.

One where the text is going into the page when I keep a constant distance from the screen and just go cross-eyed.

The other way (i.e. text popping out of the screen) when I start with my nose nearly touch the screen and then slowly pulling away until the text becomes visible.

It's for a Geocache, I expected full co-ordinates, but just had to add the numbers to the listed co-ords

It's Ohaupo (Hamilton) way

No - let your eyes go out of focus and they will often pick up on a common point in an image which starts to bring things in line differently.

I remember it happening naturally when I was looking at the wire of the clothes line against the sky - the wire looked normal until I got to the end or something behind it and the other thing had two outlines, but the line didn't
