An interesting perceptual illusion. If you're looking at these pictures right in front of you on your screen, you will probably see an angry guy on the left, and a serene looking woman on the right. But try to move further away, and you'll discover that it is quite the other way around.

Ah, you're right. And if you squint really hard, you'll look like the mean, angry guy.

just let your vision go out of focus.

However, it was actually the reverse for me. I saw the angry woman on the left, and the calm man on the right. Then when I backed up, I saw what you mentioned was supposed to be when you were close. I wonder my perception is backwards. Maybe I have a keen awareness, or maybe I just need glasses, or maybe I'm just abnormal, who knows?
